Get Well Cards

Unfortunately several of my family members have had some poor health issues recently so I've been making "Get Well" cards. On the bright side, at least they are on the mend ;)

For this card I used a Lily-Boo digi image that you can pick up HERE for FREE. All of the patterned papers are from the Pool House wall paper pack from Your Memories Here. I cut along the scalloped print of the olive paper and it gives the effect of a border punch!

This card also features the versatility of Pool House wall paper packs. For this one I made a masculine card using the front and back side of the blue paisley paper for my base and larger mat. Then I embossed a piece of blue card stock with the Herringbone Cuttlebug embossing folder (which are on sale right now at YMH). The "H" is a chipboard letter I covered with some more of the Pool House paper, this time the olive paisley. Then I gave it a glossy coating with some UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel). A strip of crocheted lace trim from Prima finishes it off. The inside reads "Happy to hear you're on the mend". Since this card is for an older man I wanted to keep it clean without any images or frills.
