Lawn Fawn - Get Well

I have been meaning to photograph and write about this card for a while. It feels like I created it ages ago, and it's just been sitting on display in my craft closet. I'm not really sure why I haven't written about it yet. Maybe I just got excited about other cards I've made after? Well, I decided I better post this before I've sent it away to someone.

This card started with Lawn Fawn's Get Well Soon stamp set and coordinating dies. I stamped out the nurse bird, bandaid and pill bottle in MFT's black licorice hybrid ink and colored them in with Copics. I then cut them out with the coordinating dies. While I had my Bigshot out, I also cut out a flag banner from Stitched Journaling die. I stamped "get well" from the stamp set on the banner.

I prepared the card base by cutting and scoring a sheet of Neenah Desert Storm environmental cardstock in half to create a standard top-folding card. I then used the bandaid and MFT kraft ink to create a custom tone-on-tone background.

I used Lawn Fawn's Stitched Scalloped Borders die to cut two borders from Let's Polka petite patterned paper. I also cut out a thin strip of the blue paper and a thicker strip of the striped gray paper, as well as a plain white cardstock rectangle. I adhered the layers together and added them to the card base.

I created the window trio by cutting the striped gray strip into 3 equal squares, then cutting 3 smaller squares from white cardstock and layering them together. I adhered the stamped images and the sentiment banner with foam squares.

As a last touch, I tied a piece of white ribbon to the bottom of the card.
