A Week of Retiring Stamps - Day 1 - Pocket Silhouettes Get Well card

For this last week of May, I am going to try to post daily. I will be posting cards highlighting stamps, tools and accessories that are retiring on May 31st. Here is my card for today.

The base of this card is Pear Pizzazz Cardstock. I used the Scallop Edge punch on a small strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and the Eyelet Border Punch on a small strip of Basic Black Cardstock. I adhered both of them to the card base, and tied Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon around the card base to cover up the top of the Pear Pizzazz strip. I used the 2 ½” circle punch to punch a hole out of the center of a post-it note. I put the post it note (the square one with a hole, not the circle) onto a 3”x3” piece of Whisper White cardstock to create a mask. Using a sponge dauber, I sponged Pear Pizzazz ink onto part of the cardstock, and Baja Breeze ink onto the rest of the cardstock. Then I stamped the flower images from Pocket Silhouettes stamp set using Basic Black ink. The “Get Well” sentiment is from the Delightful Dozen stamp set. I matted this onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

I kept the inside really simple, just dressing it up a bit using a stamp from the Pocket Silhouettes set and a small strip of Baja Breeze cardstock.
