Get Well Easel card

I made this perfect card for a friend recovering from a heart attack............perfect, eh? It is  a SVG cut file called Healing Heart Trio from My Scrap Chick can be found here. The finished card size is 4-1/4" x 5-1/4" and fits in an A2 envelope. I didn't have to change a thing to the SVG cut file - it was perfect.  It was a snap to put together using some scraps from my stash.
Surprise - this card is an easel style card  - the front of the card rests on the popped up section for a personal message.
Here is a side view of the easel:
In the bottom left corner, there is a heart with a band-aid. I used a Copic pen E34 to make the center of the band-aid look more realistic. The edges of the heart and band aid are lightly brushed with brown ink. Heart is popped with foam squares.
In the top right corner is an envelope sealed with a heart. The envelope is lightly brushed with brown ink. the flap and heart are popped with foam squares.
Thank you for stopping by today.............thank goodness, my friend is recovering well.
