Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a super sweet “get well soon” card! No matter if someone is feeling “down and out” or “down for the count”, what better way to perk them up than a bright and colorful card! Speaking of color, do you ever wonder about different color combinations and how to figure them out? Head to Pinterest! That’s how I decided on the colors I used today. I started out with Coastal Cabana and I wanted to use colors that I could also use for the flower from Humming Along, so I chose to use Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, and Granny Apple Green with Copper Foil for a little bling!
I first started with the flower on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamped in Smoky Slate ink with my Stamparatus:
The flower is colored in with Light and Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends, the stem and leaf and colored with Light and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends, and the stamen is colored in with Light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends:
This is then heat embossed with copper powder and cut out with the coordinating framelit:
The base layer is Mango Melody cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:
The next layer is this design in Coastal Cabana from the Brights 6” x 6” DSP, cut at 3” x 5 ¼” and then two strips of Copper Foil, cut at ¾” x 5 ¼”:
First adhere the Copper Foil strips to the back of the Coastal Cabana DSP (use your grid paper to help line them up) and then adhere to the Mango Melody cardstock:
For the rest of the card front, you will need to cut out flower, a piece of Whisper White Tulle Ribbon tied into a bow, and the sentiment from Florentine Filigree stamp set is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut out with the smaller layering framelit from Lily Framelits Dies, and then cut out a piece of Mango Melody cardstock with the larger layering framelit:
Adhere the flower on the DSP, adhere the bow with a glue dot, and then adhere the layering cardstock pieces together, then adhere to the card front with dimensionals. This is then adhered to a Thick Whisper White cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼”x 11” and scored at 5 ½”:
The inside sentiment is from Humming Along in Coastal Cabana ink and adhere a ¾” strip of the DSP along the bottom, trimming off the excess:
