A Cheery Get Well

One of my friends has been in hospital recently.  This is my first Get Well card and I was pretty chuffed at how this turned out.  It is not my own design.  I did find something very similar on Pinterest.  I just loved the rainbow colours and it was a bit different to what I normally do.

I used a few different punches here.  The four petal flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes pack and the Boho Blossom Punch.   Layering some of the flowers is the key to making this look really good.  Lots of glueing and very fiddly but worth the effort I think.  To make the flowers curve up I put them on a bit of hard foam and used the end of my Piercing tool to rub the centre of each flower.  This helps the petals to curl up and look more lifelike.

Ok, the colours I used are in order from left to right - So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Raspberry Ripple, Real Red, Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz, Marina Mist and Pool Party.  The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen and fits in so well in that little space.  Can you see the specks of Blue made with the Gorgeous Grunge splatters again LOL.  The base card is  Crumb Cake then a layer of Night of Navy then the good old Whisper White.

Inside I stamped some stripes of colour to match the flowers on the front working from left to right and overlapping the colours as I went.

 I used the stripes stamp from (you guessed it) Gorgeous Grunge and I loved how they turned out.  Not too thick but thick enough to give the rainbow colour effect.

A very Cheery Card.
