Best Wishesby Kathy Berger
I needed to make a card for a dear male friend who is going to have surgery this week. I saw a card made by Debbie Hughes on Pinterest that screamed out to me as the perfect card. This is my version of that card.
I started with the Lattice Flower Square Panel cut out of kraft card stock layered onto a square of kraft the same size. I added a layer of white just a tiny bit bigger than the kraft layer, and popped it up on my white card with foam tape.
I stamped my sentiment (from Frantic Stamper's Arched Banner and Sentiments Clear Stamp Set) with Art Print Brown Memories ink. Note that though the sentiment is arched in the set, because it is a clear stamp I could make it lie straight on my acrylic block. One stamp; multiple ways to use it!
I made a plain white bow using the Small Solid Paper Bow die. I wrapped some fine jute cording around its center and tied it in a bow. I glued it in place at the lower right of my lattice flower panel.
To finish things off I added a tiny pearl to each of the flowers' centers.
I hope you will enjoy my version of Debbie's card. I also hope it will brighten the day of my friend while he is recovering from his surgery.
Here is a last look at my card.
