Feel Better

** 1/6/15 Winner at Mod Squad Challenge Blog! **

Hello again! My crafty mojo is still kickin' butt today so I figured I'd take advantage of it! I played a little in the scrap room this morning and created a fancy fold card embellished with gold that I'm going to enter into a few challenges. I'm really missing some of my online crafting buddies and feel the need to reconnect!

This get well card is my first-ever stretch card and I just l.o.v.e. how it turned out. So simple and so much fun. It's a Silhouette cut file containing two base pieces and eight panels in varying lengths. Most of the base work was done for me... all I had to do was pick out some cardstock and some fun coordinating papers, and let the Silhouette do the rest! Assembling it and embellishing it with lots of gold stuff was kinda fun (wink-wink)! ;)

I stamped the vertical greeting and the flower image in Memento Espresso Truffle ink, cut them with SB dies and layered them on additional die cuts. I used gold mirror cardstock behind the sentiment and added a hummingbird charm. I used several loops of gold cording behind the stamped flower oval and popped it up on dimensional pads.

I also used some gold glitter Gumdrops and some teeny-tiny Dot Sparklers with gold trim.

Here's an angle to the right... aren't these papers just the yummiest?!

And an angle to the left... what an awesome fold! I really do hope this card will make someone who is a little under the weather feel better. :)
