Get Well Thoughts Card

Hello Stampers! Today I have a Get Well Card for you. I send a lot of these during cold and flu season. They are great to have on hand because you never know when someone needs a cheery note to feel better.

I was inspired by Connie Stewart to make this card. It’s amazing how a little stamped texture and strips of a different color can spark up an otherwise flat looking card. For the background texture I used color on color (Marina Mist Ink on Marina Mist Cardstock).

 

The card base is Marina Mist with a bit of So Saffron and Very Vanilla for the sentiment. The front panel is actually folded over and the So Saffron is tucked under the folded flap. Then another piece of So Saffron is added along the edge. 

Card Measurements:

Marina Mist – Base, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 1″ and 4 1/4″; scraps to punch out the flowers

So Saffron – 2″ x 5 1/2″ cut into two 1″ pieces

Very Vanilla – 2 1/2″ x 4″

Maybe you are wondering where I got the yellow rhinestones…I colored the clear rhinestones with a yellow Sharpie. I have a set of Sharpie colors to change up my rhinestones.

Those adorable little flowers are made from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. It is retired but if you’ve been using Stampin’ Up! products for a few years there’s a good chance you have this punch. If not, and you’d like the set…call or email me and I’ll see if I can still get you the set. Those Itty Bitty sets are so handy and I’ll never get rid of mine.

Ink – Crumb Cake, Marina Mist

Paper – Marina Mist, So Saffron, Very Vanilla

Accessories – Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write Marker, Yellow Sharpie, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (R)

 

 

This card should cheer up someone who isn’t feeling well, don’t you think?

Stay healthy and Happy Stamping!

Retro Sympathy Card

Hello Stampers!  Today I have another retro card for you. I am finding so many unfinished cards! 🙂

 

This is another short and sweet post. I used the same flip card as the Confirmation card on May 15. This shows how card bases can be changed. Love those little butterflies.

 

The sentiment comes from the lovely stamp set Thoughts and Prayers (which is being carried over into the new catalog!).

 

In my June classes we will be making Sympathy and Get Well Cards. They won’t be retro and I’ll be showing you those mid June.

So, I used retired DSP and the card die but the butterfly punch and die as well as the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set are all current.

Be sure to check in on June 2 for a really cool card. Hint: it’s a peek-a-boo card.

Until my next post…Happy Stamping!
