Hand-Penned Get Well Card – #TTTC 197

Welcome back to our weekly Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  It’s my pleasure to host the challenge board this week and here’s what we have to play with….

If you’re still in the mood for love and Valentine’s Day, there’s a lot of elements to enjoy creating with on today’s board.  However, if you’re just about over this holiday, there’s still a lot of inspiration to be had for many other occasions.

I chose to go with a Get Well card today.  These, along with sympathy cards, are ones we generally don’t count on sending regularly and usually we need them right in the moment.  So I plan on making a few to keep on hand.

I chose to go two ways on the board:  (1) the first column down: CAS, Stencil, Flowers and (2) middle row across: Stencil, Pink, Heart.

Materials & Measurements

  • Card base is Blushing Bride cardstock: cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Basic White cardstock: cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ & 5″ x 3 3/4″ (inside panel), 5″ x 1/8″ strip (inside)
  • Blushing Bride cardstock: cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel) & 1/2″ x 5″ strip (inside)

Details

  • I tried something new (for me) to create the stenciled image.  I cut the intricate floral die from the Penned Flowers dies on thick cardstock to create a stencil.  
  • Using this, I stenciled the image on white cardstock twice.  One will be used on the front of the card and the other on the inside.
  • I punched the scalloped heart from the Heart Punch Pack on the bottom right of the Basic White panel.
  • Then I embossed it using a folder from my stash.
  • Before adhering the embossed panel to the card front, I glued a stenciled image under it to cover the heart cut out.  Then the embossed panel is adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card base.
  • The simple sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink.  I trimmed it and flagged the ends using a square punch.  I also did the same with a small strip of Blushing Bride cardstock and trimmed the flagged ends to white sentiment strip.
  • Lastly, I added a pearl to the flower center.

  • With the second stenciled image, I punched a scalloped heart and added it to the inside along with some cardstock strips.  
  • The sentiment is from the Cup of Tea stamp set.

  • Once I had all the stenciling done, I was left with a beautifully color blended die cut.  So not to waste it, I added it to the envelope front.  

I hope you’ll considering playing along with our challenge this week.  It really is very inspiring and fun to see the board elements come together.
