Crafty Secrets Get Well

TGIF! It's been a long, busy week. We are expecting house guests next weekend, so I have been in a cleaning and straightening up frenzy when I haven't been working. As my mother always likes to say, there's nothing better for a house than a good company scare....so true!


Earlier this month I posted a card folder that I had made for my mother for her birthday. The folder contained four get well cards. The first two cards I posted were both made using Papertrey Ink stamps. Today I am showing the other two cards, which were made using Crafty Secrets' Feeling Yucky set. I love the whimsical, vintage feel of this set. This first card has the little nurse with her ginormous hypodermic needle. I think she has a sinister little look in her eye! She sort of reminds me of the nurse who gave me my flu shot this week...my arm is still sore ;-)

The background paper is from Graphic 45's Renaissance Faire collection and is called Romantique. The little nurse and her scary needle were colored with Copic markers and I added Glossy Accents to the syringe. The background of the stamped panel was airbrushed while it was still in the die.

For the inside of the card, I added a matted strip of the patterned paper and a sentiment from the Feeling Yucky set.


This second card has the weepy little duck from the set, along with some patterned paper containing a similar little tweety bird. It's actually Easter paper, but what the heck! The duck was also colored with Copic markers and Glossy Accents was applied to his tears.

The band across the middle of the card is a strip of the same paper I used for the butterfly birthday card I posted last Sunday, mounted on a scalloped-edge strip of coordinating card stock. The triple-looped bow was made with May Arts' silk ribbon, using the Bow Easy tool.

For the inside of this card, I added a small strip of the patterned paper, making sure to include one of the little chicks, matted on several layers of card stock, including one that was cut using the Martha Stewart Checkerboard border punch. The sentiment is from the Feeling Yucky set.

That's about it for me. Hope you've had a good week. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Such cute cards! I love how you always make the inside of the card special, too.

It's probably a bad sign, but my kids would always ask "Who's coming over?" when I cleaned house.
