A Special Get Well


I made this card for my brother-in-law's 86 year old mother, who had hernia surgery last Friday. She is doing extremely well. I worked last weekend, so I popped up to see her on my break on Saturday. She was sitting up in her chair doing a crossword puzzle! I thought maybe they had postponed her surgery, but no, she had it on Friday. She said she didn't like laying around in the bed. So I brought her some flowers on Sunday, and made this card for her on Sunday night. When I went to bring her the card on Monday, she was already moved to the rehab unit. By Tuesday she was walking down the hall. I'm so glad that she is doing so well.

I used SU!'s Fabulous Flowers set on this card, embossing the large flower with Judikins Black Diamond embossing powder. You can see the embossing better in the close up.
The only layer on this card is a piece of BasicGrey from the Stella Ruby collection. I used SU Blue Bayou, Cool Caribbean, and River Rock
to coordinate with the colors in the patterned paper.

I cut out the flower and popped it up with dimensionals. A few triangle eyelets to pick up the petal design in the flower and a bit of River Rock ribbon completes this card.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a great weekend!

Stamps: Fabulous Flowers and Sincere Salutations, both by SU
Ink: Basic Black and Versamark
Paper: River Rock, Blue Bayou, and Cool Caribbean CS, Stella Ruby DP by BasicGrey
Extras: Triangle Eyelets, River Rock double stitched ribbon, SU keytag punch, Judikins Black Diamond embossing powder
