Poppies and Butterflies

Hello, everyone.  I made this card for someone in the hospital. Sometimes "Get Well Soon" doesn't cut it, so I like "Thinking of You."  I wanted this card to be bright and cheerful.

I started with a white card base, which I covered with green cardstock, onto which I layered some poppy-patterned paper.  I stamped the sentiment on the patterned paper and embellished with a chipboard butterfly, a butterfly charm, and two punched butterflies embellished with red gems.  I tied the charm with purple twine.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamp:  Sentiment (Technique Tuesday)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Patterned paper:  Rowena Stott
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Punches:  Unmarked/unknown, probably Michaels or dollar store
  • Accents:  Chipboard butterfly, charm, twine, gems (Dollarama)

This is such a great card! I totally agree that "thinking of you" is better than "get well soon", it shows that you love the person and not thinking he is sick! The card is so cheerful and bright. Great work! Regards, TokBobok
