Get Well card

Greg emailed me yesterday asking me to create a Get Well Soon card for a colleague who had broken his leg. Sure, I said, no problem. I’ll just whip something up! Ha!! If you ask me to make a card for a girl I’m good. Flowers, pink, lace, hearts, butterflies, glitter, done! But ask me to make a card for the masculine of the species and I am stumped.

Stampin’ Up!s new Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper to the rescue! It’s gorgeous kraft based card stock that’s been embossed with a variety of designs in brown. Here, take a look ..

Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper

I took the wood grain pattern, ran it through my Big Shot and came up with this …

The stamp set is called Word Play and is a great set for all occasions. I also used a piece of First Edition Specialty DSP and the argyle pattern stamp from Patterned Party on some Pool Party card stock to create extra texture. Backing the sentiment is a piece of International Bazaar DSP. This pack has some great patterns and colours that I think are going to be good for masculine layouts and cards. I can’t wait to use more of it on future projects!

There are more layers here than I normally would use but I really like the end product. Thanks for stopping by. Links to all the products featured on this card are listed below.
