Get Well

Hey all! I have a super quick card to share today. A friend of mine commissioned a masculine get well card and this is what I came up with. I know that I struggle with making cards for men. I like to use ribbon and softer colors, and I don’t think that translates well for a masculine card!



I recently ordered the Pink Paislee Nantucket Collection. I’ve seen it used so many places that I just couldn’t resist it any longer. Now, because the colors of the papers in the collection were feminine, I couldn’t use them here, but I did get the boat from the ephemera pack. It’s loaded with so many die cuts that I cannot wait to use.

My paper came from the My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found Portobello Road pad. It’s an oldie, but definitely a goodie! I die cut a Label 4 from the patterned paper and a piece of Kraft to use as a backdrop for my boat. I inked around the edges of the larger label with my Slate Fresh Ink. It’s my new go to gray ink. Before I adhered my label, I did glue down a piece of burlap that I received from Liz’s Paperloft Boutique.

I stamped my sentiment from the WPlus9 Hope Seed Co. stamp set. I used another of my new inks, Blue Sage, also a Fresh Ink, to stamp it. I then trimmed it with my scissors.

Super quick card. I didn’t even have to change the thread in my sewing machine!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed day!
