Feel Better Soon Card
By Lodell Halvorson
- Front of the card: Place your card with the fold on top. Cover with Bountiful flowered paper. Lightly sponge the edges with blackberry ink.
- Use stencil tape to hold the stencil in place on a 4 1/2"x3 1/2" green paper at a slight angle. Use a sponge to ink the image. Remove the stencil and use the X-acto® pen knife and cutting mat to cut around only the wings of the dragonfly, leaving a 1 1/6" border. Mat on red paper with 1/8" borders, leaving the wings unglued. Lift them up slightly to show the red underneath. Foam tape to the card 3/8" from the top and right edges of the card. Tie a pink metallic bow around the left side of the dragonfly paper.
- Stamp a blackberry label on white cardstock, then stamp "Feel Better Soon" in the center of the frame with warm red ink. Cut around the edges leaving a 1/32" border and foam tape and glue to the lower left corner of the card, overlapping the ribbon as shown.
- Inside the card: Cover the card with green Bountiful paper with the swirl and flower design in the lower left corner. Stencil a blackberry dragonfly on the right, slightly tilted and stamp "Feel Better Soon" on the upper left.
