Sponsored in part by AdventHealth, our free Art of Healing outreach is offered to anyone in a medical situation, caregiver, healthcare worker, survivor or person in need of reflective time.

Cactus Cards

A VIRTUAL ART OF HEALING PROJECT

In helping others heal, we begin to heal ourselves. Please join us for this Virtual Art of Healing Workshop and create cactus-stamped greeting cards to brighten the day of a friend.

The cactus symbolizes survival, as it thrives in harsh conditions. Learn the simple techniques to create cactus stamps and how to make them grow into a beautiful, symbolic piece of art to share.

SUPPLIES:

  • scissors
  • ballpoint pen
  • water-based markers
  • blank white cards & envelopes
  • Styrofoam sheets (cut from an egg carton or take-out container will work)

This project is good for all skill levels! Just watch the video tutorial below to get your step-by-step instructions.
