Happy Healing

This is another card for our little guy who is receiving the airplane card for Valentine's Day.  Except this is for the day after Valentine's when he's having a little surgery.  Poor kid!

He's adorable though.  He was cleaning off a shelf in his room the other day and his Mom asked him what he was doing.  Keep in mind, this shelf is a shelf of honor where he keeps his Lego creations and special items.  His answer?  "Well, I'm going to be getting Get Well Cards and I need a place to put them."  Is that great or what?  So now our plan at the office is to make sure he has cards to fill his shelf!

Card Recipe:

Base - Crushed Curry (although it doesn't much look like it in the picture) - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Basic Black - 5 1/4" x 4"
It's My Party - Designer Series Paper (DSP) 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Basic Black (panel) - 5 1/8" x 2 1/8" (I think - I forgot to write down the measurements before giving it to the recipient's Grandmother for mailing).
Crushed Curry - 5" x 2"

I heat embossed the sentiment with White Embossing powder and cut the ends into a flag.

The sentiment is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Thank you for looking in today.

It's Super Bowl Sunday - for those of you that care... lol... I watch for the commercials myself.  I enjoy seeing what they come up with.  Oh, and Go Broncos!  (Since my Arizona Cardinals didn't make it!)

  1. The Crushed Curry makes a cheery get well card. I like the sharp contrast with the black mating. I keep forgetting about embossing white on the black - it looks so sharp. I hope his surgery is pretty minor and has a good, fast, and full recovery.

    1. Thank you Chris! I like the bright with the black too. White embossing is so pretty, but I find myself forgetting to do it much, simply because I always make a mess! LOL

      I think he'll do great with his surgery. He's in good hands!
