Did you ever send a card to a complete stranger? Thanks to Facebook, I have sent a few. A couple of weeks ago there was a request to send a card to a WWII vet for his 102nd birthday. He hoped to get 102 cards. I sent one and it turned out to be one of over 10,000 cards he received. How awesome is that!
This card was made for a little girl named Emma. Emma is 7 and has terminal cancer. She wants to get cards from your pets. Well, my 2 dogs and one cat would not cooperate so I took charge. I actually had this card made, minus the “Hi Emma” so it was as simple as adding Hi Emma from vinyl.
This was a My Scrap Chick purchased file. I simply cut the cat from cardstock, used chalk to shade the face, a white paint pen to do the details, and assembled. Paper piecing is therapeutic! The Hi Emma is vinyl.
If you want to send Emma a card, here is her address for cards.
My son recently bought his own practice and moved from San Diego to Wisconsin.Then they got a kitten to keep their older cat company. Their older cat had a skin condition which made it scratch and caused sores. So like any good cat person, his better half Annie, had a dress made so the open area would be covered and ordered a matching dress for the kitten. I applied the logo to the dresses. The kitten in a Savannah hybrid, her name is Lily. The older cat , Mia, has since healed and the kitten has outgrown her dress.
And then because at one time I had ordered 200 koozies ( just in case I ever needed a koozie) I made some Koozies with their logo.
Both were pretty simple. My son had designed the logo and sent it to me as a jpeg. I was able to trace it and turn it into a KNK file. I then mirrored the image and cut it from the heat transfer vinyl. When cutting htv I use a lower force but do a multiple cut with 2 passes. It seems to weed better this way. I don’t do a lot with htv and my heat press compared to regular vinyl, but everytime I make something with HTV I am so happy that I invested in a heat press.
