I recently learned that a former co-worker of mine has been diagnosed with breast cancer. I made this get well card featuring a sentiment from Perfect Pennants and the beautiful flowers from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper pack for her in an attempt to lift her spirits. It is never fun to have the occasion to make this type of card, but I hope that it will brighten her day a little to know that she is not alone and that I am sending good thoughts her way!
This card was pretty quick and very simple to create. I started with a Whisper White card base and layered on two different panels from Watercolor Wonder. I inked around the edges of the panels with Tangerine Tango ink to add a little definition to the layers.
Next, I stamped the leaf image from Summer Silhouettes three times in Old Olive on the yellow and orange watercolor wash design from the DSP pack. I cut out three flowers from a sheet of the rose design paper in the Watercolor Wonder pack and added them to the front of my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Finally, I stamped the “Sending Good Thoughts Your Way” greeting on to a piece of polka-dot DSP and cut it out using my banner framelits dies. I inked around the edges of the banner with Tangerine Tango ink.
I finished the inside of my card with the leaf motif and another rose from the Watercolor Wonder DSP.
I hope that this card is able to lift my friend’s spirits. If you are a fan of this card, please pin this project to Pinterest and leave me a comment.
