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!
