Ornate Garden Meets Healing Hugs

Hello! I recently needed to send a get well card so I created this card using products from the Ornate Garden suite and combined it with the Healing Hugs stamp set, which is a favorite of mine for get well cards. As I was checking out some demonstrator blogs I saw a number of cards with a layout that I thought would be easy to make, showcase our Designer Series Papers and make a pretty card all at the same time. The layout is from Sunday Stamps, a weekly challenge. You can click here to view the blog post in which this layout appeared in April 2019.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score and fold in half.
  • Die cut a piece of Old Olive cardstock with the largest die in the Stitched Rectangles dies set and adhere to card front.
  • Cut three strips of paper from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper at 3 1/2″ x 1 1/2″. Adhere to Old Olive piece leaving space in between each strip.
  • Stamp get well sentiment from Healing Hugs stamp set with Terracotta Tile ink on scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Using the small floral cluster stamp from the Ornate Style stamp set, stamp all over the greeting with Mint Macaron ink, stamping off each time before stamping onto the greeting. Cut greeting using the next-to-largest circle die in the Stitched Shapes die set. Adhere to card front.
  • Cut two pieces of linen thread and tie into bow. Adhere to greeting with a Mini Glue Dot.
  • For the inside of the card cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/2″. Stamp the floral cluster with Mint Macaron ink in opposite corners. Stamp greeting with Terracotta Tile ink. Adhere to card.

Healing Vibes

Hello and for those of you in the U.S. Happy Labor Day! Today I’m participating for the first time in Kylie Bertucci’s International Stampin’ Up! Blog Highlights. Readers get to vote on their top five favorites in the gallery and the top 10 ten winners will get to participate in an International Blog Hop later this month. The theme is encouragement and I hope you like my card.

I chose to work with Healing Hugs, a stamp set in the Distinktive line of photo-realistic stamps. I love the sentiments as well as the type fonts in this set. A group of women that stamp with me a few times a year recently asked to make some get well and sympathy cards and this was one of the cards we made. As it turns out, I needed two cards shortly after we made them so they came in handy.

Here is how I made the card:

  • Cut a piece of Rococo Rose cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half.
  • Cut a piece of the handwriting paper from the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and adhere to card base.
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3″ x 4 1/2″. Stamp flowers with Merry Merlot and Rococo Rose inks, slightly overlapping them. Stamp leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink. Stamp cross-hatch design with Soft Suede ink. Adhere to a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock cut at 3 1/8″ x 4 5/8″. Adhere to card.
  • On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock stamp sentiment with Soft Suede ink. Cut with the stitched label die from the Smooth Sailing dies. You can use any other similar dies or punches. Add a small Rococo Rose faceted dot. Adhere to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
