Flower Fusion Get Well Card

It's not just a "Get Well" card, this layout and design can be used for other occasions too such as birthdays, friendship, thinking of you and a just for fun card as well.

Unfortunately I needed to make a "Get Well" card for a friend who had knee surgery on Tuesday. It's Thursday night and I'm a bit late with the card. My plan on Sunday was to make the card and have it in the mail so it would be at her home on the day of the surgery. Not that she'd be getting it that day but when family came home and got the mail they would be bringing it to her the next day. This was my plan for the card. Perhaps the family has the cards in a big pile waiting for her to come home and see them!!! Either way, my card is not there! Yet!

A while back I had made a card at a Shoebox Swap that had the quail on it from the Stampin' Up! "Happy Together" set and I liked the layout. I liked the whole card but I wanted to make something cheery. I looked through my stamps to see what looked like it would cheer some one up but didn't find anything I wanted to play with. As I was looking in my cupboard I saw the felt "Flower Fusion" tin and took it out. I opened it up and knew immediately what I wanted to do with them. And here you have it! I just put a few flowers together with brads. Then I cut up a green flower to use as leaves. I think it turned out bright and cheery. I will get it in the mail tomorrow and it will cheer her up!

The colors I used here are More Mustard and Naturals Ivory card stock. Yup, just the two colors! Simple, quick and easy! Gotta LOVE that!

The works at the bottom were done using the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set and the "Word Window" punch. The layer behind it was created using the new "Scallop Trim" border punch. I just cut off a slice from it for the words to fit into. Cute, huh?

To make the other scallop part of the card I used the Sizzix "Scallop Square" die cut. The card stock was folded before it was cut in the die. This allows that part of the card to open wider than to just put the card stock in the die and cut it as is. Thanks Denise for the cute layout. And I hope you recover quickly Peggy!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

This card is so pretty, but you should see it in person! I saw Peggy's card today. It is way past beautiful........... I wish that I had some of those flowers to copy yours somewhat! I wasn't real impressed with the flowers, way back when I saw them....I am impressed now! Oh well, I can't find a place for everything either! LOL.
