Hope tomorrow finds you feeling better card created with Stylish Stems Framelits
Hello Stampin’ Friends! I am excited to be highlighted in Kylie’s International Stampin’ Up! Blog Highlights, again! You will be able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be a part of an international blog hop, so please VOTE for my project! I would love to be a part of this special blog hop!
Our theme for this highlight is Get Well Soon! This theme worked out perfectly for me as I have a special stampin’ friend who has been ill and had surgery recently. I really needed a get well card! This card was quick and easy (my favorite kind) and I plan to make up a few to have some ready for the next time (even though I’m hoping I don’t have a next time! I really don’t like for my friends and family to not be well.)
While pondering ideas for my get well card, I took a visual stroll through my supplies and this pretty sheet of butterflies from the Falling In Love DSP caught my eye.
Being a nature lover, and quite fond of sunny days, I couldn’t think of anything more cheerful than flowers surrounded by masses of beautiful butterflies, so that settled it!
I also knew that the easiest way to achieve that look would be to use the new Stylish Stems Framelits Dies as their special design would allow me to die cut the flowers right into the paper, immediately surrounding them with butterflies!
I took another visual stroll and the sentiment, “Hope Tomorrow Finds You Feeling Better,” from the My Hero stamp set caught my eye. Perfect! I have to put a plug in here for this very special set! When you purchase this set, Stampin’ Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities, a very worthy cause! I can’t think of a more worthwhile purchase to add to your crafting supplies!
I finally landed on using a banner from the Bunch of Banners Framelits for the sentiment. To help the sentiment “pop” just a little more and not be obscured by the butterflies, I layered it over another banner cut from Sweet Sugarplum card stock and then accented it with a Falling In Love Embellishment. The floral jewel is pretty and adds a bit of sparkle. The only thing that I did not add (only because I discovered that all three of my tubes where empty, gasp!) was a bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the flower petals.
My goal was to not only provide you with a visually pretty card, but to also make it a card that could be easily duplicated. If you think that I have presented a visually pretty card that can be easily duplicated please go VOTE for me!
