Get Well Cards - One Die, Three Ways


I have three cards to share today that were all created with the My Favorite Things Centerpieces Framed Lovebirds craft die and the Get Well Wishes stamp set

This die has so many possibilities and can be used in a lot of fun, different ways. I created three cards, each with a completely different look. I love the results and I can definitely see myself using this die in even more unique ways. And it is such a great image... it can be used for so many different occasions. ;)

Sending Get Well Wishes (using glitter paper)

For this card, I cut the image out of brown and aqua DCWV glitter paper and pieced the image back together on a piece of copy paper that I had covered in adhesive.
I also cut out leaves from green glitter paper and the birds from red glitter paper. I adhered them all directly over the brown piece with glossy accents.

I trimmed it down to fit on the top-folding card base and then added the sentiment with black ink directly underneath. I completed the card by rounding the corners with my 1/4" Corner Chomper.

Take Care of Yourself (using paint)

For this card, I diecut the image out of Tim Holtz Watercolor paper, mainly because I wanted the texture, but also because it warps less under the wet paint, since it's a thicker paper. 
I separated all the pieces and then I used Tim Holtz Distress paint to add all of the color. I painted all the pieces in the colours I wanted and then pieced it all back together once they were dry.

I stamped the sentiments in Archival Jet Black Ink since I was stamping directly on the painted surface. The black ink fades a bit on the paint and it looks softer, which i really like. I added some gems and little black dots on the birds for eyes to complete the card.

Feel Better Soon (watercolour silhouette)

*the black cardstock looks really faded in this photo, but it doesn't look like that IRL. ;)

For this card, I started out with a piece of Tim Holtz watercolour paper and coloured on it with red, orange and yellow distress markers. I then painted over it with a water brush and spritzed the whole thing with water to help the ink colours blend together.

Once it was dry, I diecut the image out of black cardstock and then adhered it directly on the watercoloured surface. I was trying to make it look like a silhouette over a sunset... hopefully that's what it looks like lol! ;)
To complete the card, I added some glitter to the black leaves and birds with my clear Wink of Stella Glitter marker.

You can see how I created all three of these cards in the video below:

All of the supplies that I used in all three cards are listed below. ;)
