Get Well Soon card

Hello again!  It’s been such a harsh winter across the United States and that means lots of illnesses so I made this Get Well card that was inspired by Gina Krupsky from Gina K. Designs.  Here is a link to her card as well as a video.  http://stamptv.ning.com/video/journey-of-the-heart-stv-kit-and-card-project?xg_source=msg_mes_network

This is my version of her card.

Get Well Soon

Supplies:

  • Stamps:   Love and Sympathy, Delightful Dozen
  • Cardstock:  Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
  • DSP:  First Edition Specialty from Stampin’ Up (retired)
  • Ink:  Early Espresso
  • Ribbon, Large oval punch, Scallop Oval punch
  • Adhesive, dimensionals, glue dots
  • Sponge dauber

Measurements: 

  • Early Espresso card base – 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ and folded in half.
  • Very Vanilla layer – 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
  • DSP – 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Larger focal Very Vanilla layer – 4 1/4″ x 3″
  • Early Espresso – 3 5/8″ x 2 3/8″
  • Very Vanilla focal image layer 3 1/2″ x 2 1/4″

Assembling the card:

  1. Use the Early Espresso ink  and sponge it all over the DSP.   Attach this to the Very Vanilla layer.  Then attach to card front.
  2. Next attach the larger focal Very Vanilla to the DSP layer, centered.
  3. Stamp the flower image on the smaller layer of Very Vanilla cardstock and then layer onto the Early Espresso.
  4. Cut two pieces of ribbon about 2 inches in length and fold in half. I used a glue dot to hold them together.
  5. Attach these to the top panel as shown.   I also used glue dots here to adhere the ribbon loops to the panel.
  6. Using dimensionals, attach this panel to the card as shown.
  7. Stamp Get Well Soon sentiment on a small piece of Very Vanilla and punch out using the Large Oval punch.  Sponge around the edges with Early Espresso ink.
  8. Punch a piece of Early Espresso using the Scallop Oval punch and layer the Large Oval punched piece onto it.  Adhere to card as shown.
  9. On the inside of the card I used a piece of Very Vanilla 4″ x 5 1/4″ and left it blank to write a note later.

I hope you will give this card a try. This design can be used for almost any occasion by changing out the image and the sentiment.  Thanks for stopping by!
