Get Well

Seems like I have been in need of get well cards this summer!  Third friend with a I chose peaceful colors for the small hexagonal.  The panel was embossed with a Stampin' Up! folder, but most other products are Close To My Heart.  The inks I used are Pear, Glacier and Twilight to stamp the back of the embossed piece. Sentiment from the Sincere Expressions set was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black. I used the chevron punch on each corner piece and backed it with some glitter tape for a bit of sparkle.  The card base was made with Twilight card stock...though it looks more lie Crystal Blue in this photo. Greens are not as washed out in real life either.

Yesterday my desktop computer (which is 10 years old) asked me to update a program...and somehow that installation affected my Microsoft photo import/edit.  I could not figure out how to import from my camera, and after several hours with some frustration language, I gave up and tried my newer (2 year old) laptop.  I can import and crop.  That's it for now!  No savvy about color...I'll figure it out eventually or my grandson will visit and show me.  He's nine and very smart!!♥

  1. Awesome! Love that punched border on either side... very cool card!

  2. Congratulations again on last week's Top 3. This is another card you can be proud of, awesome job. I did my hexagons, but too much like the sketch so submitted another one but going out of the box a little.

    1. Again, wow, congrats on winning one of the Top 3, well deserving. Your's was one of the most unique with those corner borders.

  3. Cool, soothing colors and a great card! Love your take on the AHSC sketch! just the perfect touch of shimmer too!
