Get Well

Today I made a get well card.  The background paper (that's almost hidden) is a DP I bought a long time ago.  The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils.  The edges of the papers have been distressed and I used Spun Sugar and Fired Brick distress ink on the flower and butterfly.

I've been playing with my Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch die and swirl stamp.  I used the flower die to cut out several different size flowers and then punched them with a MS corner punch.  I then layered them with some tulle and lace.

I have been making my own boxes for my larger cards but I think that's going to change.  Joan has clear plastic mailing boxes that are very reasonably priced.  Sure would save me a lot of time!

I stamped the outside of the box with the Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Swirl stamp and then colored it using Pearl Ex.  I bought these years ago and hardly ever use them.  But they were the perfect color for what I needed today and they add some beautiful shimmer to an otherwise plain box.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a blessed day!
