Get Well Card

I wanted to make a get well card and as I was clearing a space on my desk in which to work I came across this frame which I'd cut especially to go on another card and then somehow it didn't work.  Rather than consign it to the bits box I thought I'd make myself use it straight away.  Luckily this silhouette stamp from Stampin' Up was of a suitable size so I stamped it onto a scrap of white card, brushed lightly with blue ink and mounted it behind the frame.  Backing paper is from Prima  and the oddment of whitewash core-d'inations card was put through the Big Shot with a Cuttlebug folder then sanded and inked.  A computer greeting punched with SU punches and there it is a fairly quick and easy card suitable for male or female.


  1. Hi Val...another lovely card from you. Really admire how you are using up all your bits and pieces. Suz x (PS thanks for the email have made me want to pop into Hobbycraft on way home from work as they have loads of mags there).

  2. A lovely card Val and as you say suitable for both male or female. I love the backing paper you've used on this.

  3. Lovely card Val and I love that Sue says it could be for male or female.


  4. Another great card Val, love how the BP complements the stamped image. Prima pads have such beautiful designs don't they?

  6. Well done you on using up some of your stash to make this lovely card Val. Hugs, Jenny x

  7. Super colours with the greens & browns all melding together. The die-cut frame makes the stamped image look like a postage stamp in jumbo size - really effective. I particularly like the way the eye is drawn towards the image with the clear white space inside the frame just tastefully accented by those pearls.

  8. That works really well. Very impressed you used the frame before it became another 'bit'!

  9. Very nice colour combo and you get a gold star for using that frame straight away. I should definitely take a leaf from your book. Love the Prima paper!
