PTI Anniversary Celebration - Announcing Make It Monday Series

You can read all about it on Nichole Heady's Blog.

Today we were asked to make a card using various sentiments as the design. I really needed a get well card for a fellow from church that slipped and fell on the ice last week. (Different guy than our Minister that I mentioned a few days ago. The ice has been treacherous here.) So I used get well sentiments.


This uses sentiments from Healing Touch Sentiments, Tea for Two, Quilter's Sampler, and Mixed Messages stamped with Enchanted Evening on Soft Stone cardstock. The images are from Embellishments and stamped with Scarlet Jewel. The panel is layered on EE and SJ.
It seems like this took forever to lay out. My Fiskars Stamp Press was a HUGE help. I didn't have any luck stamping the way Erin did in the video. I really need to learn how to stamp. These challenges have me feeling so-o-o inadequate. I'm overwhelmed by all the festivities and the talent of PTI customers!

Thanks for dropping by.

This is great, love the layout and the stamps you used as embellishment. I like how aligned it is too - very pleasing to my eye.

I can see this being a great card for a guy - I think it's that super colour combo that really gives it that 'guy' feel!
Hope you're being careful on that treacherous ice yourself! Stay safe!
Hugs,

Linda - I love the way you've created such a unique look by mixing together all of these sets!! What a great guy card! I'm so sorry to hear of this man's accident and hope he is completely healed soon!

It may have taken awhile to get the layout, but it was worth it. The first thing I noticed was the great spacing of the sentiments.I love that you turned some vertically. You have absolutely no reason to feel inadequate. This card is wonderful!
