Red Cross Month

Red Cross Card

Hello Friends, 

Did you know that March is Red Cross Month?  Naturally, that made me think of a new card idea!  The chubby little animals from the Welcome Easter stamp set was calling out, "Pick me, pick me".  Plus, with the Coronavirus Pandemic in full swing, this "Thinking of you with all my heart" card would be a happy card to find in your mailbox.

Red Cross Card Tips

Fashioning the Red Cross hat was simple.  First, I cut a small rectangle to fit the chick's head.  Next, I cut a partial 1" circle and tucked that behind the rectangle.  I cut my cross with a die from the Cross of Hope die set and trim it just a bit to fit my hat. Also, I thought that the hat front looked too rigid, so bent and crinkled the rectangle just a bit.

Next, I stamped "Thinking of you with all my heart" with a stamp from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and framed it with a pretty stitched scalloped rectangle (Stitched So Sweetly Dies). Then, I stamped the sweet bunny from the Welcome Easter Stamp set, colored and snipped his head from the rest of his body, so that I could position him to look like he is sitting behind our sentiment.  Note:  All the animals were fussy cut.

The paper is the From the Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper.  To ground my animals I backed them with two Heart Doilies.

Red Cross Month How You Can Help

American Red Cross Blood Supplies Are At Risk.   Abby Hornacek has launched a Social Media Campaign to address the severe shortage of blood donations during the Coronavirus Outbreak.  The #BringtheBlood Challenge was started following an urgent call to action from the U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams last week.

"Social distancing doesn't have to mean social disengagement," said Adams.  We can stay safe and stay six-feet apart from each other.  The Red Cross is sanitizing absolutely everything, taking temperatures before to make sure that we are healthy.

"Donating one bag of blood can save up to three lives," concluded Hornacek. "There are still people that need this blood to survive — that is why the #BloodTheBring challenge was started.  Hopefully, it will inspire people to give.
