How's this for a get well card? I think it's cute and the bright colours are cheerful and uplifting don't yo think? Hope none of you are needing a get well card this holiday season and I'm lucky enough to be able to put this one in card stash (thankfully I have my blog readers to share this with instead),
I'm so tired of doing Christmas cards and knew that I wanted to make anything but. I went through my paper hoard for this Get Sketchy sketch and came across this fun paper. I started putting this together without knowing what stamps I wanted to use and then finally decided to use my punches to make this apple core that I've seen on other blogs. At that point I still didn't know what kind of card this was going to be. Well I got all the pieces prepped and it was time to pick out the sentiment....I could have done pretty much anything but I decided to work with the old adage "An apple a day keeps the doctor away". I thought about making something for the teachers in our lives too but I wonder if they get tired of the apple theme themselves?
The apple was made using the SU! tab punch on Very vanilla and Real Red. I sponged the vanilla with So Saffron craft ink. The stem was made using the 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle punches and the leaf is made from the 5-petal punch. I may just make a small picture tutorial.
This was also my first time sponging (real red) on my nestabilities. I still need some practice and I'm in no way as good as my friend Tanis but I'll find my groove.
I really like where this paper took me and the relaxed creativity that came out of it. There was no pressure just a patient process that came out with a very nice end result. Don't you love it when that happens?
