Default Cards for Cubs - card drive for foster kids

This looks like a great cause to support with our cards, driven by Bearly Art! Collection begins March 1st.

https://bearly.art/pages/cfc-about

Quote:

This is our second annual #CardsForCubs event. Last year we raised over 6,500 cards and had over 750 volunteers. This year we have a new goal... 450,000 Cards is a near impossible goal, but with your help and support we can accomplish the impossible! Help us bring awareness to these kids and join us as we put meaning behind our crafts.

This card drive looks like an excellent one to support. I have already set aside some cards to send. Thanks for sharing, Dina!

I signed up. I didn't want to overestimate how many cards I could send so I just put myself down for 20. If I can make more before the March 31 deadline, I'll send them along as well.

There are a LOT of foster kids in our local school district. I used to think they all lived with foster families, loving people who opened their homes out of the goodness of their heart. Boy were my eyes opened when I learned that most of the older kids are housed in group homes with caretakers who work shifts solely to collect a paycheck and then leave.

I bought a box of #6-3/4 envelopes and a pack of 12x12 cardstock at Walmart - there are 100 envelopes and the 12" cardstock will give me 4 bases per sheet for mini slimlines.... not sure if I will be able to make 100, but I have some digis that will speed up the work if I can block some time out!

I'm thinking about doing this and checked their guidelines. It doesn't give a recommended size...what do you all think? A2 size would be standard I think. I'm going to do 'Thinking of You' and encouragement type cards. I'd love to hear other suggestions.

I'm in! I've registered a lower amount also, but will be updating when I send the cards out. This is awesome. Thank you for posting the link. I was looking for somewhere to donate to.

Just breaking down my project into smaller steps... pledged 100 today. So far, bases are scored and cut, and today I'll print 13 sheets of fronts. It was fun going through my collection of digital stamps to find tall ones for 3x6 cards! Added my own sentiments. Another day this week I'll cut those out and another day I'll add some accent colors to each one. Slow and steady!

OK, checking in with an update!! These are SUPER simple and I hope that encourages people to see that cards don't have to be expert or extravagant to bring a smile! I also thought the kids might have fun coloring in the rest of the image if they wanted. I used digital stamps and broke my process down into simple steps. Most of the cards are just general encouragement cards, but there are a few birthday ones too.

On a side note, has anyone tried Bearly Art glue? I bought one of their little sample packs to try. I'm curious if it dries matte. I'll report back when I get it and can test it out! (btw, shipping was free, which I didn't expect!)

I posted my cards yesterday. I almost doubled my pledge. I found I don't have many stamps for kids, so I'll have to fill in the gap so that I'm ready for next year's drive.

I sent my cards out Monday. It was fun to do cards for children of different age groups again. I'll keep this project in mind throughout the year.

I have the glue - it doesn’t dry matte. I was very disappointed with that cause I’m not very steady when putting down die cut words. I ordered some Ranger Multi Medium Matte finish today. And, now I’m not happy with that decision cause I just remembered one of the moderators said regular Elmer’s dries clear and matte and that would have been a much lower price. Oh well! FYI - the clear Elmer’s glue dries shiny.

Yep, I'm a big fan of Elmer's glue-all for die cuts.

Hotwheels (Linda) and I are sending out the cards we made during March for foster kids.
We thought to make a little guessing game for everyone. How many cards are we sending?

Birthday cards?
All Occasion cards?

Take a guess and post your answer. I will count our cards and reveal the answer.
This is just for fun because Linda likes games!

I am going to guess that you and Linda made 30 birthday cards and 20 all occasion cards. So fun seeing the cards you were able to create during the Virtual Stamp Night. They were so fun!

Dr Sonja and Linda- what an awesome effort your two make to create wonderful cards together! I love seeing your joint creations! I love that you created for the kids!

I mailed out a much smaller number, but all made with love and prayers!
