Pink and Support the Cure

by Shannon

Several scrapbooking blogs are encouraging the scraping community to send cards to specific individuals who are battling breast cancer. If you have some free time and want to make cards to send to others who need love, prayers, and support, please see these blogs:

Brenda just found out that she has breast cancer. She is having a full body CT today to see if the cancer has spread to other parts of her body (she needs all of our prayers TODAY!) and is going into surgery on Friday for a double mastectomy (more prayers please!). Enclose a pink ribbon - Brenda can keep them as a representation of the many prayers are being said for her. Her address is: Brenda Followell, 6425 East H Avenue, Kalamazoo, MI 49048

This Pink Week is dedicated to our friend Monique Griffith who is going through Breast Cancer treatment right now. She has surgery this week and we would love it if we could flood her mailbox with cards & goodies! Her address is: Monique Griffith, 1879 Butterfly Ct., Rocklin, CA 95765

For Brenda and Monique, I made pink Marigold flowers and their cards say, "Blessed are the joy makers", which scrapbookers really are.

- White Cardstock
- 2 sheets Pink cardstock
- Pink patterned cardstock
- Cricut, Sure Cuts a Lot, my Marigold flower files OR pre-bought Prima flower embellishments
- Border punch
- Rhinestones
- Cuttlebug and embossing folder
- Flourish stamp and pink ink
- Saying stamp and black ink

1. I cut the pink cardstock to 5 X 8. Fold in half to make a 5 X 4 card
2. Cut white cardstock to 4 5/8" X 3. Border punch the 4 5/8" side.
3. Cut a strip of the pink patterned cardstock to 4 5/8" by 1". Border punch the 4 5/8" side.
4. Stamp pink flourishes over the white cardstock
5. Emboss the white stamped paper
6. Affix the white stamped paper on top of, and aligned to, the pink patterned paper.
7. Stamp a saying across the bottom of the card. I use black archival ink.
8. Fix the pink/white cardstock assembly to the upper half of the card
9. Create marigold flowers or use prima flowers.
10. Decorate flowers with rhinestones
11. Glue flowers to the card.

I used Sure Cuts a Lot and my Cricut to create the Marigold flowers on these cards.
