Get Well Blooms
Happy Wednesday! It's "hump day" and I couldn't be happier. My hubby will be home from his business trip tomorrow. For today though, I have a new card to show you.
We always hope for wellness for ourselves and our loved ones but sometimes that just isn't possible. For those times, a get well card is always a nice touch. E-mail has become the way of the world but an actual piece of snail mail can really perk up a sniffly day. So on with the details!
I think this design is pretty simple. I used the SU 5 petal flower punch and one of my favorite stamp sets, Mindy's Flowers, by Autumn Leaves. These images are also available in digital form at Designer Digitals. For the semi-circle tag, I did have to use a brad to hold it down and keep it attached. With thicker paper, the fold just wouldn't stay down. For the rest of the supplies, I included them below. if you have any other questions, post a comment and I will fill you in!
