CAS Kindness Card – Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop

By Taheerah | 30th September 2016 | 205 Comments

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!

Tomorrow, 1st October, is World Card Making Day. But it’s also the start of a very special event: the Caring Hearts Card Drive.


Now entering its 7th year, the Caring Hearts Card Drive is headed up by Vera Yates. Vera, along with Jennifer McGuire and a team of volunteers, collect handmade holiday cards sent in by people from all over the world, and then distribute them to elderly people living in care homes. After a couple of years of wanting to get involved with the Drive (but with personal things getting in the way) I’m personally delighted to be heading up the UK/Europe arm of things this year! The Card Drive runs from 1st October – 25th November 2016 inclusive. Tune in to Vera’s blog tomorrow for more details!

In the meantime, we are joining in with SugarPea Designs today, who have a special release especially for the Caring Hearts Drive! Wendy has designed some amazing stamps and dies with a kindness theme in mind! The release is already available on the SugarPea Designs website, and 20% of all proceeds from sales of the Caring Hearts stamp set and dies to the Alzheimers Association too!

I went for a super-CAS design that lets the message of the Drive shine through:

Caring Hearts - One Kind Word Can Change Someone's Day Card by Taheerah Atchia

I used the heartbeat image from the Caring Hearts set and heat embossed it with sparkling red embossing powder to make it pop!

The sentiment I used is from the Kindness Matters set and is actually one stamp but I selectively inked it so I could split it between the heartbeat.

Love how it turned out!
