Just A Note

How about this for a get well soon card?  I do not normally make such bulky hard to ship cards like this one.  This is my first real hand made flower, I cut out the circles myself using a double scalloped edge scissor.  I used my Silhouette for the leaves.  The butterfly is from an edge punch (scraps from it).  The center of the flower is a really old button.  The kids playing the piano is a digi stamp from Stitchy Bear Stamps, the phrase is from Sentimental Sundays weekly freebies.  I squirted the card front with my glimmer mist to add just that little bit of extra sparkle.  The only mistake I made is by adding the scented glitter paint around the outside – I thought it would look super cool, but I really should have tried it before using it on my finished product!  😦


When using something new, always try a sample on scrap paper before using it on your final project.

Thanks for looking!

  5. Your flower is beautiful and I love that Duet image. I haven’t used mine yet, but your card is inspiration to make one now. 🙂
    Love the distressed papers and the mist around the outside really does look nice. Your TIP is a great thing to remember as well. Wish I had applied that several times in the past when I’ve ruined a card. 😦 LOL
