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

Don't you just love the Pale Papaya color?  It's one of my favorite in-colors.  When I saw this card on Pinterest I was drawn to the color and I just had to make one. You can see the original card here

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I did fold mine in half and then I cut off 1" off the front. 

I cut a 5-1/4" x 1" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Hand-Penned" 12" x 12" package. 

I cut a 3" x 5-1/4" piece of Pale Papaya card stock and I textured it using the "Ornate Floral" embossing folder. I didn't have the same one used on the original card but this one worked, it has flowers and they seem to fit with the stamped image.

The flower on the front is from the "Hand-Penned Petals" set and was stamped using black Memento ink on Basic White card stock. I die cut the piece out using the matching die. 

I stamped the solid part of the flower using Pale Papaya ink. Then I used the light Pumpkin Pie Blends Pen to color the darker areas of the flowers. The center of the small flower was colored in using the dark Daffodil Delight Blends Pen. I added a little bit of Wink of Stella to the center of that flower. I used my light and dark Mint Macaron Blends Pens for the leaves and stems.

I loved how the stitched circle looked so I die cut one to use on my card. It is retired but I like the looks of it so I went with it. If you don't have the stitched circle you can die cut a circle that measures around 2-7/8".  It can be a little larger or smaller, it will work.

The Circle was placed in my Stamparatus and the words from the "Hand-Penned Petals" set were stamped using black Memento ink. The smarter way to do this would be to stamp the words first and then die cut. It makes it SO much easier!! Once the circle was cut, I glued the flower in place.

Then the circle was set on top of the card where I thought it should go and I held it place while I drew a light pencil line on the back so I knew not to add Dimensionals there. After all, I do want the card to open, right?

Once the Dimensionals were added I erased that pencil line. I hope by now you've gone to your local craft or art supply store and picked up a kneadable eraser. I think you can get them on Amazon but they are very expensive there.  They are the best for removing pencil/graphite without leaving any marks on your paper. It won't remove any paper and there is no eraser stubble either but I still wipe my hand across it like there is. Old habits die hard!  You won't regret getting one. The only time there is a mark is if you write/draw too hard and leave an indention on your paper.  Anyway, I highly recommend you get one. After erasing my pencil line I added the circle to the front of the card and the card was done.

This was such a fun card to make. It doesn't take long to make either. And this is such a nice layout. I like the strip on the inside, it adds a lot to the front and to the inside at the same time.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see this fun layout and easy card,
