Get Well Wishes

My sister's mother-in-law had surgery today and I made her a get well card.

I just LOVE this card layout. You cut your sheet of Bashful Blue card stock at 4-1/4" and fold it in half. I then rolled on the flowers using the Stampin' Up! "Fast Flowers" wheel and Bashful Blue ink. The flower pot is from the "Fun & Fast Notes." I thought it was a cute little cheery design. I stamped the image on watercolor paper using black StazOn. I colored in the flowers with a blender pen and markers. In the photo the yellow around the flowers looks more orange. I used Apricot Appeal and it really isn't that bright. I need to start taking my photos in regular day light. Maybe I'll retake the photo tomorrow and show you the difference.

For the Certainly Celery piece I cut the card stock 2-1/2" x 4-1/4". The Barely Banana piece is cut 2-1/4" x 2-1/2". The watercolor paper was cut 2" x 2-1/4". I layered the colors lining them up at the bottom and sided. Fold the top of the Certainly Celery card stock over at the 1" mark. I located center an eyelet at 1/4" in from each edge. I tied some black gingham ribbon on and the card is ready to be attached to the front. I eyed up the top and bottom of the card and moved the layered piece out a bit so it overlapped the white area. It's up to you how much you want it to overlap. Mark it lightly on the back, turn it over and add tape and set it in place on top of the blue. For the inside I cut a piece of white card stock 4" x 5-1/4". I did add a flower in the corner from the wheel. It took a bit of masking to accomplish it but I managed with only a little blue dot at about the 11 o'clock mark on the flower. I tried to remove it with a blender pen but it didn't work. Now had that background been watercolor paper the blender pen would have erase that blue dot!! I taped the white on the inside and the card is ready to go!!!

I have a fun Valentine's Day gift project coming up for you so stay tuned!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,

I really like the little pot of flowers, but...
I don't understand the layout.

Why do you want to leave so much white showing? Do you write in that exposed white area, or under the folded blue area?

Thanks :)
