DIY Card Making: Making a Get Well Card
There is nothing like learning about someone else's health problems to put yours in perspective, right? This week, I have not been feeling well at all. I have spent most of the week in bed. Then today I was notified that a very sweet friend of mine had emergency surgery on Monday, she is recovering well, but it put my “I just don't feel good blues” into perspective.
I got up, grabbed a Dr. Pepper and went into my stamp room. Low and behold, it was a clean stamp room. That TOTALLY threw me. I forgot that I had cleaned it on Sunday. That was happy accident #1.
Happy accident #2 was that the only card stock I had out was Strawberry Slush and Whisper White. I instantly knew my color palette.
Happy accident #3: I stand when stamp. I can't sit and stamp, it just doesn't work for me. (I can almost see some of you nodding your head as you read that, my fellow stand-when-stamping-friends.) But I knew it just wasn't going to happen. So I could only use things I could reach from my chair. (now if you can imagine, my stamp room has kitchen cabinets in it, and I was using a regular height chair – so I couldn't reach much)
This is why I stand and stamp – even though most everything is within reach – as soon as I sit down, I will need something on the other side of the room.
While sitting today, I was forced to only use things within my reach.
I was really afraid of how this card might look when I was done. It was meant to be a pick me up, but would it be so bad that it would make my friend feel worse? But I really like how it turned out. It has the clean and simple look that I was going for, and I don't think it looks tragic.
Very few supplies were used in making this Get Well Card:
Stamps: Lacy & Lovely, A Dozen Thoughts, Mosaic Madness
Ink: Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar
Card Stock: Strawberry Slush, Whisper White
Accessories: Rhinestone Jewels
That is it! Can you believe it? OK, I am off to put a new video tutorial in Stamping Family and then this stamper is headed back to bed!
I hope that you have enjoyed this DIY Card making idea on making a get well soon card!
