Today I'm up for another challenge with the Global Design Project #039. This week it's get well cards.
Sadly we do need get well cards from time to time. A hand made card is sure to lift someone's spirits. This is the card I made for the challenge.
I find that many times I when I need something like a get well card, I don't have one. I also seem to have very little time to create one. The card today started as a thank you card. I made it for a Clean & Simple class I had last week. Here's what it looked like before it went through it's make over this morning.
It was part of this class. Here's how I made it.
- Use a card base of Basic Black card stock cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4 and folded.
- The diagonal stripe patterned paper is from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack. I used a black sheet cut at 4 x 5 1/4.
- The Whisper White card stock layer is cut at 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.
- The flowers are from the Helping Me Grow set. They are stamped in Basic Black Archival ink. The little dots are also part of the set.
- The sentiment is from the Love & Affection set. I stamped it with the Basic Black Archival ink also on a scrap piece of white. I punched it out with the XL Oval punch. It's retired now. My Layering Ovals framelits are crossing the US as I type. Here's where part of the make over takes place. I had already stamped Much Appreciated. The new sentiment went right on top.
- I also decided to color in the flowers. I used Rich Razzleberry and my Aqua Painters. The stems were colored in Wild Wasabi.
- I stamped just a little piece of the flower on scrap, colored it, and cut it out. That went on the oval with the sentiment. I added a few of the black sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment. Adhere those with glue dots.
And here is the inside of the card. Once again, I colored the flowers. The sentiment inside is from the stamp set Thoughts & Prayers. I just used the bottom of the stamp. I stamped it with Basic Black Archival and then taped over the part I didn't want to stamp. Since this card was a make over, I stamped this on scrap paper again and adhered over the old words.
