Get Well Soon

Today’s card is a replica from a card I made a card back in August.  The only changes I made to the card was I used the banner effect on the sentiment piece instead of pearls and I used designer paper instead of stamps for the matting under the sentiment.  Again, this card presents the opportunity to use a variety of images or designer paper, embossing folders and sentiments.  This is a good way to use up scraps of designer paper.

Get Well x 2

I wanted to make a get well card for one of my co-workers who is off work battling the big C.   She is such a great person and we really miss her at work – she is one of our great team of IT people.  This is another take on the card I made a few days ago seen  here

I decided to use that same sketch and make a get well card.  As I had made this card before, I knew what I wanted to change.  I used ribbon instead of felt and this time I tried a little bling instead of punched flowers.  I used DP designed by Jen Wilson for My Mind’s Eye – truly love this 2 sided paper.


I needed to send out another get well card in the mail immediately – so, as I had all the dimensions still handy I made another card using the same materials, except that I used the flower punch instead of the bling.   I prefer the bling a little better, but maybe if I had a little more time I should have added some bling to the center of the punched flower and that would probably have worked.
