Back on Your Feet Get Well Card

Hi Stampers!

I had great plans to post my Monday blog post early this morning.  However, this crazy Texas weather changed my plans!  I woke up this morning to 6.5 inches of snow, and frozen water pipes.  It is not slated to get above freezing here until Thursday!  So, needless to say we scooped snow into ice chests so we could melt it to have water for basic plumbing needs.  😒  I was not a huge fan of snow before; even less of one now!  

However, I did manage to get a few afternoon hours in my craft room and got a couple of cards done.  So, the whole day was not derailed.  I have a friend who recently had hand surgery and I felt like the little sloth from the Back on Your Feet stamp set really worked well for a get well card for her.  Here is a picture of the finished card:

I used Granny Apple Green for my card base, and Early Espresso for my mats.  I stamped him on a scrap of Basic White and used my Soft Suede blends to color in the little guy and cut him out with the layering Oval dies using my mini Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine (SCEM) and backed him an Early Espresso scallop oval.  On the card front I also used the free Sale-a-Bration Oh So Ombre DSP in Granny Apple Green.  I stamped two sentiments from the same stamp set in Early Espresso ink on scraps of Basic White and cut them out with two different dies from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that die set!  It is so versatile; a call it a must have die set.  I sponged the two sentiments with a Sponge Dauber in Early Espresso ink, then adhered all the elements to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I also used some of the clear Elegant Faceted Gems from the Peony suite on the card front.

For the card inside, I stamped an additional sentiment from the same stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a panel of Basic White.  I also adhered a scrap strip of the DSP to the left portion of the card.  I layered this panel on an Early Espresso mat and adhered to the card inside.  Some more DSP on the envelope flap and the card was done!

Hopefully it made her feel a bit better just knowing someone was thinking about her and sending healing thoughts.  Hopefully you like it too!  If you would like to replicate the card, my card stock cuts are below as well as a list of supplies used to make the card.  Let me know what you think.  

Happy Stamping!
