Get Well Soon


It's Anja here again. Today I made a card for my brother. He was sick for the last few days and went to the doctors yesterday. He had his appendix removed last night. Luckily everything is OK with him, but he will have to stay in the hospital for a few more days. So I had him in my mind when I was making this card. It's actually a simple one. I just combined a few different dies from the latest Cottage Cutz release.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Bear Patient, Nurse Puppy, First Aid Kit, Get Well Phrase),
- Distress Oxides (Black Soot, Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo, Fired Brick, Broken China),
- white card base (10x21 cm),
- white and craft card stock for die cuts,
- patterned paper (9,7x20,7 cm),
- black pen,
- paper glue.

First I die cut all the small pieces. I used craft card stock for darker pieces (like the bear and the bottles) and white card stock for lighter pieces. I colored everything with Distress Oxides. When I had everything colored the way I liked it, I glued it together.

I cut a piece of patterned paper for the background. It is a bit smaller than the card base.

I glued the patterned paper on the card base and then added the bear and all the bottles and other pieces of first aid kit.

I first planned to add the get well phrase on the front side of the card, but taught it was to crowded. So I decided to put it inside instead. 

Now I'm on my way to visit my brother. Thank you for visiting and have a nice Sunday.
Anja Z.
