Commissioned Get Well Card






I was asked to make a card for my husband's workplace as a colleague there has had a stroke.  As there might be a great deal of people needing to sign it I've made an A4 star card using my stash of A3 card.  I've used an image from My Craft Studio Countryside Garden along with a patterned backing paper.  The green and yellow papers are from Crafty Ann's Polished Stone Collection.  I have decoupage the main image, added some flowers, brads, sentiment off the computer cut with my Nestabilities die, punched leaves, new card candy I got for Christmas and some ribbon that I also got for Christmas.  I have kept the pages inside plain, just inking the edges of the pages with a chalk ink pad.  I'm hoping that this card with cheer "Ken" up when he/his family are going through this difficult time.

This card fits the following challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday - Use metal - brads for me on this card
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
Scrapbook Sisters - Anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - Anything goes
Paper Romance - You are my sunshine
Paper Cutz - Use metal - brads
Allsorts - Fancy Folds
Craft Your Days Away - Anything goes
Creative Inspirations - Use something new on card/project - ribbon and card candy
CD Sunday - New Year-New You - used new ribbon and card candy.

What a great card Kim and such a good idea to make a star card to allow for signatures rather than an A4.
