Get Well Soon card

I felt like making something bright and cheery for someone special who's in hospital... my kids can write on the inside and decorate the envelope before giving it to her... it's a quick and easy card done on my Gypsy.

Well it took a little longer than it should due to the multi page option not working and the open as template cutting things that it shouldn't... so it's missing a few bits I would have liked to add!!!
(Hurry up Provocraft and update the Gypsy software!!!)

I used Hello Kitty Greetings for the flower
Mickey Font for the letters.
Paper is really glittery so it was really hard to photograph...
Next time I'll use a different font... Mickey is just a habit... the card is actually a bit flimsy...
Since making shaped cards is new for me, I'll be able to work on that!!!

Happy Crafting & Thanks for Looking!



  1. was the paper shimmery from the outset or did you spray it with the the < insert name here of the stuff lols > .. in the spritzer bottles?

    sorry I didn't end up coming over to play more.. really would have loved to .. you know.. kids.. * rolls eyes *

  2. I love glittery paper Sharon. Maybe a double layer of cardstock as the base would make it tougher. Still telling myself that I don't want a Gypsy :)

  3. Sharon, how big is this card? It looks big, like will it fit in an envelope, or is it more perfect for a stand up card in a hospital room, which would be AWESOME! This is a beautiful cheery card. I might have to scraplift it, although I don't have this font cartridge and I think that is what makes this card so perfect!
