Feel Better Soon..... please

Have you ever been working so intensely on a card and it's just not coming together at all?  Well, today after coloring in 15 little coffee cups, cutting, embossing and stamping and it STILL wasn't doing anything for me, I picked up one of the pieces I had embossed and thought "this would make the cutest little bandaid!

So, I present to you a get well card  that just makes me feel better already! It fits perfectly into the Small Open-Ended Envelopes #107286 which are 6-3/4" x 3-1/2". It's a great little envelope, too!

Pool Party card stock            6-1/2" x 6-1/2" round all four corners with a 3/16" Corner punch
Crumb Cake card stock        1-1/4" x 5"  emboss with Adorning Accents heart folder
                                                 1" x 1-1/4"   de-boss with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder
Whisper White card stock     2" x 2" 
Word Play stamp set #120651
Itty Bitty Bits stamp set #120060
Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder
Adorning Accents embossing folder
Big Shot Machine
Marina Mist ink
Crumb Cake ink
Basic Gray ink
Stampin' Dimensionals
Glue Dots
Post-it Note

1) Fold card in half. Stamp hearts onto card front using Marina Mist ink. Sponge edges of card with Marina Mist ink also.

2)Round edges of embossed "band-aid" using the 3/16" Corner punch and sponge edges  with Crumb Cake ink. Adhere center piece of "band aid" using Glue Dots and then entire "band-aid" to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.

3) Using Basic Gray ink, stamp sentiment to lower right hand corner of card. Also stamp sentiment onto Whisper white card stock. I used a label punch that I didn't realize was discontinued until writing this - however, you can cut out just the "ick" into a square that fits inside the saying and use the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack to add the little bit of cuteness to the corners. Adhere to card front with a Glue Dot.

Whenever I have to punch something this little I just adhere it to a Post-it note so you have something to hold onto while punching. Perhaps this picture will help...

The medicine bottle holds Jelly Bellys. I adorned it using a tag from the Lots of Tags Die set #114508, stamped it the same as the card front and used part of the same sentiment. I cut a piece of Marina Mist seam binding in half lengthwise (I like how it starts to fray!) to tie around the bottle (which I just happened to have from who knows where!)  A good source for the Jelly Bellys is Winco  - I love their bulk section!
