Painted Poppies, Get Well Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog

I thought I would put my 2020 Sale-a-Bration sets aside for a day or two and play with the "Painted Poppies" set.  I saw a fun card that I thought would be quick to make since my day was getting away from me.  This is a very quick and easy card to make.  You can see my inspiration for it here.  I just made it a regular card without the fancy opening.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Powder Pink.  Which I realized was the wrong color after I had stamped on the card. I couldn't figure out why the Petal Pink ink wasn't working for me.  The card stock should be Petal Pink.  I need to check the rest of my Petal Pink pack and see if there are more pieces in there that shouldn't be.  I need to pay better attention.

I stamped the fun splat image on the card stock using Petal Pink ink.  It will be much more subtle when you do it with the right color card stock.  

I cut a 4-1/2" x 2-3/4" piece of Flirty Flaming card stock for my layer.

I cut a 4-1/4" x 2-1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock to stamp my image from the "Painted Poppies" set.  I stamped them using black Memento ink.  I colored the flowers using both the dark and light Flirty Flamingo Blends pens.  First I colored all the flowers with the light one and then colored some with the dark.  

The words are from the "Back on Your Feet" set.  I set them up in my Stamparatus and stamped them using black Memento ink.  

I taped the two layers together and set them in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.

I found some Flirty Flamingo ribbon that is retired. I tied a knot and glued it in place on the corner of the Whisper White panel.  

I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock on the inside and the card was done.

This was a very quick and fun card to make.  I was in need of a get well card and this one is now ready for the mailbox tomorrow morning!

Thank you ever so much for visiting today,

Very pretty card! I love the idea of using that "splat" stamp to make a background on the card base! I'm going to use that idea!
