It's time for more mass production cards for my stash basket. My *get well* section is GONE, not a single card left!! I always love to reach for Karen Lockhart's images for my get well cards. Her slippers, robe, socks and sentiments are just perfect for get well type cards. Today, I paper pieced the slippers using October Afternoon patterned paper. Simply stamp the image with black ink, cut out with fine tip scissors and adhere to your cards with pop dots. The slippers are very simply drawn so that you can use them for male or female or even kiddy slippers. Zoom in on the photo below to see the Polka Dot Basics background I stamped on white cardstock, then cut and embossed layers using Spellbinder's Rectangle and Scalloped Rectangle Die Templates. A little vintage looking lace finishes off the focal images.
I added some shading to my slippers using the Copic Sketch marker colors below. The shading and grey shadows add just a little depth to the images.
Here's the trio of sentiments I used below. The top two are Lockhart sentiments and the bottom is a combo of two sentiments from Vintage Picnic Sentiments. Tied buttons finish off my cards.
I love to just sit and look at my little stacks of cards when I'm done. It feels good to replenish my stash of cards....it means that cards are being sent out to friends and loved ones! I recently saw the girls' hair stylist and she said she received at least 5 or 6 of my cards for her baby showers. I love to hear that! I hope you get some time to stamp soon.......make 'em and mail 'em girls!!
