Hi Friends and happy Thursday. This week has been flying by and I haven't really had a ton of time to play in my stamp room. BUT, I was commissioned to make two get well cards for my local ringette association, so I took some time this morning to create the card I'm about to share with you all. I love when I'm asked to come up with something specific; but still have freedom to design what I think will work best. So that's what I did here.
For this card, I did pull out a retired stamp set, Simply Sports. I've hung onto it simply for the fact that my son plays hockey and lacrosse; both of which have images represented in the set, and I'd be able to use it for years to come when giving coaches and bench staff thank you gifts at the end of the year. Little did I know that I'd actually be able to adapt the hockey image to that of a ringette player! I paired it with the perfect sentiment from the new Through it Together stamp set. It just fits the situation so well and, of course, the inside of the card reads "get well soon". I'll post a complete list of the supplies I used at the bottom of the post.
Basic White card stock base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Poppy Parade: 4 3/4" x 3 1/2"
Pacific Point: 3" x 3"
Basic White: 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
Basic White: 2" x 3"
Cut card stock for base and fold in half. Burnish edge with Bone folder for crisp fold.
Cut Pacific Point to size and attach to Poppy Parade using Stampin' Dimensionals.
On Basic White square, use Stampin' Write markers to ink up image in desired colours. If one solid colour, use ink pad of choice. To create ringette stick, simply do not ink the blade of the hockey stick. For the ring, only ink the bottom circle of the puck. Attach to Pacific Point with Seal.
Wrap length of white baker's twine around the Poppy Parade layer, below the stamped image, twice and secure with seal.
On Basic White, stamp sentiment. I used Stampin' Write markers once again to be able to highlight "comeback" and "stronger" but you can stamp all in one colour. Cut out using smallest die from Scalloped Contours Dies and attach to base, over twine, with Dimensionals.
Stamp "get well soon" on inside of card.
This card was super easy to create and it's a layout design that has served me well over my many years of crafting. I hope you find some inspiration here.
