Quick Christmas cards for Charity.

One of our customers raises a lot money for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.

A couple of weeks ago she was asking if I had any ideas for making some quick Christmas cards for one of her fund raising events. Theses are a few of the cards I came up with. I forgot to photograph them all! I know I am always doing that.


The first one is a mix of punched leaves in an assortment of greens to make arranged in a circle. The white flowers are Dovecraft, the packs contain a mix of white flowers and leaves for 99p yes, a bargain. I have layered two of the flowers together with silicone, edged with Stickles and liquid pearl centre. The sentiment is Craftwork cards with added ribbon.

For this one I cut the base wreath on the Cricut with the 'Joys of the Season' cartridge in a dark green a few more assorted punched leaves. The red flowers are from Dovecraft a spotted ribbon bow and Craftwork card sentiment. All the flowers are edged with Star Dust Stickles.

This one also has a base wreath cut on the Cricut more white flowers and punch foliage added finished with a bow and sentiment and Stickles.

I hope Diana and her team of ladies managed to sell them. Diana started raising money for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice when she was 72 years young, that was over seven years ago, she has now raised £69,000 and is an inspiration to us all. Well done Diana!
