Cool Blue Get Well


I need more Get Well cards in my stash, so I made 6 of these today.  The originally-planned stamp was a little bandage with a face on it, from the Stampin' Up! set called Wellness Wishes.  The bandage is more 'cutesy' and it really wanted to be used, but after this card was assembled, cutesy just didn't seem right.  Thankfully, this set offers different styles for a get well message.

Remember my sympathy card here?  I relied upon that sketch layout once again because it is easy.  But instead of using one large piece of embossed cardstock on the left of the card, I divided it up into four equal sections of differently-embossed pieces.

My inspiration today is here, from the EtsyInspired Challenge:
Block Prints from Global Child Collection / Etsy




And here, at The Play Date Cafe:

We might get some rain here today in New Jersey.  We need it pretty badly.

Have yourself a wonderful day!

Happy Stamping,
Colleen

So cool and soothing, Colleen!! I love how you embossed each colored panel. The embossed patterns add so much richness. I agree that this sentiment was the better choice for your sophisticated layout :)
