Flickr Challenge: Feel Better

Today's card was created for the new Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn Flickr co-challenge. The theme is Kraft, and since I'm a big fan of Kraft, I knew I just had to enter. So, I grabbed my Lawn Fawn and Simon goodies and got creative.

I started by creating my card base by cutting and folding a piece of Khaki cardstock into a standard A2 card (4¼ by 5½"). Then I pulled out my Bigshot and die-cut my front panel out of Kraft cardstock, using a stitched rectangle. While I had my Bigshot out, I also die-cut the scalloped rectangle from Lawn Fawn's Hello Sunshine petite paper. I used the banner die from Stitched Journaling Card to cut a couple of banners.

I stamped the bird nurse from Lawn Fawn's Get Well Soon in the bottom left corner of the panel with Dark Chocolate ink. I masked her off, then stamped the little prescription bottle. I used my Prismacolor pencils to color the two images and scribbled a quick ground/shadow underneath them.

For the sentiment, I used Simon Says Stamp's More Sketchy Banner Greetings stamp set. I stamped it in the same chocolate ink.

I adhered the scalloped rectangle to the card base, then added the kraft panel with foam tape. I adhered the two banners just under the sentiment. As a last touch, I added a light gray enamel dot.
