Today I needed an extra special Get Well Card for my grandson, Aiden, who broke his arm yesterday. To Kids BIG is better so I fashioned a card that was 4" x 8" and included playful punch art. I choose 4" x 8" because it was a size listed on my Envelope Punch Board and I wanted to make a matching Envelope.
Aiden and his Mama
When I was using my Word Bubble Framelits last I noticed that the one of them looked a lot like a cloud, which was perfect for today's card. Then I embossed my "clouds with the Decorative Dots Embossing folder (Sale-a-bration Freebie available January 28-March 31, 2014) to add a billowy look. I cased the punch art sun idea from Artisan Award Winner, Jennifer Timko. What's the sun punch art secret? 1-3/4' Circle Punch (Retro Fresh Designer Paper) & Banner Punch (Sale-a-bration Freebie available January 28-March 31, 2014).
What do you think? Does the Argle Embossed Paper look a bit like raindrops? I just love fun designs on rainboots. This set is from the Bootiful Occasions stamp set.
Like I said, this card needed to be extra special, so I went all out on the inside too. In the order in which they appear: Retro Fresh Designer paper, Countless Sayings 2 Photopolymer stamp set, Tag It stamp set, Retro Fresh This & That Designer Washi Tape.
Do you think he will like his Big Colorful envelope? I, of course, made my envelope with my envelope punch board. For a DIY Envelope Tutorial check out my Envelope Punch Board Tutorial
