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!
