Get well wishes (finally)

This weeks fun-filled-Friday challenge was to make a get well card. This is what I came up with:

To make this card I colored in the image with Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits (I got this image from an image swap). Then I cut out the image and layered it on pink card stock. Next, I layered that on purple bling card stock but offset it a big. Next I punched out the wish using my Around the Block punch. I then used the circle nesties to cut out the punched wish and layer it. Then I cut my pattern paper to 4" x 5 1/4". Then I stamped part of my Get well sentiment on pink card stock and layered it on purple bling card stock a little offset to match my image. (The full sentiment was Get Well Soon, so I only inked up the Get Well part that I wanted) Finally I glued all my pieces on the A2 card base. Don't forget to check out Jen's Get Well card.

Supplies :
  • stamps : image - House Mouse by Stampabilities; sentiment - All Night Media "get well soon"
  • card stock : Bazzill, Bazzill Bling
  • paper : KI Memories - Posh Tilted
  • miscellaneous : punch - Around The Block Wish punch embosser; Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol, Versafine black ink, All Night Media purple ink.

***I am so happy to finally post this card! The whole no camera thing has been making me crazy, I have so much to share. And I think I have this camera pretty figured out after playing around with it all day. It's not so bad after all - minus the fact that it's pretty big. ***

So I know it's a bit late, but have you made a get well card lately? I would love to see it. Got any challenges for us for the New Year? Let me know what you would like to see on my blog.

Happy Crafting,

This is a cute card too! I love the matted wish & how you off-matted the Get Well part. Glad you got that camera figured out! I've missed your posts!
