Get Well Soon…

 

 

Hello everyone, a Sunday night post is unusual for me as I’m usually lazing in front of the TV in my onesie for a couple of hours

…which I actually am, by the way haha!

*

I wanted to show you this card that I made as it’s a bit different from my usual style…

I get lots of inspiration from Pinterest and the blogs although I don’t usually copy or CASE cards. But, I saw the lovely Debbie Simpson make one of these on a Hobby House show on Create & Craft and I needed a get well card - I thought it would be perfect…

Sorry for all the pictures, it’s quite hard to show how it opens. I even had the same die tucked away in my stash that Debbie used for the outer frame(!)

I embossed the sentiments in silver and then added some to the edge of the frame and the flowers & twigs so it all matched

Here’s the recipe;

NitWits ‘Romance & Roses’ papers 

Tonic ‘Sew Pretty’ die

Spellbinders ‘Grand Decorative Circles One’

Stampers Anonymous ‘Simple Sayings’

Craft & You ‘Willow Twig’

Marianne flower dies

 

Hope you like it, I seem to spend most of my time doing DT cards or magazine work so it was really nice to spend a couple of hours just playing

Have a good week lovely crafty friends
