Smile Train

I hadn't realised how long it had been since I had posted last but I have a good excuse, well two really. Firstly I have had a chest infection which I have not been able to shake and I have not felt like crafting and so I did not have anything to write about. Secondly, when I did feel up to crafting, I have been frantically making Easter cards to sell at Church to help raise funds for our Lenten Charity Smile Train Smile Train is a Charity that repairs cleft  lips and palates of Children who live in poverty and would otherwise have no access to medical care. Please take some time to look at their web site, it is a wonderful charity.

The card above is just one of the many cards I have made. The cross is a Medallion stamp from Creative Expressions called Kilkenny Cross. I stamped it 4 times and then cut down and coloured the layers before constructing them into one cross using foam squares to give it height. The papers are from the K&Co Luxury paper pack, it is hard to see but the brocade pattern from the background of the blue paper also runs through the white paper. I added some extra sparkle to the swirls with Star Dust Stickles but it has not shown up well in the photo. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the ribbons are from my stash as is the silver peel off sentiment 'Happy Easter' which also does not show up too well in the photo.


  1. Beautiful card - and very worthy cause :)

  2. Ooo.. I like this Elaina - a lot! *Ü* I hope you will feel better very soon. TFS. ~Glen~
