It was supposed to be a simple Get Well card! It turned out a little more detailed then I thought it would. But then I never know how anything I make will turn out in the end. Also, Scrappy Moms Stamps is releasing 2 new sets. So here is my sneak peak at the new Mini Messages.
What can I say, I am really into the Umbrella Man die. Are you getting totally sick of him yet? But doesn't he fit with the card! I cut the card stock at 9 1/4" by 8" then scored down the center. I wanted a tall legal size envelope...or is that a bill size?
I ran my card through my cuttlebug with Elegant Bouquet embossing folder. Then I glued on the greyish buttons on the flowers. I did change all the buttons as I had them blue at first. As the card took form I needed to make the changes. Pretty eh?
I also decorated the inside of the card with the coordinating DP from the umbrella. It's a thick glitter paper. The wide black ribbon I saved from a Disneyland purchase this past summer. Don't throw anything away! I then ran some white card stock through my Tiny Tags die and stamped an Antique Ledger stamp for background. The "Get Well" sentiment is from the new Mini Messages set.
I stamped this great vintage stamp in versamark to make a resist for the 3" envelope, something for my tag to tuck in too. I distressed with TH Pumice Stone and Black Soot...did I get that right? OK grey and black! A great spot to tuck a little note. I finished the tag with the same Disney ribbon and an antique brad.
I punched the inside of the DP with the Martha Stewart Heart border punch. I saved the hearts for the Umbrella Man. I like how they trickle. Then I stamps "Thinking of You" right onto the card...another stamp from Mini Messages.
I kept the card masculine for my intended family member.
Thanks for popping in. Do you have a favorite part of the card? I love the mini envelope and tag. What a nice treat when it gets opened.
