A Summery Get Well Card by Jessica

Today we have Jessica with us to share an adorable card!

Good morning! Jess here with a CAS and (apparently) subtle get-well card for our current Cheerful Get Well challenge! I was all excited with my concept and then my husband walked by, looked at my card, and said “I don’t get it.” Sigh…hopefully it makes sense to someone else besides me! 😉

Happy Summer is an older Lawn Fawn set but it’s always been one of my favorites. Despite absolutely hating ants in real life, I think they’re adorable in stamp form! And the idea behind my card is that one of my tiny ants isn’t feeling well so the other ants told him to take care and rest while they carried the watermelon (and him) onto their next destination!

I started by stamping the watermelon and ants from Happy Summer onto a piece of white cardstock with Copic friendly ink. Then I colored my watermelon with Copic markers. I used R46, R27, and R24 for the flesh of the watermelon, YG21 for the yellow part of the rind, and G28, G17, and G05 for the rind. I stamped part of the sentiment from Hang in There and the rest of the sentiment and the heart from Get Well Soon. I trimmed the sides of the panel down and adhered it to the Rudolph plaid paper from the Perfectly Plaid Christmas patterned paper. Finally I added a layer of glossy accents to the red of the watermelon for a little extra shine!

And that’s my subtle get well card, ha! You have a few more days to enter our Cheerful Get Well challenge and a new challenge will start on Monday! Thanks so much for visiting and have a fabulous weekend!
