Floral Get Well
My next door neighbour is having knee replacement surgery this week so I thought I would make a get well card to take over to her when she gets home from the hospital.
I started with some white card stock from Staples for my blank. The background paper is from Gin-X and then the next layer is a piece from a Prima pad called Printery. On top of that is a piece I made from another piece of white card, a hexagon mask from Recollections and Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks.
I aded a piece of lace from my stash, some eyelash yarn, some pearl loops and some greenery that my friend Pamellia die cut for me.
The large flower is made from scraps of pink and green card stock and was edged with some Victorian Velvet DI. The little roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and all the flowers have been sprayed with Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist.
Finally I used my computer and a little tag punch from Martha Stewart to create a sentiment and some pink vellum and another Martha Stewart punch to create the butterfly. I added some pearls to the butterfly for a body.
