Spring Floral Get Well Card

 Hello Friends,

Diane here on the Die R Us blog to share with you a pretty Spring Floral Get Well card.  I know a lot of us struggle with sinus issues this time of year and sometimes we really don't feel that great.  Here is a quick card you can make for a friend or loved one who might need a little cheering up.  I hope this card will get those crafty mojos movin'.

Card Instructions:

Using 110 lb white card stock, cut a piece that measures 4 7/8 X 12, score at 6 and fold in half.  Here is your card base.  The patterned paper I used for this card is by Prima Marketing called "With Love".  I selected the printed puffy heart paper for bottom layer because it has a lot of different colors in it.  I used the die set below from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson called Scalloped Lattice Frames - Set B to cut the bottom layer of my card.  I selected the second to the smallest frame die. I purchased this die set from Die R Us.  Here is a photo of this die set:

Run the die with your selected paper and adhere it to your card base.  Next take a piece of solid colored cardstock.  I used a pink shimmer cardstock from Recollections, but you can use whatever you choose.  I took the Lattice die and the smallest frame with my pink shimmer cardstock and ran it though my die cutting machine.  I adhered the panel to my card.  Next I cut out my flowers.  I selected the die set from Karen Burniston called 1026-Flowers and Bee available at Dies R Us.

Select multiple patterned paper and solid paper, cut lots of flowers and some of the leaves.  This way you can play with colors and sizes.  Shape your flowers and then adhere some on top of one another and others, just use a single layer.  I added flat backed pearls to the center of mine.  I played with the presentation of the floral bouquet until I was please and then adhered it to the front of my card.
Now it's time for the sentiment.  I selected the Lawn Fawn, Scripty Sayings stamp set and chose the get well soon sentiment.  

I simply stamped this in green ink and cut it out using my paper trimmer.  I popped it up on foam dots and added a tiny flower to one end of the sentiment strip.  That's it.  Card finished.

I hope that you will try this simple design.  Putting this card together was fun and easy and I know that you can do it too.  Thank you for visiting the Dies R Us blog today.  I hope I was able to inspire you with my card.  Hugs,  Diane
