When you’re not feeling well bright and cheery is the answer. I combined the Sale-a-bration Patterned Occasions stamp set with the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper to create this upbeat get well card.
I love to use the colors in a pack of designer series paper to inspire my creating, but you can also experiment with colors outside the paper pack’s color palette. Here I combined the striped Tangerine Tango paper with Melon Mambo cardstock for a fresh new color combo.
My sketch inspiration is from Friday’s CAS Sketch Challenge. You can see more and play along here. I kept this card super simple by following the sketch and adding simple interest with bright colors, a layered banner flag and a popped-up heart. The heart was stamped from the Hearts-a-Flutter stamp set and punched with the Small Heart punch.
This card is also made with paper from the Sale-a-bration Sycamore Street pack and the Patterned Occasions stamp set. Again I chose a coordinating color outside of the colors used in the pack. In this case, I used the Pool Party patterned paper with a softer pink, Primrose Petals.
The scallop circle here is the mid-size doily from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlets Die from page 191 in the catalog. When the catalog was printed the numbers got reversed and the largest die was listed as 1-3/8″ in diameter which is much smaller than what I wanted. When I found out the correct dimensions were 3-1/8″ for the largest doily I ordered the die immediately! As you can see here the mid-size doily layers perfectly with the 1-3/4″ circle punch.
Again, I used Friday’s sketch for inspiration, changed the orientation to landscape, tied the Primrose Petals stitched ribbon across the card and added a bitty flower from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack with a Rhinestone.
