Looking through the 2,316 pictures in my “Cards to Blog About” folder, I’m shocked to see I haven’t ever blogged about this sweet little card. I love Lawn Fawn stamps – partly because the co-founder of the company is a Twitter buddy I got to meet in person 4 years ago, and partly because her product line has the CUTEST illustrations! They match Kellie Marie’s personality: happy, full of joy and smiles.

If you ever find the “On the Mend” stamp set, I encourage you to buy it because we always know someone who isn’t feeling well and this clear acrylic stamp set makes it easy to create “get well soon” cards. I have made so many card with the sweet little tissue box. Here’s one of those cards.  Get Well Soon cardThis is a 4″ x 4″ square card, so it started as an 8″ x 4″ piece of white cardstock. I scored and folded it in half and adhered some patterned scrap paper I’d cut down to size. Ideally, the patterned square would be 3.5″ but I was working with a scrap and it was a little off on the size.

To make the patterned Kleenex tissue box, I stamped the cute image onto patterned paper, and then re-inked and stamped it onto a smaller piece of white cardstock. I think I used a 2.5″ square. Then, I hand trimmed the tissue box out of the patterned paper and lined it up over the image stamped onto white cardstock. I glued it down and that’s why the box is patterned and the tissue is white.

Get Well Soon!I stamped the sentiment below the tissue box and adhered the panel to the card before adding some liquid embossing fluid to make it look like four black brads were anchoring each corner.

Can you see how easy it would be to make several cards like this at one time? I’ve done that, but it’s time to make more! This is a great way to use up scraps of cute paper. Here’s another idea for using up paper scraps: Tiny Thank You Cards from Scrap Paper

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
