Happy Healing

Hi friends! A very happy last Tuesday of the month to you! Wow… another month has flown by! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! A new ‘5 Colors Plus Twist’ Challenge has started today over at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge and our sponsor is Eureka Stamps so be sure to come on over and play! The twist this time is to make a Get Well card so I created a cheerful patchwork card for a far away friend using the sponsor’s image called Flower Girl that was gifted to me! This was a fun one!

For the ‘5 Colors Plus Twist’ Challenge this fortnight, we are to use at least three of the five colors shown in the photo below, as well as as play the twist of making a Get Well card. I used all five colors in my card.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a layering panel from 80# Solar White. I cut stitched squares and rectangles from CutCardStock Basis 80# Aqua, Basis 80# Coral, Basis 80# Pink, Basis 80# Red cardstock and CutCardStock Pop-Tone 65# Gumdrop Green cardstock and arranged them on the white cardstock panel. I printed the digital image on a full sheet of 80# Solar White cardstock and cut it with my Scan N Cut along with four more plain die cuts, colored the top one with alcohol markers, and then layered them together for dimension. I stamped the sentiment in the top right corner, adhered the flower girl, and added Eyelet Outlet White Enamel Dots.

Here’s an angled shot showing the dimension of the digital image, almost like a thick paper doll! ;)

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a couple more stitched die cuts and a Brutus Monroe Conversation Clipping (telling my far away healing friend that I miss her), and adhered the panel directly to the inside of the card base.

And one more look… love how this turned out! The patchwork design is so fun and pairs perfectly with the adorable image!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. I LOVE the image, it’s so pretty, cutting out a digi image is great on a digital cutting machine isn’t it? I love the patchwork design and the gorgeous colour mix Leslie, a Beautiful card.
