Pansy Patch, Hand-Penned Petals, Get Well Card, 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I'm sure you won't be surprised to read that I did not put away my "Pansy Patch" stamp set!  It was still sitting out so I thought I'd play with it again because yesterday it was fun and quick.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.  It's the same cut as yesterday. It's the other half of yesterday's card stock that I cut for that card. Yup, I left that sitting out too!  This card was cut at 4-1/4" on the 8-1/2" side and it measures 11" long and is folded at 5-1/2".

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and textured it using the "Ornate Floral" embossing folder.  I glued it to the front of the card, leaving a border equally all around.

Then I stamped the pansy from the "Pansy Patch" set using Balmy Blue ink. The beard of the flower was stamped using Night of Navy ink and the center was stamped using Mango Melody ink. I used a mask and then the leaves were stamped with Granny Apple Green for the solid part and Old Olive for the detailed image.

On yesterday's card I colored some highlights on the flower using a watercolor pencil. Today I didn't do that. my ink was a bit too dark so I left it as it was.

I die cut the flower image using the label looking one from the "Stitched So Sweetly" die set. I made sure I left room for the words.

The words are from the "Hand-Penned Petals" set and were stamped using Night of Navy ink. I masked off the word "Friend" under the "Feel Better" because I didn't want the word "friend" on it and there wasn't any room for it anyway.

Then I die cut a scalloped rectangle piece from the same die set and taped the floral piece to it. 

Dimensionals were added to the back of the rectangle piece. Before removing the backing on the Dimensionals I set it on top of the card to see where the Baker's Twine should go.

The Baker's Twine was colored using my dark Balmy Blue Blends pen. I should have used the light one because the twine looks a bit too dark. To color it I just set the pen on top of the twine and pulled the twine. I repeated this twice to get full coverage.  Then a glue dot was place under the area where the rectangle piece is going to go and the twine was looped in place, sticking it to the glue dot as I looped it.

The rectangle piece was set in place and the card was done.

This was another very quick and pretty card to make. I am SO loving that font.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see this sweet get well card,

The color of your pansy is OH SO PRETTY. And the addition of the Baker's Twine popping out is the perfect added touch.
