Get Well Card
I will be submitting this card to Quick Quotes Design Team.
I made this card for a friend/coworker who is sick and has been in hospital and rehab for a few months.
Cut the White card stock for card base- folded to make 5.5" x 4.25" card. Cut 2 pieces of cloud paper to fit front and inside of card – glued in place. Picked angel and frame design on Gypsy from Christmas Cartridge for angel and Fancy Frames Cartridge for Frame.
With Cricut cut out angel and shadow of wings from gold shimmer paper. Cut out wings and angel shadow from glitter paper. Glued glitter wings on gold wing shadow. Glued Gold angel on glitter angel shadow with adhesive but also used a few mini glue dots (only thing found to maintain hold on glitter paper). Glued angel onto wings with mini glue dots.
Used Spectrum Noir markers to highlight face of angel. Cut White shimmer paper using Cricut for larger frame. Cut blue shimmer paper with Critcut for detailed frame. Used inside of blue frame to outline opening on white shimmer paper using a pencil and cut opeing out with blade and erased pencil lines. Glued blue frame to edges of opening on white shimmer paper.
Placed Stickle along inside of blue frame- let dry. With raised glue foam dots on back of white shimmer paper placed on cloud paper on front of card. Then glued angel in center of opening. Difficult to see in picture but frame is popped out from angel – making angel stand out on clouds.
For inside of card - Printed out quote from computer onto Laser Vellum Paper and cut out using Sizzix Frame die with Big Shot machine. Glued on inside of card on cloud paper.

I have a large stock of paper from years of scrapbooking that I did not keep track of suppliers or where purchased.
When making cards I use a lot of paper from saved scraps from other products - do not keep track of suppliers/where purchased
