Get Well Soon Loving Heart with Scallop Pinpoint Loving Heart Cutouts
by Vicki Finger

Hello everyone.  Vicki here today with a card that I seem to be needing a lot of these days; A Get Well Soon card.  

I wanted to use some of my pretty spring papers from Memory Box to pull a get well card together.  I also want to layer them up so I pulled out my Scallop Pinpoint Loving Heart Cutout Dies because the shape is an exact match (Memory Box did that on purpose)  to the Get Well Soon Loving Heart Die.  

To begin I selected one of the Spring Plaids from the Springtime Bouquet Paper Pack.  Then I selected 3 additional sheets of paper from the Cottage Stripes and Dots Paper Pack in coordinating colors to the plaid.  In this case, that was pastel blue stripe, pastel pink stripe, and pastel lavender stripe.

I stacked the 4 papers together and put a bit of low tack tape on each side to keep them lined up.  Next, I took a wide piece of low tack tape and aligned the 4 Scallop Pinpoint Loving Heart dies inside the other until I had all four of them centered.  First I cut the paid piece which would be my top layer.  

Next, I removed the largest die and cut my Pastel Pink Paper with the three remaining dies, using the first cutout to make sure I had it aligned the same.   Next, I removed the Plaid Paper and another die then used the pink cutout to line up my dies in the same spot and run it through my die cut machine. I did this until all four layers of the patterned paper were cut with a heart in the center.  This gives you the stacked look that you see in the photo.  At the bottom layer, I put a scrap of cardstock behind the smallest heart, so it appears that you actually have 5 layers.  This is one reason that I chose the text weight of the patterned paper versus using thick cardstock.  All of my cardstock is at least #110, so it would have been a lot hard to cut that many layers.  

For the Get Well Soon Loving Heart, I chose Gold Foiled cardstock.  I was also able to cut some really small hearts from the scraps of that gold paper to add to the font of the card.  I have a little group of dies that sits in a magnetic bowl on my desk that are all really tiny and I don't know the brand, but I love to use these little hearts on lots of cards, especially right now.  

Because there are so many layers, be sure to use a heavyweight cardstock #110 or higher) for your card base.  If you don't, it will just keep falling flat. 

You could also add foam tape between each layer, but because my card is actually going into the mailbox, I kept my layers flat.  

You could make some beautiful Easter Cards in this style.  I just happened to need a Get Well Soon card today.  I hope my design gives you ideas for creating your own version of whatever card you need today.

Get Well Soon
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_0601 (1)

Good morning everyone!  This months MB blog challenge is Hearts, so I created a get well card using a few new products.  

To make this card I die cut the Get Well Soon Loving Heart Die from a piece of white cardstock.  I created a watercolor background which I glued behind the heart opening.  Then I glued the die cut back into the opening.  

I used watercolor paper and stamped the flower twice from the new Friendship Floral Heart stamp set. Once the flowers were painted and fussy cut, I used foam tape to adhere them to the card.


I spattered the card front with gold ink and used foam adhesive to glue it to a white card base.


That's it for today!  I hope you have a creative and fun week!

Hello! Michelle here.  I've been itching to ink up the stamp set, Friendship Floral Heart!  I opted for one of the smaller floral cluster and used it to stamp the background. I shaded the flowers and colored the background with Copic Markers in shades R00, R21, R32, R43; RV10, RV02, RV04; YR24; YG11, YG61; BG96. I splattered some white and gold paint and stickles glitter glue. 


I die cut Hello Banner Script Die, with a metallic adhesive backed paper I adhered to cardstock before cutting.  I inked up two strips of cardstock with the same Copic colors to match the flowers. I embossed the sentiments with rose gold embossing powder.  


After I assembled the card I scattered some sequins. Thanks for stopping by for peek! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Get Well Soon
by Melissa Rusk

Today I decided to take a little break from Christmas cards and wanted to share a get well card I made for a friend recently.


I stamped the beautiful iris from the new Sentimental Iris stamp set and colored it with Copic Markers. I die cut it with the coordinating die set.

To create the background of my card I used the new Distress Oxide inks in the colors Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers. I pressed one of the colors onto my craft mat and sprayed the ink with water a few times. Then I pressed my water color paper into the ink, keeping it to one side of my paper. Then I dried the first layer with a heat tool and started the process again with the second color. I repeated the inking and drying process with the two colors until I got a background that I liked.


I stamped the get well soon from the same stamp set and then put the card together. To finish it off I created some dots with Wendy Vecchi's enamel accents.

Thanks for stoping by the blog today!

In My Prayers
by Melissa Rusk

Happy Saturday! Today I have a sweet get well card to share with you using some of the latest release from Memory Box. Let's get started!


For this card I used the Leafy Ring die and cut it from white paper. I put some green card stock behind it to make the leaves pop. I die cut the Perky Prayers die in a purple and it fits perfectly in the middle of the Leafy Ring die. I then stamped in purple a saying from the Prayers Sentiments stamp set in a coordinating purple ink. 


I glued this on to two different purple pieces of paper on my card base. For the gems I didn't have any in the right color so I used some clear gems and colored them with a purple Copic marker to make it all match. 

Thanks for stopping by the blog, have a great weekend!

Feel Better Soon
by Sherry Hester

Hi everyone! Hope this has been a great week so far! I thought I would share a get well card this time around. This little bunny just looks like he cares!

Get Well Soon - 1

I cut a piece of white card stock 5-1/4" x 3-3/4", and softly sponged Peeled Paint and Faded Jeans Distress inks on the left side. I die cut the Sketch Bunny Background die in white and inked it with Old Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks. The Bamboo Shoot was also cut in white and sponged lightly with Peeled Paint.

Get Well Soon - 3

I adhered the bamboo shoots to the back of the bunny, then added foam tape so that the bunny and the shoots would pop.  I stamped the phrase using two stamps from the Hope and Thanks set in Versafine Black Onyx ink, added three of the mini butterflies and scattered a few sequins. I then mounted this piece to the card base with foam tape.

Get Well Soon - 2

Enjoy the rest of your week, and thanks so much for stopping by!
