Now that Christmas is over, it’s time to share some non-Christmas cards.
There are not one, but two people I know – my 87 year old neighbour, and an 89 year old friend – who have both fallen and broken a hip in the last week or so.
Earlier this year, I purchased the Lawn Fawn set “Get Well Soon“. (Thankfully, I hadn’t needed to use it until now.) I went looking on Pinterest for inspiration, and this card from Katie Melhus (of sweetnspiffy.blogspot.com) caught my eye.
So I took the idea and put my own spin on it. Here’s what I came up with:
Now, I wasn’t 100% happy with this card, but it was still fine for what I wanted. With this first card, I made the mistake of adding the tiny red hearts and face before I’d added the white topper. I learned my lesson pretty quickly, so for the second card, I added the white topper then added the extra stamping.
I also added tiny hearts using the stamp set rather than sequins. In both cases I used colours that matched the rest of the card. Those tiny hearts are so much better in my opinion.
Thanks for looking, and as always, if you want to comment, and the comment box isn’t showing, click the title of this post and it will magically appear!
