Whimsy Stamps ~ Autism Awareness

Hey crafty friends, I got a new die set the other day, which I bought for creating a card for my littlest who adores puzzles, but it came with a really fabulous printed sheet of sentiments in support of Autism Awareness month. Now I'm too late to share for that, as it's in the month of April, but I wanted to create with it regardless as I don't think there's ever a bad time to bring awareness to conditions which need love and understanding, so I thought I'd create this card with some of the gorgeous left over cardstock I had from our Cardstock Warehouse Collaboration. I had three sheets of blue cardstock which I realised were perfect to create for Autism Awareness, so set about cutting the panels with this fabulous new puzzle die.

I played around with where to place the different tones of blue and settled on this final version. I used a lovely Whimsy Frame Labels Die Set to matt the sentiment. As I mentioned above, the sentiment came with the die set and it was printed with Toner Ink, so can be foiled. So I pulled out my blue foil and though I can't find my Minc machine right now, but did manage to use heat from a little travel iron to transfer the foil, worked a treat! (Super frustrated not to find my Minc, since our move, fingers crossed it will turn up soon!) I added the puzzle pieces to a mini slimline card base and paired it with a Mini Slimline Envelope.

Thanks for popping in today. I hope you enjoyed seeing this creation and I'll be back again soon with another crafty adventure. I've been slow to post here as I've had lots of family stuff going on this month, but I'm slowly catching up. Be sure to check out our latest release at Whimsy, launching on the 15th. It's a good one! 

We have a wonderful celebration coming up for our lovely Whimsy founder Denise Lynn on the 16th too, so be sure to stop by and check that out in our Facebook Group. There's a great prize up for grabs for one lucky contributor, who shares a Whimsy birthday card they've created in the gallery along with our cards for Denise from the Design Team. So come check it out here.

(If you like any of the elements I've created with, I've added thumbnails to make your shopping easier. I do use affiliate links where possible, which gives me a tiny commission but costs you no extra whatsoever, though more importantly it helps the companies I design for to improve their marketing practice and track my contributions. I am deeply grateful if you use them for these reasons. I only design for companies whose products I absolutely love and buy for myself. My opinions are always my own.)

A beautiful card Wends - so glad you made this and gave it a good write up!
Not only does autism need loads of love from family, but also other neurodivergent conditions, especially when they cause easily distractible behaviours that make formal classroom learning incredibly difficult.
