Happy Friday the 13th! Apparently, I paid zero attention to the calendar when making this card. I would have tried to come up with something spooky had I known the date, ha!
I have been needing a lot of get well cards lately, so I thought I’d make another to replenish my stash. This uses the Get Well Soon stamp set from Lawn Fawn and I seriously love this set so much. Those bandaids? That chick? The medicine bottle? They just speak to me for some reason. Maybe I secretly wanted to be in the medical field? I don’t know, but I’m glad that Lawn Fawn made this, it makes me happy.
It’s actually a simple card to make, here’s how I did it:
- Draw diagonal lines with a pencil on a piece of watercolor paper. I did this to make the stamping easier, totally optional.
- Stamp the bandaid image repeatedly between those lines. I used versafine ink and then clear embossing powder so that it would make the coloring easier.
- Heat the images so the embossing powder melts.
- Erase the pencil lines. You want to make sure to do this before coloring, so that you don’t trap any pencil marks in the coloring. Especially important if you plan to color in the background.
- Color your images however you like. I used Zig clean color markers, and a watercolor brush. I used the packaging from a Lawn Fawn Cardstock sampler to pick my colors.
- Cut out the panel using a die from the Lawn Fawn rectangle stackables die set. I absolutely love this die set, and hope you do too. I fear you’ll be seeing it in almost everything I make.
- Stamp the chick and sentiment on a piece of vellum, and then I clear embossed that as well. I turned the vellum over and colored in the chick using Zig markers again. The sentiment comes from a Hero Arts stamp set called Everyday Sayings. It’s lovely, and sort of a must have.
- Wrap the vellum around the background panel, and then adhere that to a card base made from Lawn Fawn Mermaid cardstock.
