Today I'm making a card to send a friend who will be having her tonsils removed at a ripe old age of 40-something! Most Get Well cards tend to be reserved, with some bordering on "With Sympathy"... not something I'd like to receive from anyone. I make mine loud and cheerful. And so, against this week's Mojo backdrop, I came up with this cheery little number ...complete with flowers that will not wilt!
|The red CS for the card base is by Bazill. The background paper is from Basic Grey's "Picadilly" pack. The yellow and green panels come from WRMK's "Travel Light" pack. I stitched all the panels.|
|I cut the dotted circles with Nellie Snellens's Flower die (MFD020). I adhered the mulberry paper rosed with some glue gots. I wanted some "sunshine" on this card, hence the yellow panel and roses. The greeting is from Papermania's "Sentiments" set.|
|I punched the lacy edge for the green panel with X-Cut's Leafy Lace Decorative Border Punch. And to finish, some aqua organdy ribbon and bow.|
|As always, I hoisted everything up on foam tape!|
|On the inside, a strip of roses from Basic Grey. Coloured card bases are great, but the inside has to be lined with some white...a little extra work, but well worth it.|
