Hello, crafty friends! I hope you are doing much better than I am because I have a cold. It’s not the worst one I’ve ever had, but just bad enough to keep me sniffling. So while I’ve been recovering, I scouted around a few of my favorite sites and spotted a really darling Get Well card from Creative Team designer Kim Singdahlsen. It made me feel better just looking at it, so I’m pretty sure whoever gets this one will be on the mend soon, too!
I was really drawn in by Kim’s clean and simple design using Toffee Cardstock — when making Clean & Simple cards, I sometimes forget that I don’t need to always use white. The kraft color really goes well with the succulents that Kim colored up (from our Simply Succulents stamp & die combo) and I just adore the little terra cotta pot she added out after die-cutting with the included dies. That little bit of orange is such a nice pop of color! And placing them over a bit of striped paper to act like a ‘shelf’ of sorts is terrific.
Here’s a close up of Kim’s garden of succulents. I love the coloring on these to bring out the unusual colors of the cacti. These speak to me because our garden is filled with succulents (because they are much harder for me to kill off!) The three little enamel shapes are a nice touch, too!
I hope Kim’s card brought you a ray of sunshine like it did for me! If you are looking for more Get Well and Sympathy inspiration, be sure to check out this week’s TE Newsletter HERE.
