Get Well Soon Flourish


Hello crafty peeps!  Thanks for stopping in past today.  Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

I've made a Get Well card today and used the recipe from Less is More which is a one layer this week with a flourish.

I've started with a Very Vanilla card base and made a template of squares.  I then stamped the flourish from Everything Eleanor in Basic Grey.  Sponged round the edges of the squares in Old Olive using my Sponge Dauber.  My little flowers are punched using Itty Bitty Shapes and are Melon Mambo card stock.  They each have a little Basic Pearl in the centre.  I added a butterfly from the SAB set Elementary Elegance in Melon Mambo.  I didn't want the butterflies and flowers competing for attention so stamped off the butterflies on scrap first.  The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen and stamped in Melon Mambo.

That's it for me today.  Off out to do some much needed weeding!  Take care. x

Gorgeous card. I'd get well sooner if I received this!

I especially like the shading in the squares. It really brings the whole piece to life.

cheers,

Aileen, this is fabulous! I love this layout...and you've inspired me to try it again. I always hesitate to use masked off squares because I usually mess up 3 or 4 cards before I finally get it right!!
