A Get Well Card

Hello, Blogland! I've been busy, busy, busy over here, but I wanted to pop in for a quick moment and share a card I made this weekend. I was in the mood for a "get well" card and I thought Dawn McVey's Candy Cane Christmas set would be just the ticket. I love that mug! It's so versatile. In addition to the peppermint stick images Dawn includes in the set, you can also make your own tea tags, stir sticks, and spoons for use all year round. Anyway, on to the card.

As usual, it's all pretty self-explanatory. I created my own patterned paper with Faux Ribbon and Background Basics: Retro. The tag is one of the small images from Butterfly Kisses punched out twice with a small circle punch and adhered on either side of a bit of perle cotton. I also flocked the steam to make it just a touch softer.

Thanks for checking in today! I have a couple of additional posts in the pipeline, so be sure to visit again soon. Have a wonderful day!
