A Gentle Get Well

I've said it before and I'll say it again--Stampin' Up! designed the Spice Cake suite just for me-- leaves, fall colors--no pink! As I designed this card, I knew it needed to be earthy--a reminder of the strength found in nature to sustain us through hard times.

I'm sending this one off to a friend's husband whom is having difficulty recovering from a motorcycle accident. I've known them for 10 years and they have made my time here teaching a joy.

Stamps: Gently Falling, Sincere Salutations  
Paper: Spice Cake Designer Series paper, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Pool Party Ink: More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede
Accessories: Early Espresso 1/8" Ribbon, 3 " Circle Bigz Die, Big Shot, Tags Sizzlet, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Simply Scored, 12" Paper Cutter, Oval Punch, More Mustard Brad, Paper Piercing Tool

I got the template for this card from my Stampin' Up! Demonstrator friend, Patrice, at our last team meeting. She figured out a template that would fit a regular sized envelope. For my card, I first inked my leaves in More Mustard and then swirled the edges using the rock-n-roll technique. Then, I stamped the outlines in Soft Suede. For the tag, I sponged the edges and then stamped my old-time favorite Sincere Salutations. For the background, I cut squares of Spice Cake Designer series paper to fit my template.

Happy Stamping!
