I Don't Like It!

I LOVE making cards but I don't like it when I need to make a get well card or a especially a sympathy card. Not that I can't make them. It's just that I find them difficult to do because of the occasion.

I needed yet another get well card. I still had a piece of double sided card stock from the new "Afternoon Tea" collection. It's such pretty paper. I have a feeling I'll be buying a LOT more of that paper!!! Then I can design some cards using the other side of the paper!!! I seem to find that I like one side of the papers a lot better than the other but in this case I like them all.

For this card I used the tea cup with flowers from the Stampin' Up! set "Fun & Fast Notes." At first I didn't think this paper would go with my coloring but it did.

This was a "fun and fast" card to put together too.

For my layers I cut a half sheet of card stock and folded it in half. I added some Chocolate Chip that measured 5-3/8" x 4-1/8." On top of that I added the decorative paper measuring 5-/4" x 4" I tied the ribbon before I affixed the Chocolate Chip piece to the vanilla card.

The top layers are as follows
Image is 2" x 2-1/4"
Groovy Guava piece is 2-1/8" x 2-3/8"
Chocolate Chip piece is 2-1/4" x 2-1/2"
Green Decorative paper is 2-3/4" x 2-1/2"
Chocolate Chip layer is 3" x 2-3/4"

The image was stamped on watercolor paper and colored in with markers and a blender pen.

I like this layout because it keeps your eye focused on the image and best of all it's simple and quick to do!!!

All products on this card are Stampin' Up! materials. Click here to find more cards and projects that are made entirely of Stampin' Up! materials.

I'm with you on not liking to make get well or sympathy cards because of the occasion. I make a lot of them ahead and so when the need arises I don't need to THINK about making a card. They are a lot easier to make when you can be grateful everyone you know is alive and well.

Yep, some cards are definately harder to make than others. But those are the ones we put the most love into. I think your get well card is just lovely.

Perfect little card to make someone feel better. I love this paper pack too. Have already used several pieces in the pack.

Yes..I find the sympathy card the most difficult.
