Feel Better Soon, Friend!


It's never fun to "need" a get well card, but I do. In fact, I generally don't make get well cards because usually the person is feeling better before they even get their card. However, the person who will be getting this will probably be needing some cheering up for a while. My "get well" sets are few and far between, but as I was searching I saw this set that I love and I don't think I have ever used this sentiment with it. The set is called "Autumn Abundance" from PTI and since it isn't even technically summer yet, I chose to use the sunflower image rather than the other two which are definitely fall. I colored the flowers in such a way that they could be a type of daisy if you wanted.  I chose to use some summery paper as well to make it cheery and bright.



 I am always more apt to use my sets that have coordinating diecuts as well. This is one of those sets. I just like that I can layer the colored image on a piece of pattern paper for more "punch". This set reminds me of a card I made a few years ago that is one of my favorites. You can see it here. I obviously didn't go into as much detail on today's card, but I wanted to give it a similar feel with the punched flowers and circle focal image. I colored the image using copic markers and then used my color spritzing tool to add some brown splatters to the pitcher. I like doing that because it makes it look more like real pottery. I also added some glossy accents to it to make it look more realistic!



The bottom piece is diecut from pattern paper and then stitched down using my sewing machine.  I will pop this little card in the mail and hopefully it will bring cheer to the recipient and she will know she is cared about. Thanks for fluttering by!
