A get well card...

My father asked me to make him a get well card for a friend of his. I could not resist using one of my new papertrey inc sets, Out on a Limb. I think I ended up stamping the image out about three or more times to get that perfect image for this card.



I love the quotes in this set but none of them said get well to me so I grabbed one of my Stampin Up! sets and used the sentiment "praying for you." The inside is left blank for my dad to write what he feels needs to be said.

I stamped this image and then cut it out using my retangle nestablities dies to both cut and emboss the image. I used some of papertrey's new perfect match card stock and their Everyday Blessing designer paper to help bring this card togather. I think the vellum cardstock frame around the edge of the image gives it a more elegant look also. Hope you enjoyed today's card and I am going to see what I can do today since tomorrow I have training and will be back on Sunday to tell you all about it... have a great weekend.


Supplies:
Stamps: Out on a Limb by papertrey inc, stampin up sentiment
Ink: Adirondack espresso, papertrey aqua mist, wild wasbi, pallet ink yellow
Cardstock: papertrey stampers select white, aqua mist, everyday blessings designer paper, cardstock vellum
Accessories: cuttlebug, large retangle nestablitiles set
