"SM Get Well card"  5"w x 7"h
I started out with the outline design of a pear Peel Off in gold. Placed it on the 2.5" wide Sookwang tape and cut around the edge. Using a little eye dropper thing I sucked up some Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter (1 per color) and tapped the dropper to sprinkle the glitter where I wanted it. I used a chartreuse, gold & copper. After the glitter was worked in and burnished, I used a toothbrush and Moon Palace black ink to spatter some blemishes on the pear. I set the pear aside while continuing with the rest of the card.

The main card is a cream toned cardstock which I masked the rectangle in the center so that I could rubber stamp a border using Quietfire Design Flourish stamp and Brilliance Rust stamp pad and Queen's Gold embossing powder.


I used the very very thin Sookwang tape (3mm) and taped the inner border then sprinkled some green, black & bronze . Then burnished it. The words are done with a Zig black marker.

The Get Well words are also done with the 3mm tape. First, I just did a simple monoline lettering putting a rectangular shape the approx width of the tape, to one straight edge of each letter so that I would get the spacing right. Then placed the tape in those rectangles and carefully erased my pencil marks. Used the fine tip on my Zig marker to add some of my lines that weren't going to be covered with glitter. Removed the release paper and sprinkled with the same colors as the border I was now ready to place my pear. I peeled off the back release paper and carefully lay it down where I wanted it.
