Default Challenge FF16DrSonja - Birthday Cards with a Special Wrinkle

Challenge Title: Birthday Cards with a Special Wrinkle
to Benefit Hospice of St. Francis

Hostess: Dr Sonja -- (Sonja Van Laar)
Keyword: FF16DrSonja
Date: Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Our first charity card drive is to benefit Hospice of St. Francis in Melbourne, FL. As Lydia has explained in the introductory thread, their biggest need is birthday cards. Each card should be blank inside, and sent with an envelope.



To get your creative mojo revved up, this challenge is to make your birthday card with some wrinkles! I sometimes feel, as I grow older, that birthdays bring more wrinkles than presents. However, with card making techniques, we can put these wrinkles to our advantage. You may want to try a new technique, or stick with old favorites, in any case - add some wrinkles to a birthday card:

Faux Silk tutorial
Distress techniques
Shabby Chic techniques
You might also try using materials that are corrugated, crinkled, crushed, texture paste, ridged, rumpled or any other version of wrinkles you can think of


After you post to the gallery, package your cards carefully and send your gift to:

Mary Larson, Volunteer Coordinator
Hospice of St. Francis
4875 North Wickham Road, Suite 104
Melbourne, FL 32940

Let's make Mary's wish come true to have a handmade card for every patient at the ready.

Thank you to the hostesses who created sample cards:
Ann, Teresa, Holly, Patty, Lisa, Kyra, Ceal
