Cards- Get Well

Helping Me Grow Get Well and #GDP039

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.

Helping Me Grow

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.  

June 2016 clean


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.

Helping Me Grow inside

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.
