Sending Well Wishes with Painted Posies

While an adorable, out-of-state friend is recovering from a knee surgery, I knew I couldn’t take something over or help with transportation during her recovery. What I could to, though, is wish her a speedy recovery with a sweet card. I went straight to The Fungeon and designed this card for her:

It’s the Painted Posies 3D Embossing Folder, though, that really steals the show here. The beautiful, intricate images extend over the two panels – I love this folder. Here’s a look at the Painted Posies 3D Embossing Folder:

The sentiment is stamped from the A Fish & A Wish stamp set and cropped with the Double Oval Punch. I wrapped the Calypso Coral band (doubled-up so it would hold up in the mail) with Linen Thread for a third element with a natural finish (the base, the sentiment and the thread). I tied off the thread on the face of the card (just under the sentiment so that the strands come together at the well-wishing sentiment.

Just one more layer…I had finished this card with just an outside layer of Calypso Coral but knew I needed a touch of white somewhere on the card. I thought about a white sentiment oval but, ultimately, decided to add a thin border of white around the focal base, followed by a Calypso Coral border. That little pop of white gave me exactly what I wanted to lighten things up a bit.

I love this mix of “oranges” – Pale Papaya, Calypso Coral and Cajun Craze is a combination I’ve used before (and will definitely use again). If you like this mix of Pale Papaya, Calypso Coral and Cajun Craze as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
