ID: MC July 11 - Lemons - Get Well Soon card
4.25"w x 5.5"h

Created: July 9, 2011


I'm entering this card into the Flourishes Challenge to hopefully win their new stamp sets... Keeping my fingers crossed.

This card also uses one of the newest sentiment stamp by Quietfire Design

I started the card with the lemons... (they're from the Flourishes Peaches & Cherries set #59 - no lemons there BIG GRIN, but don't they look like lemons when they're colored in yellow?). So I stamped them on white cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx, colored with Tombows and a water brush, then cut them out.

I needed another image for the card so used the lemonade vase (Onyx Expressions #XP9011), stamped with the black on white cardstock and colored with Prisma colors, adding a bit of pink in the liquid for "Pink Lemonade", then cut it out as well.

I die cut the framework (Cheery Lynn #frm114) from white cardstock and direct to paper with various shades of Distress greens. Wove a piece of white cardstock at the bottom and stamped my sentiment with the black. Wove a piece of green ribbon at the top and tied a peg bow. Adhered my frame layer to my main white card. then adhered my vase and then my lemons with pop dots.

Punched out 2 sizes of the scalloped square (McGill stacking series #92092 & 93) from white cardstock, colored the bottom one with a pink Tombow and wrote my quote in the smaller one doing my Funky Lettering with a very fine Micron pen.

Quote: When life gives you lemons ask for salt and Tequila! or else make pink lemonade.
