Hugs to You! A Get Well Card

Hi everyone!,

In bits and sprinkles this weekend, I put together a card for my very dear friend, Shelly, who was involved in a car accident last week.  I have been waiting to use this cute little stamp with a birdie on it.  It has a sentiment that says ""Merci" but I just put tape over that part when I stamped it in white ink and then pulled off the tape before I stamped the paper.  I also just Love the Baja Breeze color paper from Stampin' Up - I bought both the paper and the ink!  My living room is also that same color with cream and dark brown - somehow the greyish aqua is a color I always feel is calming and serene (the exact opposite of my life!  LOL!!)

The card measures 5x7" in dark brown card stock by Bazzill, patterned by Basic Grey, Offbeat Collection Pack and yellow from Michael's.  The blue is Baja Breeze by Stampin' Up as is the striped ribbon in Marina Mist.  I added a strip of crimped paper bag colored paper from Bazzill.  The stamp is from Michael's.

I stamped the image in white, added clear embossing powder and heat set it.  Then I used my Copic Markers to color in the birdie and flower.  Here you can see the paper bag colored Bazzill paper I crimped using a roller you can buy at Michael's.

The ribbon is from Stampin' Up and is 1 1/4" wide which I thought was way to wide, but it ties in a bow beautifully - they make great grosgrain ribbon!

Here's a side view.  I popped up the sentiment onto the oval circle which I cut out with George and Basic Shapes on my Cricut.  The scalloped oval is from Marvy Uchida.

This is the inside of the card.  I added the birdie paper for decoration and also to get a continuous length of paper 14' long to fold in half.  The sentiment stamp is from My Pink Stamper!

I hope she likes it!

Take care and enjoy your week!
