Get Well Soon

Hi Bloggers.

Another 3 panel card today but a bit different as the centre panel is stamped -

The background is a piece of Coconut White Card run through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Creative Expressions Fine Finials Embossing Folder. I've inked around the edges with the CS Pretty Ink Pink Colour Cloud Blending Ink using a Smoothie.

I cut the outer die in Sue Wilson's Butterflies in Flight Die Set out of Coconut White Card twice. I cut the main 2 dies in the set out together twice out of Coconut White Card. I removed the outer die and inked through the remaining die with Pretty in Pink. I cut all 4 of the butterflies in the same die set out of Baby Pink Card twice and then glued them at the back of the decorative die cuts. I then added them to the plain white background die cuts.

For the centre panel, I stamped the CE Dragonfly Mini Striplet Stamp (drawn by John Lockwood) onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I coloured in using Distress Markers. I'm trying to limit myself to this years colours as an experiment. I used Cracked Pistachio on the leaves. On the flowers and dragonflies, I used Carved Pumpkin and Abandonned Coral. I cut the panel out using the outer die from the Butterflies in Flight Die Set and inked through the die with Pretty in Pink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Wild Rose Studio Everyday Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Sue's Pierced Flags Die Set and inked through the die with Pretty in Pink. I cut the next sized flag die out of Baby Pink Card. I added a flower from my demo bits box which was made using Sue's Diagonal Foldover Flower Die Set and felt from the Wedding Felt Pack.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
