Stampin' Up! Creating Kindness Blog Hop "Charity"

Stampin' Up! demonstratrice Stampin' Sacha - Creating Kindness Blog Hop "Charity"


Welcome to the December (video) blog hop of our Creating Kindness Design Team! This month the theme is "Charity". When you think of charity, you might think of something big, but that doesn't always have to be. Due to health reasons I had to keep my charity small, but it still means I can make one family happy this month! I've chosen to make a Christmas gift box with six cards with the Seasonal Chums Bundle. I'll give it to a charity which will raffle it to one of the families they take care off, who have little or no money to live from.



I made six cards in total. In the photo's shown above you can see I made a see through shaker card (left photo) and with the oval I had left I made a more simple card (right photo). I think they both look beautiful, but this way you can use the products you've got left.


I did the same with the next two cards. The one on the left is a shaker card with snow. I embossed the sentiment with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder in the shaker bit. The card on the right is more simple with just a see through window.


For my video I made another two cards and the gift box. Of course I stamped the envelopes, so everything matched. I loved creating this set of cards and the matching gift box for a family, so they can give some cards away with the holidays!


Because I've made six different cards it's a bit too much to give the measurements of all the cards, but I think they are quite easy to recreate as these are just standard card sizes and layers.

happy crafting! sacha

  6. Great cards Sacha! I love your idea to donate to a charity that will help support a family through the holidays. Is so much more personal than donating to a huge charity. My favorite is the belly band you used to wrap the bunch of cards tougher. That's something that I sometimes struggle with and you nailed it!
