Capella Card for Unscripted Sketches

I needed a card for a very sick friend who recently found out she has a very aggressive form of cancer. I gotta say, no fun writing out that one. Sad smile But with this sketch and some new paper, I made the outside work at least.

capella katie get well

The sentiment was especially hard but I found a sheet of 12” long  stickers, all in strips, with several phrases per strip. I thought this one was perfect AND unexpectedly, matched the paper. I mean, how often does that happen?



The chipboard flourish is sprayed with Glimmer Mist, although you can’t see it, it is sparkly IRL. I added the pearls, I love getting them at the dollar store because I don’t feel guilty using so many!

The card base is a gatefold card. The main panel is glued on the left and the sentiment is adhered on the right, then tucks under the cute little clippie thing. You won’t believe where I got the flowers. I found a cute headband at Reitman’s, a business casual women’s store here in Canada. They were $5 so I left them. Then I found them for $1.99 when I went back so I bought 3! Each has about 10” of ribbon roses, 2 rows wide!

Enjoy, Rebecca
