National Craft Month - Embossing Challenge

Did you know that March is National Craft Month?  As crafters who like to help others, we want to recognize your devotion and good will in donating beautiful cards for people facing cancer.  We continue to receive cards that impress us here at Card Care Connection as well as the card recipients.

The challenge for cards this month is a crafting technique that we love – embossing.  Embossing is a technique where paper is pressed to create a raised design in the paper, and it is a technique that can add a touch of elegance to a greeting card.  We also encourage texture in our cards because it can be a helpful aid for our elderly patients who may have trouble with their vision and seeing the detail in a card.  The embossing adds another element that can be accessed through the sense of touch, and can make the impact of the card even more powerful.  Thank you all for putting your craft skills to a good cause!  We’re excited to see the embossing that you send our way!

Our next quarterly newsletter is coming out soon, too.  Make sure you are signed up to receive it by visiting our website here.
Thanks to Deb P. and Diamond Lake Lutheran church for these creations.
