A Couple Get Well Cards

My daughter needed a masculine get well card for a coworker.  She told me this last night while on her way out with friends, and knowing she wanted to take it with her to work at 7am this morning,  I didn't have a whole lot of time to come up with something.   Despite the lateness of the night,  I came up with a couple different choices...
 I made this one with a piece of patterned paper (Hobby Lobby), cutting out one of the kraft colored chevrons.  I DID adhere the patterned paper to a piece of cardstock for some added support and heft BEFORE I cut out the chevron.   I popped up the chevron pieces on a white card, after stamping a cut up feel better soon sentiment that I positioned to follow the chevrons (it's from an OLD Hero Arts stamp set, Big All Time Greetings  CL350).  

The second one I made after pulling the My Favorite Things Whimsical Wishes stamp set from on3 of my boxes of stamps because of the "Get Well Soon" sentiment in the set.  I decided to stamp the row of circles from the set in metallic colors , so I stamped with versa mark, and bronze (Michaels), gold and silver embossed each row.  It only took a few minutes, and a static bag before each row was stamped (to keep static from getting powder where it wasn't supposed to be!).  I had done  another card somewhat similar to this one(a birthay card) a couple years ago, in rainbow, but loved the metallic look for a guy...
 I stamped the sentiment in black and popped up the stamped panel on a black card...tieing the sentiment and card together.  LOVE the metallics!!...
Even though there wasn't much time...it was great fun!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  1. I love the metallic rows of "circles" on the second card. Never thought of doing rainbow metallics and it is such a cool look. Thanks for all the inspiration you share.

  4. I don't do well under pressure. You apparently do great. Love the metallic idea and how you made the words in the first one go with the chevron. Thanks.
