Did you know May is “Mental Health Awareness” month? It has been such a change from just a couple of years ago, where talking about mental health issues and struggles was not encouraged or rather something to be ashamed of. Although, we still have a lot of work to do to continue on this path, I wanted to celebrate the strides we have made.
I wanted to make a few card projects to help shine the light on this issue, as that is my (art) therapy. Today I am sharing 3 projects keeping this theme in mind. I’ve used supplies from the craft kit called Soul Care by Mandy Ford.
Project 1: Self-care
Self care looks different and yet, personal to each and every one of us. Whether it be removing time to journal, or burning your special candle or just relaxing and listening to your favorite tunes, it can absolutely be anything. That is what this card is about.
Project 2: Attract Positive Energy
This kit also comes with a beautiful stamp set. I’ve stamped this gem stamp over and over using a gold embossing powder. I used these pre-cut images from the kit and the sentiment sticker as well. The washi tape border is from Karmabee called Gratitude.
Project 3: Soul Care Questions
This is a tag that asks you questions under each flap. I felt this tag is a perfect project to keep on your desk and to look at the questions when you are doubting yourself or feeling stressed out. It helps me align with myself when I “talk” to myself with the questions and help me feel grounded.
I hope you liked the projects. Its been a while since I’ve actually seen a card kit perfectly showcase self care in such a beautiful way. There are so many projects that you can make and it’s also ideal if you are on a mental health journey and want to scrapbook your progress.
