She Believed...Breast Cancer thank you....

HI all! I have been making cards like mad for some orders that I've received. I made 24 of this card....2 separate orders for the Breast Cancer walks that have been happening.

I wanted to make this card really special. When I think of the Avon 3 day I think of women from all over the world joining together in a band of sisterhood that is unbreakable. I had a vision of lining the figures up around the globe but it didn't quite work the way I wanted to so instead I decided to make a chain of women holding hands.


I started by stamping the Leaf and Floral Background in Pink Pirouette from Stampin' Up! I used my Silhouette to cut a bunch of the women icons out of different colored pink papers. The shape is from Lori Whitlock. I also cut the pink ribbons out with my Silhouette. I used a bunch of different 6x6 paper pads to add a border that was punched with my Fiskars punch. I then stamped that awesome Studio Calico/Hero Arts stamp on the bottom. They were super fast.

To make cards like this go faster I do one step at a time on all the cards. When it came to putting the icons on the cards I ran them through my little Xyron X. I love that thing. This made it go super fast!

Off to make more cards. See you soon....
