I have had quite a few friends and family in need of get-well cards, due to surgeries.
There is always a go to stamp set I think of when I make these kind of cards and that’s Back on Your Feet #149385. It has just the right sayings and pictures that are sure to make your recipient smile.
I made today’s card with a little ribbon trick, I wanted to share with all of you.
I used the white 3/8″ Glittered Organdy ribbon #156408, that I am happy to say will be in our new Annual Catalog. I just received my catalog and was happy to see it return. You can do so many things with it, including coloring it.
I used my Flirty Flamingo Blend marker with the brush end and glided it along the ribbon to color it. Do it several times if you want it darker.
Then I took my paper snips and cut the ribbon in half and glued it to the middle of the white ribbon.
I also colored a small piece for the end of my saying tag. I used Granny Apple Green Blend marker for that. It gave the card just the right amount of sparkle.
This cute set is going to retire, but you can still get it now. Since it is on the Last Chance list, I wouldn’t wait. Products are as supplies last.
I will still be using this set, long after it retires. I absolutely love it!
