Don't you just love it when you have the perfect stamp set for the perfect occasion? When My Favorite Things released this stamp set, I knew I had to have it. I've used it so many times. Even though it's a vinyl stamp set (and I'm not partial to them) I love the images.
I've got a friend who took a spill on some steps and injured himself. He ended up needing surgery. His leg is in a big black immobilizer and needs to keep it elevated. He's got a long road of recovery and therapy ahead of him, so I thought I would try and cheer him with a get well card.
The base of the card is Blue Bayou and the chair color is Sky Blue--two retired In-Colors I'd love to see Stampin' Up! bring back. I inked up the canvas background stamp with Blue Bayou and stamped the chair at a 45 degree angle to the checks. Doesn't it look like fabric? I tried not to make the card too fussy, but manly at the same time. What could be more manly than woodgrain? I stamped the caramel cardstock with the woodgrain background stamp and sponged the edges to give it a little depth. Doesn't the fish just crack you up? I tried making it look like some sort of rainbow trout. I think I failed misrably, but went with it anyway. It's supposed to be a cartoon after all. Some stitched ribbon, brads and grommet complete this fun card.
I hope you enjoyed today's project and thanks for stopping by.
