Welcome to my blog today!
I'm thrilled you are visiting me and I hope you'll take the time to visit all the other wonderful Stampin' Up! Leaders who are participating in the Stamp Out Autism Blog Hop. #stampoutautism
When I was thinking about my project I wanted to create something that reflected the love and concern that is evident for those who deal daily with Autism. Not just those who suffer with it, but their families and friends who love them dearly and make many sacrifices because of this terrible condition.
The heart-shaped puzzle was my inspiration so I created a heart-shaped card made up of a collage of smaller hearts. Each overlapping the other like hugs.
Here, take a look:
I have several friends who have autistic children and relatives and to a person, they all say the same thing about their loved ones - they make their hearts happy! I thought this was a perfect tribute to those families.
The products I used to create this card all co-ordinated so well together - the Hearts Framelits were used to create the card front and the easel base as well as the greeting piece.
I used the Sweetheart Punch for all the small hearts and punched them out of two different Designer Series Papers - Birthday Bash and Maritime. The ribbon is the Night of Navy Seam Binding and the tiny heart is punched out of Red Glimmer Paper with the Heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.
This perfect greeting is from the Lovely Amazing You stamp set and is stamped in Night of Navy ink. I used a Vintage Button and some Whisper White Baker's Twine for the 'stop' to make the card easel stand.
Scholars and Parents debate whether Autism is a Disability or whether it should be considered merely a different kind of personality.
