January is a great time to stamp general occasion cards for the coming year, especially sympathy and get well cards. Because these are unexpected occasions and you won't have advance notice, it's a good time to create a few of these greeting cards now, to have ready just in case.
I chose an image from the gorgeous new stamp set, Bordering on Romance, for my focal image and colored it using classic inks and an Aqua Painter. The image is popped onto a hand cut "frame" embossed with the Designer Frames Embossing Folder.
The frame sits atop a Poppy Parade panel enhanced with a simple strip of Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration Sneak Peek). The panels were mounted on Naturals White card stock, spritzed and sponged with Soft Suede ink.
Tying it all up is Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon paired with delicate Calypso Coral Organdy Ribbon (Sale-a-bration Sneak Peek) and finished with a coordinating Printed Designer Brad.

I don't know if today's get well card will "cure" someone, but I think it just might perk them up - yes?
Hope you're feeling perky yourself.
