A Card for Mary

This card was created to hopefully cheer up a very dear friend of mine who had got herself ready to endure several weeks of being incapasitated, only to be sent home from hospital on Thursday not knowing if she was ever going to get her problem sorted out.

To make this card I used a Simon and Lola stamp called "My little Friend", I stamped it onto white card and painted it with my Artquest watercolour paints. After it had dried I cut it out with my Oval Nestabilitie Die and mounted this onto a piece of Pink Crystaline Card (one of the Glitter Girls), that had been cut with the large Classic Oval Scalloped Nestabilitie Die.

The base card was created out of piece of light green card I had left from my last card its about 6" square, along the side and bottom edges I have embossed two lines, and between the two I have stamped with my Stamp Tapestry Ginger Hearts Set, a border of leaves, hearts and flowers just to give it a pretty edge.

I then punched a ribbon tag out of a piece of the Crystaline card and mounted on top a piece of white card, stamped a greeting onto it, then threaded a piece of green organza ribbon through and cut along the fold and attached the ribbon to the inside, and on the other side I cut two lines and threaded the ribbon behind the border around the edge and attached this end also to the inside of the card.

The mounted stamped image was stuck to the centre of the card and two flowers were put above the image to the left to finish it of.
