Welcome to another C4G biweekly challenge! The theme for this challenge is “thinking of you” but I put a little bit of a spin on it. I think that a get well card means I am thinking of you without actually coming out and saying it, so that’s what I did.
Here’s my card:
I’ve always loved this sloth from the Back on Your Feet cling stamp set. This set also includes a giraffe whose neck is tied in a knot and a turtle stuck on his back. Originally I thought I’d use a clean and simple card with the turtle. However, after I finished the sloth card, I decided I liked it better.
Here’s the alternate get well card using the turtle:
Originally, I used my blends to color another turtle, but I really wanted clean and simple. The black and white turtle fits the bill a bit better.
Both of these cards were easy-peasy cards, which makes them even cuter, in my opinion.
Colors and Measurements
- Both of these cards start with a Night of Navy base. I trimmed one sheet of navy cardstock into two 5-1/2 by 8-1/2 inches, and scored them at 4-1/4.
- The white mats for the fronts of the card measure 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches. I dry embossed the sloth one with the subtle embossing folder. I used the pinewood planks embossing folder for the turtle card.
- The green DSP on the turtle card comes from the Oh So Ombre 6 x 6 inch DSP pack available for a few more days in the Sale-a-Bration catalog. This DSP is FREE with a $50 purchase!
- Sometimes things just work out perfectly, and for these cards that’s exactly what happened. I already had colored the sloth for a previous project, but didn’t use it. I’d also embossed Granny Apple Green and Crumb Cake cardstock using the pinewood planks embossing folder. That previous project was also supposed to use the sloth sentiment. Winner! Winner! All this just reinforces the fact that I need to keep all these unused parts for a future project!
- The leaves behind the sloth come from the Forever Fern bundle. Thankfully, they match the details on the sloth’s attached leaves.
- I thought the Early Espresso faux suede ribbon just finished off the sloth card.
- After I thought I’d finished the turtle card, I realized I needed to add something. Therefore, I added three of the black matte dots which draw your eyes to the center of the card with the focal image and sentiment.
- I trimmed a piece of Old Olive DSP to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for each envelope flap. After adhering and trimming both flaps, I’d finished this pair of card/envelope sets.
