Feel Better Soon

April 27, 2014

I had occasion to send a card to a friend recovering from an operation recently and thought that you might like to see it.  The flowers were inspired by some I saw on a card on Pinterest by Cheryl Garratt.  If you visit her blog she has some great instructions for making your flowers have more dimension.

142I started by stamping the greeting from the Express Yourself stamp set onto Whisper White card using Island Indigo ink and then I embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I attached the embossed card to the bottom of Soft Sky card.  I cut Whisper White card using the Paper Doily Sizzlits Large and then cut the Doily in half and attached to the centre of the Soft Sky card.  I wrapped this piece with Crumb Cake 1/2″ Tafetta Ribbon and tied a bow before attaching to scored and folded Crumb Cake card. 143 I stamped the flowers from the Stippled Blossoms stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Soft Sky/Marina Mist ink, Soft Sky/Island Indigo ink and cut them out.  The leaves are stamped onto scrap Whisper White card using Pear Pizzazz and Gumball Green ink and then cut out.  I added some dimension to the flowers and leaves as per Cheryl’s instructions.  The flowers and leaves are attached using Glue Dots.  I also added a Basic Pearl to the centre of each of the flowers.

144Inside the card I embossed the lower portion of Whisper White card and wrapped it with Crumb Cake 1/2″ Tafetta Ribbon.  I added another flower and a couple of leaves to complete the decoration.

I hope that my friend loves her card as much as I do.

Bye for now,
