Cards For A Cause

I’m taking a break from painting and crafting for a few weeks, so this is a wonderful opportunity to tell you about Cards For A Cause. I first heard about this challenge on Reilly and Denny’s blog, Reilly & Denny The Cowspotdogs. It is simply an invitation to create a card (or set of cards) and donate them to the “cause of the month”.

Paper Pumpkin Box May 2013

This brings me to something new…Paper Pumpkin. Paper Pumpkin is monthly subscription service from Stampin’ Up! where you receive all the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create a papercraft project. These monthly subscription programs are all the rage. Don’t tell the pups, but our subscription to BarkBox is done, and I’m going to give this a try for a bit.

Paper Pumpkin Kit May 2013

Even though I’m on a break, I couldn’t help but give this a try when it arrived. Everything you need (with the exception of adhesive) is included and all the pieces are pre-cut. Your first shipment includes an acrylic block that works for all future stamp sets.

The only change I made was to replace the button accent. I wanted to make them easier to send through the mail, so I replaced the regular button with a soft felt button.

Isn’t this a wonderful challenge for cardmakers? You get to indulge your love of cardmaking and then the cards are used to brighten the lives of others.
