Christmas In July Special Send-A-Card-2-Care-Contest

I am so excited to share this Send-A-Card-To-Share Contest.  I am sending my cards to my favorite people; the children at St. Jude's. I am making these adorable snail cards this week that the children can give out to people they want to say thank you to. It is so easy to make cards in multiples with the new Cricut Explore. Why don't you give it a try, make our troops or some needy children happy and maybe even win a prize!!!
You are encouraged to make as many cards as you can for either our troops or the children at St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Each card you send will give you 1 entry in this contest.

Now wasn't that easy? I just love making cute little animal cards because everyone likes them and they are so easy to make. I keep all my parts together when I am sizing to insure they will all fit together. Just remember to put your base together and then flip, line up and then weld the base of the card together.

Here is a photo of the first three I put together and they are adorable. I was able to get 8 cards out of 4 sheets of 12x12 and 8 sheets of 8 1/2x11. I used scraps for the antennas, a google eye and a white gel pen to make them pop.

This is a close up of the card, as you can see the paper just shimmers with a copper color and of course you have to add a little bling to make it look really good!

This is the inside of the card. Then sentiment is from CTMH and just stamps so easy I love it. There is enough space on the inside to write a little note and sign their name.

Here is my first three and they are adorable. Now it's time for you to get your cards ready to make someone else happy. Click this link to learn how to make your cards. bit.ly/Cards4Love
