Hello blogging friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!! Did you go out and do some shopping on Black Friday or did you just stay home? We didn't go out to do any shopping but we did get some great deals on a few online purchases.
Today, I have a Get Well card to share with you. The card is for the wife of one of Eric's co-workers. She has been in the hospital. I hope she will have a speedy recovery and feel up to coming the the company Christmas party in a few weeks.
I used one of the images from the new Crafty Secrets CD #2 Creating With Vintage Illustrations. I think the image of the little bird and flowers is so pretty.
I wanted the bird and the flowers to really pop so I added a little more color to the image with Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I also added a little Pralines & Cream Fairy Dust Glitter from Clearsnap to the flourishes.
I printed the sentiment onto Simply Smooth Ivory cardstock and used S5-030 Fancy Tags Two to cut/emboss the die cut shape. Then I layered the diecut, Fancy Tags Two Nestaboard and Fancy Tags Two White Pearl Nestabling from Want2Scrap. I used 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to pop up the tag.
I added a seam binding bow and some paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Then I added a little glitter to the flowers.
To create the shape card I used LF-127 Grand Scalloped Squares and for the image of the bird I used LF-161 Grand Labels One die templates from Spellbinders™.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend. How many of you already have your trees up and house decorated? We still need to do ours but hopefully we will get the tree put up and all of the decorating done this week.
Hugs & Smiles,
