Sending Flowers & Get Well Wishes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

One thing that cheers me up is stamping or getting hand stamped cards, so as I was a bit under the weather … I created a “Get Well” card!  That darn flu bug has hit many of you too, so I hope my card brings a smile to your face.

I began with the beautiful “Watercolor Wonder” Designer Series Paper… don’t you just love these flowers!  I chose the green/blue flowers this time and used the Island Indigo card stock for the base of the card.


I cut the designer paper ( 4′ x 5-1/4″) for the front of the card, then I used the left over piece to cut the liner for my envelope.  I used the Envelope Liner Thinlet Die…which is now on sale!  I set the scrap piece aside because I will be using it later.

My “Get Well” greeting comes from the “Perfectly Penned” stamp set.  This is one of those stamp sets that when I first saw it, I just had to have it.  The font is so unique and fun … and who doesn’t want to be “cheered up” when they aren’t feeling well.

My greeting is stamped in Island Indigo ink and was cut out using the smallest of the “Oval Collections Framelits”.  I then cut a mat out of Island Indigo cardstock with the next size oval and punched out my first butterfly with the “Elegant Butterfly” punch.

I took the scrap piece of designer paper left over from the envelope liner, and punched out my second (smaller) butterfly with the “Bitty Butterfly Punch”.  I think the butterfly looks so cool punched out of the designer paper!


I adhered the smaller butterfly to the larger with the “Glue Dots”  because it allows better placement and I won’t get adhesive on the wings … I like them moveable. Our butterflies must fly!

To embellish card … I used 4 of the pearls that are connected together to create the body of the butterfly, and then wrapped another string of the pearls around my greeting.  I added a few loose ones too, just to created a smoother, airier look.

Well … I still had a strip of designer paper left from the envelope liner scrap, so I cut a piece for the inside of my card and edged it with the “Finishing Touches Edgelit Die”, (which is also on sale until the 13th).  It really did add the finishing touch to my card.


Hope my card brought some brightness into your day.  The pretty butterfly makes me think of spring (Wishing it was, while I was out salting the 1-1/2″ of sheer ice on my driveway)

Spring … I’m ready for you! LOL

Thanks for visiting me today.  Hope yours is a beautiful one.
