Welcome to the Ronald McDonald House

As part of a month long challenge on Christian Card Makers, we have volunteered to make 30 cards apiece to be used in the Welcome Baskets that families receive when they arrive at the Ronald McDonald House. 
Our effort this time is going to the Levine Children's Cancer Center in Charlotte, NC.

Although we can do different designs, I decided to make mine the same stamped image and use a variety of background papers.
I selected a cute daisy stamp from Unity Stamp Company, 
and these are my finished products, ready for mailing. 

Since I had such a large quantity to make I tackled it in stages. 
The smaller image didn't require a lot of shading, so I was able to use a handful of Copics.

Once colored, I then used the Spellbinder S5-014, Deckled Mega Small Rectangle die for each image.

The requirement was that each card have WELCOME or JUST FOR YOU on the front.  

And then another 30 runs through the die machine using Spellbinder Deco Rectangles to get the background pieces

Let the assembly begin - tying brown twine, adding the tag and a loopy bow...

and mounting the background onto the A2 card base, then adding the flower image and gluing down the Welcome tag.

Whew! That's a lot of card making!  But what a great feeling knowing they will add that little personal touch to the baskets the families receive. I'm honored that we have this opportunity to donate our cards to this charity.

Thank you for stopping by today!
Serving a Risen Savior,
