Ok, today's card is for my sister. I think I am safe in posting it now, cuz as I type she is getting ready to go into surgery to have her Gal bladder out. And probably won't be reading this for a day or two and by then I will have given it to her. I know this isn't a "surgery" type of get well card, but it is a new stamp I just got from Alota Rubber Stamps, and I really was wanting to ink it up, and she will get a kick out of it.
Isn't it just the cutest image for a get well card, I made sure to get the challenge of three embellishments in so it qualifies for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge this week. I stamped out the image and colored in with Copics, and white gel pen. And you can't see it in the photo but I used the clear Sakura Glaze Pen to do the thermometer, and it really shines in real life.
The floral patten paper is from Cosmo Cricket, I punched the edge with my new Fiskars Leave it to Weaver border punch and ran a scrap piece of red ribbon thru it, 1st embellishment. (yep that is where that darn glue dot is underneath). I sewed the edges... lots of time and screaming later. I attached it to the yellow base. Now the corner was pretty messed up from the sewing machine, but I was determined to save this card. So 2nd embellishment I colored in two chipboard corners from my stash with the same green as the chair and hid the big boo boo.
I then stamped the sentiment, also by Alota Rubber Stamps, and then matted with a brown piece of card stock that I stamped with my wood background stamp. It has the look of a frame, so I hung it! I glued down a red cord and then used a Colorbox Metal Adhesive dot for the "nail", the 3rd embellishment. I love this image, I got a few other with my order but do think I will need more as they are just too much fun to color in and give details to.
Well I had better run... want to check on my sister and get a couple of errands done!
Have a Great Friday!
