Get Well Louie!

Happy Saturday!
So glad you could drop by today!

I was in need of a get well card, so my post today features some fun get well stamps 

I used Get Well Louie G520, and Just Duckin' C476 for this fun little
center easel card.

To create this card, I covered the card front with some designer paper from an old DCWV pad, and set it aside.  

The image was then stamped on white cardstock twice, and once on each of three patterned papers.  

One of the white panels was used as my base. 

The other white panel was where I colored the Louie, and fussy cut all of his pieces!
The beak and feet have glossy accents on them.

Also fussy cut, were the bed frames, pillow, and blanket.

Once the pieces were all cut, they were adhered to the white panel, trimmed, and matted.

Once I knew what size the focal panel was, I cut the card front on each end, and glued the small side strips down on the card, leaving the center section swinging free.  It was scored in half, and the
focal panel adhered to it.

The last step was to stamp and mat the sentiment.
It was adhered to the card using dimensional foam, and happily holds the easel piece upright!

Here is a photo showing the card flat for mailing in an A2 envelope.

Don't forget - about the GI challenges!
A brand new challenge for April went live last week.

Have a great weekend,
Patti J.
