Get Well Flower

I've got another get-well card for today. It's a very simple little card, but happy enough to cheer up the person who's feeling sick.

I started by die-cutting the delicate flowers from Simon Says Stamp's Fresh Daisies die out of white cardstock. I used a couple of Copics to add a touch of color to it. While I had my Bigshot out, I die-cut a scalloped rectangle out of some yellow striped paper.

I wanted the sentiment to be subtle, so I cut a strip of vellum. I stamped the sentiment from Clearly Besotted's Sweet Little Sentiments in Versamark ink. I embossed it in white with the Hero Arts white embossing powder.

I attached the vellum to the front panel with a combination of adhesive and a simple brad. I then adhered the flower with Tombow liquid glue. I added the card to a light gray card base with foam tape.

As a last touch, I adhered a few gold sequins from Simon's Sparkle and Shine mix.
