Darling Details, Get Well Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a get well card to share with you. I have a list of cards to make and get out in the mail and I'm late in doing that. SO much going on this time of the year with getting ready for craft fairs and canning/freezing vegetables for the winter. I'm looking forward to December when things really get stirred up!  I am thinking that December will be calmer but there's Christmas.  But I really am looking forward to December with all the hustle and bustle that it brings. And if I get my Christmas cards done by the end of November I will step into December with a smile on my face! So onto how I made today's get well card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut two 4" x 5-1/4" pieces of Basic White card stock. One for the top and one under it. I cut 2" off one piece. I textured the larger piece using the "Distressed" embossing folder. I glued it to the other piece of Basic White card stock. Then I glued the 2" piece in place too. 

The words piece is from the "Wanted to Say" die set. I die cut the words in Flirty Flamingo using a double-sided sticky sheet. And the layer behind it was die cut using Basic Black ink. I affixed the words to the Basic Black piece and I set it in place on the left of the card.

Next I stamped the large flower using Crushed Curry ink for the outline part and Daffodil Delight for the solid part. The leaves were stamped using Garden Green ink for both the veins of the leaves and the leaves. These are from the "Darling Details" bundle. I die cut the flowers and leaves. I cut one leaf off the grouping of three. And the smaller flower was stamped using Flirty Flamingo ink for both the outline and the solid part. After all of the pieces were die cut I added them to the lower right of the card. I added the little flower first. Then the upper leaves were added and then the smaller one. The large flower was added using Dimensionals and it was set in place on top of the leaves. I covered a very little bit of the little flower with the large flower.

I took a piece of Flirty Flamingo ribbon (retired) and I taped the ends to the back of the Basic White piece. Then the whole piece was set in place on the card base and the card was done.

I think it turned out well. I find this set a little bit difficult to make. I think I just need to play with it more. Now to write inside and get it out in the mail in the morning. And onto the next one on my list that I need to get out in the mail!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's get well card,
