Get Well - Pal Paper Arts #233

Hello Boxing Day!  I'd don't know about you, but I'm Christmased out.  After all the travelling, the turkey dinners, and opening the presents, I'm pooped.

Today I'm relaxing, making some cards, organizing my retired DSP, and generally enjoying myself.

I wanted to make a Get Well card, because I just heard that a friend of mine in Newfoundland is in the hospital after suffering a stroke.

The card I just finished is for the Pal Paper Arts challenge here  I used some of the new DSP in the Occasions catalogue, a Hostess Stamp set, and new blendabilities colours (all of which will be available Jan. 6, 2015)

Here's how I made the card:

  1. Start with a Sky Blue card base 8 1/2 by 5 1/2, scoring at 4 1/4 to make an A2 card
  2. Layer with a piece of 4 by 5 1/2" piece of DSP - in this case "Best Year Ever"
  3. On a 3 5/8 by 4 3/4" piece of Whisper white cardstock, stamp the image using Black Memento ink.
  4. Colour the image with blendabilities - Pink Pirouette, Sky Blue, Wild Wasabi
  5. Mat this with a 3 1/2 by 4 7/8" piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock.
  6. Adhere a 1 1/8 by 3 1/2" of DSP to a 3 by 1 1/4" piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock.
  7. Attach Pink Pirouette chevron ribbon to the center of this piece.  With the left over piece, tie a piece of Baker's twine in the middle and tie tightly.  Attach to the middle of the ribbon with a glue dot.
  8. Adhere this strip to the left side of the card.
  9. Stamp the sentiment on a 2 by 1/2" piece of Whisper White, and attach to a 2 by 3/4" piece of Soft sky.  Attach to the card.
  10. Punch 3 arrows of 3 different colours using the Pennant punch and attach to the end of the sentiment strip.
  11. Using the small heart punch, punch a piece of the DSP and adhere to the Itty Bitty Accents Eposxy Stickers.  Attach this to the farthest arrow with a glue dot.
  12. Put some glitter in the middle of the flowers.
