Hi Stampers. It’s been COLD! Winter has officially arrived… burr… Cold weather means colds – that means we need Get Well cards! I love it – another reason to stamp!
This card started out with a Crumb Cake card base – 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″. Next is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Chocolate Chip card stock. The “wood” layer is a piece of Very Vanilla card stock cut at 5″ x 3.75″, stamped with the Stampin’ Up! Hardwood background stamp, stamped in Crumb Cake ink.
Stampin’ Tip: The background stamps are very large and can be hard to apply even pressure the normal way. Therefore, I layed the stamp on the table with the image up. I then applied the Crumb Cake ink by patting the Stampin’ pad all over the stamp and then placing the Very Vanilla card stock on top of the stamp, covering with a scrap of copy paper and applying even pressure all over the paper to transfer the ink to the card stock.
I stamped the “get well soon” from the Delightful Dozen stamp set with Chocolate Chip ink onto Very Vanilla card stock and punched out with the 1 3/8″ circle punch. I then cut a 1 1/2″ circle with the Circle framelits out of Crumb Cake card stock and a slightly larger circle with the Starburst framelits and Chocolate Chip card stock. I adhered the Very Vanilla to the Crumb Cake with snail adhesive, and the Crumb Cake to the Chocolate Chip with dimensionals. Beneath the circles, I have a strip of 1 1/4″ Burlap ribbon and a strip of 3/4″ Chocolate Chip Chevron ribbon.
Stampin’ Tip: To get that perfect point in the bottom of the ribbon, I layered them one on top of the other, centering the smaller ribbon in the larger one and and folded to two in half and cut from half an inch up in the center to the edge of the ribbon with very sharp scissors. I have a special pair of Stampin’ Up! Craft Scissors that I only use on ribbon so they stay sharp.
I find the ribbon adheres to the other ribbon and the card best with glue dots. Have a great day, my friends!
