Get Well Soon {Mended Heart}

Today I have a get well card to share with you.  The recipient had a heart procedure done so I thought the band-aid over the heart was appropriate.  :)  I've had the Lawn Fawn Get Well Soon stamp set and coordinating dies for a couple months and have been wanting a chance to play with them.  This is the first time I was able to get them inky.  I colored the images with Copics and then cut them out with the dies. They were also given a coat of Wink of Stella.  I also used the Lawn Fawn Heart Lawn Cuts for the heart.  It is cut out of white cardstock and also colored with Copics.  The heart and bandaid are popped up on a heart embossed panel that is matted with a couple Spellbinders die cuts. I used my recent "go-to" sketch from Dawn.  A few rhinestones finish it off.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and is stamped on a banner die cut and popped up with foam tape.  The card stays pretty flat so it was easy to mail.

Tip:  Have a go-to sketch so that when you need a card in a hurry you don't have to put a lot of thought into the card design.  Changing up the papers, stamps and embellishments will be enough to keep them from all looking the same. Keep a note in your craft area of the sizes you need to cut your various layers and making a card will be quick and easy.  This is also a great way to use up scraps.
