Chicken Noodle Soup

Hi, Lois here today with another card made with one of the Black Friday release Get Well dies. There are 12 dies in the release, and all of them are really cute and sure to cheer up anyone who is under the weather!  The entire bundle can be purchased at a special price, plus you can buy individual dies at a discount also.  Some up to 80% off!  That is a great deal!!!   My card today uses two of the new Get Well sets, Chicken Noodle Soup and Get Well Phrase.

To begin my card I cut cardstock for the base:

Red - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Black - 4" x 5 1/4"
White - 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
Gingham patterned paper - 3 7/8" x 1 1/2"

I have found that sometimes it is much easier to cut all the various pieces of a die from white cardstock and then color them.  That is what I did with the Chicken Noodle Soup die.  The sentiment die was cut from black cardstock, which I had backed with a double-sided adhesive sheet.

Using the illustration on the packaging, I colored the various die-cut pieces with Copic markers -- with the exception of the soup can and the spoon.  These I colored with a silver Wink of Stella brush.  I didn't think it was necessary to color the entire soup can because only the top and bottom would eventually show.

Then I constructed the chicken, soup bowl, and soup can.

After I put my card together, I decided that the "CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP" didn't show up very well; so I used an XS Faber-Castell black pen to go over the words.  I was much happier with this.  I then added the three enamel dots.

I was  really impressed with all the parts of this die -- down to the steam and the noodles!  Be sure to check out these very cute Get Well dies, as well as all the others that are on sale.
