Fabulous Florets Get Well Card

Ok, it's one thing to make a card but another to remember to send it.  I have a friend who is having surgery and I had made her a get well card but have not popped it in the mail yet.  UGH!  I don't know why I can't just finish the jobs I start!!!  This isn't the card I made for her, though I wish it were, I really like this one!

I used the Fabulous Florets set to make this card.  And I used the Poppy Parade color for my card stock.  It is the base of my card. I took a full sheet and cut it in half and then folded that in half for the base of my card.  

Next I took a piece of Whisper White card stock and cut it to 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".  I used Wild Wasabi for the flower stem.  I stamped off once and then stamped on my card stock.  

The flower was done in the Poppy Parade and I did stamp off on that one too.  I used a piece of scrap card stock to stamp the flower and then I cut it out. I did try to just stamp directly on the stem but the green showed through too much and it didn't look nice at all.  After I cut it out I just taped it in place on the stem.

The words are from the "Sincere Salutations" set (which is NOT retiring!!! yipeee) and I used the Wild Wasabi straight on there, no stamping off to do this.  I wanted the words to be dark and easier to read.

After doing all that I taped the card front to the card base and it was done.  Clean, quick, simple, yet elegant!  I love those 4 features in a card!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
