Little Heart Bandage Card

Hello Friends! I've got a quick little post here. A friend of mine had surgery on her wrist, so I whipped up a little something for her. Hopefully, this will brighten her day a bit.

I tried the 4-bar size card this time. I like it! It's a bit smaller than A2 and I thought it was the perfect choice for this band aid card. I used a digital image from my beloved MelJen's Designs collection.       Just a side note, MelJen's has an all new website and a 50% off sale...go check it out! Back to the card...I printed the Little Heart Bandage onto white card stock and colored it with Spectrum Noir colored pencils and blended with gamsol. I added clear Wink of Stella to the heart. Then I fussy cut it out. I also printed the image onto another piece of white card stock and I die cut a panel using the Stitched Journaling card die from Lawn Fawn. I wanted to have the swirls, bitty hearts and dots, but I also wanted the card to have dimension, so after I colored in the bitty hearts, I adhered the band aid with foam tape. Then I added tiny twinkles and glossy accents.

I decided to create an envelope for my card, using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. I really like a coordinating envelope. It just makes me happy!

And that is it for me today. Thanks for stopping by!

What a thoughtful friend you are, Barb. This card is very sweet. I like the smaller size and the image of the bandid. Great envelope, too! I can see why you like them. :) Thanks for the heads up on MelJen's site, I hadn't been there in a long time. Looks good! Keep creating and sharing, Barb, I always smile reading your posts. :)
