Upsy Daisy Get Well Card

I think I may have to start putting my camera back on the tripod to get some better pictures!  This one is crooked and a bit fuzzy too.  But if you don't look too close you can't tell, can you?  Tilt your head a bit to the left and it straightens out some!!! LOL  Or just accept it the way it is and read on! 
This was a very fun card to make.  I just love the "Direct to Rubber" technique.  That is where you take your marker or whatever you want to color with and color directly onto the rubber.  My color of markers used here are More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Garden Green. That is the order I used them too!

After I colored the rubber I huffed on it 3 times.  I wanted the moisture from my breath to really get the image wet.  I could have misted it but I didn't want the image to run or bleed too much.

Next I took some colored ribbon (I colored this ribbon a while back using the Cajun Craze inker and white grosgrain ribbon) and I cut off a piece that was about 2 inches longer than the card.  I taped the ends on the back of the card.  Then I took some more ribbon and tied a know on the piece I just taped on.  I could have just laid the piece on for a reference point before I stamped the words but I opted to just go ahead and tape it in place.  

The words are from the "Sincere Salutations" set and I stamped them using Cajun Craze ink.  I taped that piece on top of a piece of Cajun Craze card stock and then taped those two layers on top of a half a sheet of Whisper White card stock that was folded in half.

The measurements for the top and second layer is as follows:
White piece:  5-1/4" x 4"
Cajun piece:  5-3/8" x 4-1/8"
and of course the half sheet of white card stock folded in half.

Simple as that! And pretty too!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,

Very pretty card. I have this stamp set, and have not used it much. I must get it out and try a card similar to this. Thanks for sharing another great idea with us.
