Monochrome Charity Gift Cards - Stamping With Friends Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

This week I have been making cute little gift cards for a charity. I belong to a local Knit and Natter group who are making little knitted and crocheted flowers to gift to new Mums at the local Special Care Baby Unit on Mothers Day this year. We make lots of things throughout the year, usually to raise money for local charities but we also gift many baby hats and blankets to the local Maternity Units too. I’ve lost my knitting mojo lately so I said that I would make the gift cards to go with our flowers so I feel like I’m still doing my bit. Let me show you how I made them.


1 piece of card stock 3” x 6”, scrap of card for heart
1 piece of dsp 2 7/8” square
Scrap of basic white for hearts
Matching ink
Flowing Flowers stamp set
Dressed to Impress stamp set
Memento black ink
Hearts Punch Pack
Multipurpose adhesive
Simply scored
Bone folder
Hole punch
Scrap of matching ribbon or twine


On the long side score the card at 3” and fold and burnish.

Adhere the dsp to the card front.

Punch out one scalloped heart to match the card base and two straight sided hearts in basic white.

Using ink to match the card base, stamp the small group of flowers on one of the white hearts.

Stamp the sentiment in black over the top as shown in the picture.

Adhere this stamped heart to the scalloped heart and add to the card front. Adhere the remaining heart on the inside of the card to write the message.

Punch a hole in the top corner of the inside of the card and thread through some ribbon or twine to attach to the flower.

As you can see I’ve made lots of these and these are the flowers that my friends are making.
