Card A Day Blog: Feel Better soon

Hi everyone! It's my turn once again, to post my latest creation for the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is, Get Well Soon, and here is the card that I created.


Here are the materials I used to create my card:
  • 5.5 x 4.25 piece of white card stock for base of the card.
  • Medium orange card stock paper, or color of your choice.
  • Light orange card stock paper, or any other coordinating color.
  • Coordinating designer paper. I used Birdwatching Bird Cage, by Recollections.
  • Spellbinders Dies, Bird Flourishes , Picot Edge Circles, and Beautiful Brackets
  • Rhinestones in your choice of colors.
To make my card, I cut my designer paper 5.25 x 4 ", and attached it to the front of my card base. Then, I cut out a large Picot Circle in the medium orange card stock, then adhered it to the top of my designer paper. I cut out one of the large birds from the Bird Flourish die, and using a dauber, I  inked the edges using an orange ink pad, darker than the orange used for die. I then adhered the bird on top of the circle. I needed a label for my sentiment, so I thought one of the dies from the Beautiful Brackets die set would be perfect, so I cut the smaller bracket using the same card stock that I used for the bird, inked, and stamped it with my sentiment. I thought a little bling would add a nice touch, so I added rhinestones to the feathers, and one for the eye. There was one other rhinestone on one of the feathers, but it fell off prior to taking the picture, and I didn't realize it till I was writing this blog post...lol!

I hope you like my newest creation. If you would like to make a comment on what you think of it, please feel free to leave a comment. Also, don't forget to check out the monthly challenge on the Card A Day Blog.
