A Very Special Get Well


A Get Well card for a very special lady!

I have been absent for awhile it seems. Today I needed a "Get Well" card for my sweet Mother-in-law who is in the hospital. The stamping community is so awesome please keep her and her husband of 50 some years in your prayers.

I created this card for a challenge at Paper Craft Planet called Tuesday Trigger Time. What inspired me from this picture were the bold colors against the black and for some reason the gray textured lines on the white hibiscus stood out to me.

I created this easel card using Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, and Going Gray card stocks. I used all punches to create the flowers. The large flower is the Fancy Flower Extra-large, the medium flower is part of the Boho Blossom punch and the small flower is one of the Itty Bitty Shapes punches. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (as you have heard me say before,I love this set) and punched out with one of the Boho Blossom flowers.

The easel base has a piece of Going Gray card stock which was run through the Crimper and edged with the Scallop Edge punch. I tied a piece of the Daffodil Delight 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon. This is really beautiful ribbon and I love the color!

Hope you enjoyed today's project. Thanks for stopping by.

God Bless,
