Freshly Made Sketches #104 & Less is More: Get Well Soon

Another sketch card entry. I have a few friends who haven't been feeling well and I thought that this challenge would be helpful because I find it hard to make get well soon (and sympathy) cards.

I saw the sketch for this card at Freshly Made Sketches I also thought I could combine with Less is More card theme of Get Well Soon.

To create the card I first cut the banner using very vanilla cardstock and used a square punch to create the flag. I then stamped the bandaid from the patterned occasions stamp set (retired) using strawberry slush and cut it out. The sentiment I used is from teeny tiny sentiments and stamped in coastal cabana. The card base is coastal cabana, I then cut a piece of the birthday basics designer series paper. I adhered it to the base with snail tape. The banner is popped up with dimensionals. I decided to add some rhinestones for embellishment. This is my first card using the new 2013-15 in color inks and cardstock, I also used my color coach to help me with color combinations. So please tell me what you think.

  1. Hi Alysia, this is a lovely card but I don't think that you spotted that our challenge this week is for a One Layer Card, so sadly this card will not be eligible for consideration in this current challenge.
