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.

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.
