Cards for Little Hearts Winter Card Drive: Winter Greetings

Then comes Winter, with bluster and snow,
That brings to our cheeks the ruddy glow...
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, "The Four Seasons" (1940s)

Cards for Little Hearts is a global card drive, comprised of crafters dedicated to bringing smiles, hope and encouragement to as many children with congenital heart disease as possible by providing heart center staff with handmade cards that are given to patients during their hospitalization.


Our Winter card drive for Cards for Little Hearts (HERE) is winding down so only a few days left to get your cards mailed in.

The current card drive ends November 1st with a need for Winter-Themed (non-religious) "Thinking of You" type cards. Please read the guideline page located on the Cards for Little Hearts' website for important guidelines prior to making and sending in your cards. You can also find additional helpful resources on the FAQs page and a Sentiments List. There is also a Gallery page if you need some inspiration. If you have any questions about the guidelines or the card drive itself, please contact Christina Hor directly (HERE), founder of Cards for Little Hearts.

I’m sharing another cute Winter Themed card based on a card sketch from Off the Rails Scrapbooking. The “Design Paper” is actually a card base set from American Crafts that I picked up a recent crop (I used one to punch out the scalloped circle)
