Be The Gold: Gold Embossed Poinsettia Holiday Card

Share This!

Be the Gold 3

Today’s post is dedicated to the Be The Gold Campaign for raising awareness for Childhood Cancer.  Here is an excerpt from the Be the Gold website:

“After much research, I came up with a goal; to make the gold as popular as pink has become for breast cancer. As it becomes more popular it will get more funding. More funding means more research, medical breakthroughs, improved treatments and a possible cure.”

What an amazing cause, right?  We all have precious children in our lives.  Imagine the day the shoe drops and you get the diagnosis – I pray this never happens in your life – but what if it does?  What a blessing it will be that the Gold Nametag is a recongnizable symbol for hope and a cure is on the horizon…or even found!

    Very nice card

    Thank you, Linda!
    Anne Marie, you can wipe it a bit to make sure the ink is off the Embossed Gold outline. The ink dries on the vellum and will not come off.
    hope that helps, thanks for being here! Catherine
