Asian Get Well Cards

Yikes, I have to send out a couple Get Well cards. I went thought my Asian stash of cards and found a couple that could work. This one was pretty "plain" so I added a Real Red CS back drop behind the corrugated Kraft paper, popped with dimensionals. I also added it behind the center panel. Would you believe the Stamped Panel was merely stamped in Black - absolutely no coloring? The stamp set is retired (sorry, I can't even remember the same of it since I have sold it already). Well, using Aqua Pens the results are great!!!! Ahhhh..........much better and a great improvement to this original card. This card will be going to a healing Aunt.

Inside card, a simple message:

Masculine Get well card: I found this in my stash. This is going to someone who in the midst of recovery. It was "dressed up". Dimensionals were added to both panels. Decorative Big Shot Sizzlit corners were added. Message is stamped using Black ink. Looks much better now.

Inside card: Decorative corners also added, along with a Black CS backdrop with Very Vanilla CS for writing additional message.

I remembered the Asian Art stamp set had this great stamp which I used for the back...............

  • Stamps: Happy Healing (retired 1999), Asian Art (retired 2001), Bamboo Background (retired)
  • CS: Naturals Ivory, Very Vanilla, Black, Real Red, Corrugated paper (unknown), Really Rust (retired)
