Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hi Everyone!

October is breast cancer awareness month. It’s a time when we come together to raise awareness for early detection and raise funds for research, community programs and more.

If someone you know, a friend, family member or even co-worker finds themselves with a breast cancer diagnosis it can be tricky to know what to say, or do.

We think a nice card, with a heartfelt message is a great way to let someone know that you are there for them.

Today we’re sharing a card we made using the Lifestyle Crafts QuicKutz awareness ribbon.

To create this card I die cut 24 of the awareness ribbon in pink cardstock. This cardstock has been in my stash for quite some time, so I’m not sure of the brand, but it has a slighty distressed look to it.

I used a 6.25″ x 5″ off white card base. It was looking a bit plain, so I used some Stampin’ up chalk to add a bit of pink colour to the background.

I carefully adhered the ribbons to the card base, ensuring that they were evenly spaced.

I created the ‘hope’ sentiment with the DCVW Chickadee stack. I trimmed the ends of 2 sheets from the paper pad and adhered one under the other. The white, glittery letters are extras from my stash.

Before I adhered the sentiment to the card, I took a piece of white ribbon and folded it over on either end to create a loop. I glued that to the card base first, then the sentiment on top.

That’s it, pretty simple card, and it came together quickly.

Thanks for looking and see below for some links on how you can help the fight against breast cancer.
