Feel Better Cards


It's Monday! What can I say...back to sub after 9 days of sleeping in over Spring Break. Ug. I have burning, puffy eyes and coffee breath! Let's hope that my makeup, freshly pressed outfit and mints disguise my inner self today! LOL...it's bound to get better right?

These cards use up another sheet of my one sheet wonders that I did over the weekend. I wanted a very soft and subtle feel for these get well cards so I used white pigment ink to sponge all the edges. The background is made with a SU! jumbo wheel, and the butterfly images and sentiments are from Paper Trey Ink, linked at the right. Card layout inspired by a card in the current issue of Paper Crafts magazine.

Tip of the day: If you have favorite patterned papers that you can't bear to part with, purchase two sheets. Hoard one if you must, then use small snippets from the other sheet, like what I did with the green polka dot paper. It makes your paper go a long way. Oh, and go back to bed!

Absolutely lovely Michelle! Love the soft and pretty background. You're cracking me up with the 'advise for hoarders'. I think that I'll take baby steps and purchase 3 sheets (2 sheets to hoard and 1 to use).

These cards are wonderful. I love what you did with the white sponged on the edges! I think this is the first time I've seen white used for that and it's awesome, TFS.

These cards are just beautiful! I found your blog and so now I guess I will have to get the butterfly set from Papertrey Ink. I thought I had enough butterflies, but you have really made them a "need"!
