Get well soon card

Hi everyone,

Monday has a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge in store, one without rules! It's anything goes this week!

One of my colleague has had a serious operation and I made a card for him to wish him a speedy recovery. I like to make a masculine card but with a few feminine touches. The background I made with the Simon Says Stamp Bubbles Stencil and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. The stencil I used as a stamp. I used the stencil as a masks to make the background slightly darker.

The number stamp from Kaisercraft I stamped with Archival Jet Black Ink and realized I wanted to have it stand out more and have therefore used Clear Embossing Powder on top of it. As the ink was drying it didn't stick everywhere. That gives it a more textured effect. Love that!

As usual I needed some washi tape! And this time I remembered to use my Zigzag Punch with in this case Vellum! I love this punch, and I need to remind myself to use it more often. And the jute bow was essential too. I glued it with a tiny drop of Tacky Glue. This ensures that it remains in place.

The letters are from Cork Adhesive and colored the edges with Black Soot Distress Marker. Then I also have this them a glitter coat with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. You don't see it very well in the picture.

Since I have a lot of colleagues (over 30) and everyone also wanted to wish him a speedy recovery, I've made sheets out of kraft wrapping paper. A simple solution and also very convenient. If I had to make more sheets that wouldn't been a problem. But 8 sheets were sufficient in this case.

To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
