Better Get Better

Today I have a get well card to share.  I haven’t had to make one of these in a while but this one is going to someone very special who has been under the weather for a little while now.

I also took this opportunity to play along with Can You Case It color challenge #109.

CYCI109-300x230

My colors are Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Tempting Turquoise.  I cannot remember the last time I made something with Tempting Turquoise, so this was a nice combination to work with.

There is a lot of texture and dimension in this card.  Firstly, the card size is 5 x 5 square.  The embossing folder is not SU, it is just a random folder I have but really fit the bill for this card.  Due to the size of the card, I could not emboss the whole card because the folder was not big enough.  So to improvise, I left a small portion of the bottom smooth.  The sentiment, from the A Dozen Thoughts stamp set fits perfectly in this area.  I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

I also tried something new with this card.  After cutting the teapot with the Cups & Kettle framelits with DSP (retired), I cut it again with Fun Foam and mounted the two together.  It really gives the teapot a lift.  I also cut some little hearts with Fun Foam from the Mini Treat Bag thinlits to look like they are coming from the pot.

Just a little note inside.  The envelope was made with the Envelope Punch Board and embellished on the flap.

I think this card would make someone feel a little better, at least while opening and reading it.

All the products I used are listed below.

Thanks for looking in today.  Please come back soon.
