Do you buy Designer Series Paper (DSP) and then never use it because its too nice and you might run out? I have to confess it is a problem I suffer from, but I'm trying to 'cure' myself!! LOL. I have forced myself to cut all the NEW DSP I ordered, and have been trying to get it on to cards and scrapbook layouts, after all - I can always order some more - right?
I really like Birthday Basics DSP and surprise, surprise, on the reverse of some lovely birthday candles is this fresh green flower-sprigged paper, which made me think, "Get Well" card. I Used the sketch by Amy this week, at Freshly Made Sketches for inspiration. Pop over and see what the team did with the sketch. Anyway, partway through my creating I began to have some doubts, and made a second card, using the same sketch, but less of the DSP. I cut two white doilies using the Large Delicate Doilies die and stamped two different get well messages, but both out of the Express Yourself Hostess stamp set, which has twelve different greetings in a lower case script. I've stamped a blossom, or three, from Flower Shop and punched them out with the Pansy punch, finishing with In Color Dahlias, perfect for flower centres or stand-alone blooms. The lower card has also been stamped with the largest stamp from Daydream Medallion. Ink Colours: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple.
Now that both of them are finished, I THINK I still prefer the original at the top of the page, but nevertheless, I now have two Get Well Cards for my stash!
Let me know which one you like best.
