Card A Day Blog Post: Get Well Soon

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by. It's time again for me to post on the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is, "Get Well Soon".

To make my card, I started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base, then added a piece of patterned paper cut to 5.25" x 4" to the front of the card. I then cut out a piece of white cards stock at 5.25" x 2", inked the edges using Recollections dye ink pad, Marine, which I also inked my patterned paper with, and adhered it to the middle of the card. Over my white card stock piece, I attached a piece of dark blue card stock cut to 5" x 1 3/4", embossed with my Cuddlbug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder, For my sentiment, I used stamps from the Stamping Scrapping Designs Fancy Accents. I stamped the frame on a piece of white card stock first, using the same recollections ink pad that I used for my inked edges, then stamped the "Get Well Soon" sentiment from the same stamp set, then cut it out around the edge of the frame.

For the label that my sentiment is attached to, I used a die from the Spellbinders die set, Fancy Tags, out of yellow card stock, attached it to the center of my dark blue embossed piece, then adhered the sentiment on top of it using pieces of foam tape, to add dimension. Both die and stamp sets are designed to coordinate together.

I just had to add a little "bling" to my card, as I often do, so I added blue  Round Jewel Dazzles to the corners of my sentiment, and the corners of my card. I just love these little jewels, and I'm finding that I've been using them quite often on a lot of my projects.

I hope you like the card that I've created, and I would love if you leave me a comment. I always love to hear what people think about my creations.

Very nice card the yellow really makes the sentiment pop out.
