I don't know about you, but I need a break from all things Valentine's Day! I feel as though I have been sharing a lot of ideas lately that have incorporated love, hearts, roses and more, but enough already! Today we are going to talk about another popular ailment this time of year - the dreaded flu! Knock on wood, I haven't been sick yet this winter, but it's coming, this I know! Until then, I will keep sanitizing e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g in sight and prepare some get well cards in advance.
*A full list of supplies (with shopping links) is located at the end of this post.
This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". The base of this card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I lined the card base with a 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of pale pink cardstock. I then lined this pale pink cardstock with a sheet of gray gingham paper from the Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gingham paper pack. Using the Whimsy Stamps Slimline Scallop Die, I cut the frame from gray cardstock. Using gray ink, I stamped various sentiments like "germs" and "got soup" around the gray frame. These sentiments are available with the Whimsy Stamps Get Well stamp set. I stamped the three animals (pig, chicken and cat) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White Smooth paper. I used my Scan & Cut 2 electronic cutting machine to cut the images out instead of fussy cutting them.
I colored the images with Copic markers and added a few highlights to each image using a white Uniball gel pen. I added the images to the card using foam adhesive for added height and dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to all three images for added sparkle.
Now that I've been sharing a lot of these slimline cards, I'm curious if YOU have tried to make one yet?!
Thanks for visiting and happy creating!
