Bald Chicks Rock

A brightly coloured Get Well card with a special message inside. Bald Chicks ROCK!


Putting It Together

I've been wanting to make a card for a friend of mine who has recently gone through chemo and surgery but kept procrastinating without much of an idea in my head. I even got this cute digi and the "bald chicks rock" sentiment because I was thinking about her. (The ribbon one I got while thinking about my brother, and still haven't made -that- card either. Sheesh.) 

So, this month's Mood Board for Craftin' Desert Divas gave me the inspiration for a brightly coloured nurse which was just what I needed.

I used Distress ink and waterbrush to colour the Nurse digi. Bright! and festive! I loosely fussy cut the image with a narrow margin around.

I kept the front simple. I used a Way With Words die to cut pink glittery paper to pair with the nurse. I backed the Glittersilk cardstock with adhesive sheet before cutting so it would be easier to add it to the card. For a bit of dimension, I used foam mounting tape for the nurse.

For the inside, I use two stamps from Unity. The block stamp I stamped in Slate and then added a bit of pink to the ribbon. I love that the ribbon is open on this stamp allowing it to be coloured for any ribbon type. I stamped the other sentiment in pink for the ribbon.
