Get Well Soon!

The sentiment "Get well soon!" is for everyone in my household.  We have been sick with head colds that continue to linger after two weeks.  And I had three days for jury duty this week as well.  I feel like I haven't been in my craft space like forever and really wanted to stamp today.  I did manage to complete one card for the Freshly Made Sketches #24 based on the sketch below.

To make this card:

I used A2 white card for my base.  I trimmed the red w/ white polka dot patterned paper to 5-1/4" x 4" and another pieced to 1-1/2" x 4-1/4".  I trimmed the red, white and blue patterned paper to 5" x 3-3/4".  I also trimmed blue cardstock to 1-3/4" x 4-1/4".  I used a piece of paper doily for the bottom edge.


Elegant Edges - page 33 <Doily> oblong frame cut on blue cardstock at 4" and shadow feature on white cardstock.   I run the frame piece through my Cuttlebug with the swiss dot folder.  Stamp the sentiment in the center.  I used a stamp from Fiskars with red ink.

To complete the card:

Layer all paper as shown in the photo, working back to front.  My finishing touches are red buttons with knotted floss, a blue crocheted flower and a bow made with bakers twine.

Catch the Frenzy!
