Back on Your Feet, Beauty Abounds, Get Well Card

Today I thought I would play with the "Back on your Feet" set.  I love this guy the most in the set.  I usually color him in Old Olive but today I used Mossy Meadow.  Not a big fan of it on him!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  I did fold it in half before I cut off 1" on the right edge on the front.

I taped a 1-1/4" piece of Designer Series paper from the "Magnolia Lane" set on the inside right edge.

I stamped the turtle using black Memento ink on Whisper White Card stock. I die cut him using the largest Stitched oval die.  I also die cut a Mossy Meadow scalloped oval. 

I colored the turtle using the light Mossy Meadow Blends pen. I colored the belly using light Daffodil Delight Blends Pen and I added a little highlights using the dark Daffodil Delight Blends Pen.  I thought there was too much dark on the turtle, so I decided to go grab my Old Olive Blends pens and color the shell with the light one and the highlights with the dark one. I colored the space between the squares on the shell with the light Soft Suede Blends pen and I also used it on the bottom of the feet.

The words are from the "Back on your Feet" set. I stamped them using Mossy Meadow ink.  I did set the oval up in my Stamparatus so I could get the words exactly where I wanted them and to make sure I got them dark enough too. I did have to stamp them twice to get the color I wanted.  That's what is great about the Stamparatus, you can stamp over and over again until you get the look you want and it will stamp in the same spot every time.  

I stamped the "bubbles" from the "Beauty Abounds" set using Mossy Meadow ink and Daffodil Delight ink. 

I taped the oval layers together and I set the oval in place using Dimensionals. Be careful not to get the Dimensionals on the right edge or it will seal your card shut!

This was a fun card to make but I think I'm going to stick to Old Olive for my turtle in the future!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

This is a cute card. It seems I need to send get well cards frequently. This stamp set has several options that make great cards to cheer the recipients. Happy New Year!
