Under the weather

Hopefully none of you are feeling under the weather? If you are I hope you feel better soon.
Today's card was a request from work for a colleague who is poorly at the moment.
I used the Clearly Besotted "Under the weather" stamp set and stamped out four of the characters and due to my stash die fussy cut them out rather than purchasing the dies.  I coloured them in flat colours with my copics rather than spend time shading them and stamped one of the sentiments from the set on a 6" square card base. I die cut out the large square with tattered essential square dies and also smaller squares of turquoise and white card. I mounted the largest square on 1mm foam tape to add a little dimension. I was going to have the squares lined up in the quarters of the blue card, but couldn't be bothered to measure them out and so I embraced the jaunty angles! I'd been getting withdrawal symptoms from faux stitching and so out came the fine liner pen. I stuck the characters on with 1mm foam tape to add a little more dimension.
Right, a commenting I will go! See you over at Erika's tomorrow for an oldie (but possibly not goodie).

  8. Hi Cara,
    what a very cute card, and wonderfully designed as usual.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  9. Awwww that is the sweetest get well card ever!
    I never buy the matching dies, I'd rather cut them out myself and buy something else with the money I've 'saved' :)

  10. Hey Cara, this is such a lovely get well card. I spent majority of the week feeling under the weather...I love the jaunty angles, a superb way to minimise the work. I love having dies for my stamps, but it is not always financially viable..So I wait for them to go on sales if possible. Cx
