Creating smiles one card at a time | Bring Smiles to Seniors Cards

Hello there! Happy Tuesday! Hope you all are having an amazing day! 😊

There are different ways to discovering creativity but did you know you can also create smiles just by sending cards?

Getting a card in the mail isn’t something that’s done very often now but when it is there’s a beautiful thing that happens. When opening a card and reading such a beautiful message it creates a smile on their face. It brings joy and happiness for that special moment in their day and that smile, joy and happiness can carry on from that moment forward every time it’s opened. 😊

One day while making cards I asked myself where can I send my cards to help create more smiles and spread more happiness and joy? After doing a bit of research that’s where I found a beautiful organization called Bring Smiles to Seniors.

Bring Smiles to Seniors is a non-profit organization founded by an amazing person named Ron. With the help of his amazing volunteers they have been bringing many smiles to many seniors. Even through set backs and hard times he has never given up and he is always so encouraging and positive. Being apart of bring smiles to seniors makes me feel like it’s all one big happy family creating smiles one card at a time.

Below are five different cards I made for Bring Smiles to Seniors. If you would like to learn more / participate in this beautiful organization you can visit their page by clicking the links below 😊:

To create this card I used a pretty pink, white, and blue lined scrapbook paper to set as my background. I then cut out a light brown card stock paper and a green striped card stock paper for the center. I then printed the words “Some bunny loves you!” on a light brown card stock paper and placed that on top. To complete my card I added these adorable bunny stickers along with three little heart stickers. πŸ°πŸ’•

Card number two

I’m sharing with you my Happy Easter Card featuring a super cute shaker easter egg sticker! I really enjoyed making this card I think these colors are so vibrant and pretty together 😊

To create this card I used this very pretty spring themed card stock paper to set as my background. I used the Martha Stewart edge punch to create this pretty pattern cut and placed that towards the bottom of the card and tied a bow using a mint glittery colored ribbon.

For the center of my card I used a foam circle sticker and added a purple card stock to create the backing. I then added two foam pattern sticker eggs on each side. To completed my card I added this really cute shaker sticker egg πŸ₯and a sticker that says Happy Easter! 😊

I’m sharing with you my I love you watts & watts card featuring a cute little light bulb sticker! I thought I’d make this super simple but super cute card using this adorable light bulb sticker! 😊

Love you watts and watts card 1

To create this card I started off by setting my background with this really pretty wood theme cardstock paper with printed hearts. I added a few dimensional heart stickers on top of the already printed hearts. I also added to different pink colored card stock papers towards the side of my card. The top pink card stock paper was already a fading pink color but to enhance that a bit more I used an eraser to wash the color out for the top. To complete my card I used this really cute light bulb sticker and I added two little googly eyes for its eyes. 😊

    What a lovely thing to do. Nice cards. I recently started snail mailing and exchanging crafty bits with some new penpals who also love crafting. It is so lovely to open letters and parcels.
