Just when you think it’s safe to say “spring has sprung” another cold front comes through. Granted, where I live, deep in the piney woods of east Texas our cold front is spring to a lot of you, but it’s still not quite time to put away all the winter clothes. I guess that’s the reason all the spring paper challenges have got my creative juices flowing again. I’m ready for some sunshine.
I wanted to make a cheery Get Well card for some dear friends of mine that are on the mend after long bouts of illness and mishap so I combined that with several great challenges going on.
|I used Everyday PopUp Cricut cartridge to make this colorful card.|
I love how the flowers really stand out when you open the card. I used cardstock on the flower stems, but I still had to go back and glue and tape some wire to the stems of my flowers keep them standing up.
|I added some grass for even more dimension.|
I cut the card, the popup flower box, and flower stems at a height of 5.24 using my Gypsy. The flower heads had to be scaled down to 3.08 so they would fit the stems. The sun is from Gypsy Wanderings. I also cut a circle from there for the center of my sun.
|The butterfly is an embellishment from my stash|
I’ve been looking for some nice Get Well and Sympathy sentiments that aren’t run of the mill. I found just what I was looking for in the “From the Inside Out” stamp set by Scrappy Moms. My order just came in and I love the sentiments and font styles in this stamp set.
I am going to enter the following challenges. Stop by and check out all the creativity.
