Quick and Simple Get Well Card

One of my all time favorite word sets has been the Stampin' Up! "Sincere Salutations." I have always loved the font and the choice of words in the set. They seem to cover the occasions I needed them to. Plus they actually look like they belong on a card. Hard to explain what I mean there. They just look like a greeting card font!

This card is very simple to make. I just took a half sheet of white card stock and cut it at 4-1/4" on the short side. I folded it in half.

The Melon Mambo piece was cut at 4-1/8" x 3" and the center white piece was cut 4" x 2-7/8"

I stamped 4 flowers from the "Vintage Vogue" set and cut them out. I am SO loving that set too!

I used my piercing tool and poked a hole in the center and added a brad. Behind the flower is a Dimensional. I like to use these when a brad is used. It's sticky enough to hold the brad to the paper and card. If a Dimensional is not appropriate then I will use the Stick Strip tape but just a little piece, that stuff is VERY sticky and when you put it down you'd better be sure where you want it to be because there is no going back with that stuff!

On the center of the layer I added a piece of Melon Mambo Polka Dot ribbon. Below that is where I stamped the words using Melon Mambo ink.

This layout is very simple to work with and you can use it for many occasions. This would make a wonderful thank you card, birthday card, thinking of you card and even a pretty Mother's Day card.

I have a fun project coming up this week using this layout so stay tuned!

Such a simple card and a VERY quick one too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I saw this card on Pinterest. It inspired me to make a get well card for a friend who is having an operation today. My ribbon was much larger and printed so my card didn't end up looking like your card was the inspiration, but it was. Thanks I love the colors and the simple design.
