As is my usual method, I went into the craft room to tackle a few specific projects, then I came out with something completely different. This:
I ... don't know how it happened. It all started with an idea that I needed to use navy, white and kraft together. I had a white Polaroid left from another project that didn't happen, and I had new cloud dies from Simon Says Stamp, and I found myself hmmmmm-ing a lot. The dies are textured, so of course I grabbed some textured paper from The Heaplet and obliterated the original texture for the cloud texture. At least it's paper (or really thin card stock) so the layering worked out.
I distressed the center of the die-cut with Distress Pumice Stone, then added the clouds so they hung outside the frame. I had cut a third die since we're supposed to do things in odd numbers, but I couldn't figure out how to add it until I finally mostly hid it behind the top of the die-cut frame. Now it's there, but not too in-your-face.
Since this turned out to be a very gloomy card, I gave it a Feel Better Soon sentiment. I don't have the dies, so I fussy-cut the banner.
I'm pretty sure anyone I send this to will just get sicker by looking at all the doom and gloom. This is why one should make happy cards for Get Well cards. I so rarely follow the rules, though.
Oh, that just reminded me: Many years ago, we had a Twitter contest to make Get Ill Soon cards. You know, to send to someone you don't want to see around the office for a while, so you wish they'd get sick and stay home. Please hold ... *searches archives* ... here it is: Get Ill Soon. My God, we even had a blog hop with a banner.
Okay, now I go need to make what I started out to make. Thanks for stopping by!
Stuff I used: misc navy textured paper, misc white card stock, and the following:
