Anna’s Get Well Card for #GDP001

By | September 10, 2015

Today, I made a get well card for my cousin Anna using the new challenge blog, Global Design Project.  This week is their first challenge…a color challenge.

I recently found out that my cousin accidentally fell and broke her leg.  I wanted to make her a card and felt that the color challenge #GDP001 would be perfect for her.

I stamped the Kind Koala onto Smoky Slate and So Saffron cardstock for paper piecing.  I used my Paper Snips to cut out the koala and flower.

I then masked the stamp with washi tape, covering any areas I did not want to have inked. 

I applied ink and then removed the washi tape before stamping onto the Pink Pirouette from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.

Next, I adhered the Smoky Slate koala and So Saffron flower onto the stamped image.

The sentiment I used comes from Thoughts & Prayers.  I masked the bottom of the stamp because I wanted to save the “Get Well Soon” for the inside of the card.  

I then adhered the Pink Pirouette to the front of the card base by using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside, I masked the “Wishing you a quick and complete recovery.”  By masking the stamp, I was able to create an outside and inside sentiment.

To finish it off, I added a strip of Pink Pirouette to the inside along with a few more flowers.
