Just Because + World Kindness Day

Just Because card with filigree embossing | Stampingville #papercrafts #StampinUp #cardmaking

World Kindness Day is tomorrow (Nov. 13th) and I think it would be awesome if all of the card-makers of the world created a handmade card to give to a random person they encounter during their daily activities. Who's up for the challenge?

In case you didn't know, World Kindness Day is a day devoted to the positive power of kindness. It is a day to overlook boundaries, gender, race and religion. It's a day to focus on being kind to others and highlight good deeds.

Kindness quote by Charlie Chaplin


Checking in over at RandomActsOfKindness.org, I was pleasantly surprised to find that one of the kindness ideas listed is "send a handmade card to someone". So whether you mail the card or give it in person, it's all about the act of kindness. Find more great ways to show kindness by visiting their website.

Okay, let's talk about today's card.  When I saw the Holiday Catalog, I knew I would use the Filigree Frame Embossing Folder for much more than holiday cards. In fact, this is the first card I've made with the folder and it has nothing to do with the holidays!

Stampin' details:
  • The embossed filigree design leaves plenty of room for adding images and/or greetings.
  • Several of the papers in the All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper collection coordinate beautifully with the Filigree Embossing Folder.
  • The Daydream Medallions stamp set is right at home nestled among the filigree embossing and patterned paper. The images are cut precisely every time with the coordinating Floral Frames Framelit Dies.
  • For glossy texture, the smaller medallion is heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
  • For a finishing touch, a small pearl is nestled in an Antique Brad. Ooh la la!
