I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Doctor's Orders

Hi everyone,

One of our friends spent about a week in the hospital recently. She's home and recovering nicely, but won't be able to return to work for another couple of weeks. She is NOT good at just "vegging." She needs to be doing something all the time, so this forced downtime is hard for her to handle. (I keep telling her that she needs a hobby)

Using Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #108, I made this card to remind her of the Doctor's Orders to "rest, relax and recover". I started with one of the new TE Mokas called Moka Sunshine. The sentiment is from the TE set called Doctors Orders.

I wanted the cross element to hang over the edges of the card.  For the card to fit into a standard A2 envelope, I cut the card body down to 3.5" wide. It's still 5.5" long. I guess you could call it a "tall and skinny" card.

Here is the inside with the Doctor's Orders:

Stamps: Moka Sunshine and Doctor's Orders by Taylored Expressions
Paper: SU Gumball Green, Crisp Cantaloupe and X-Press It Blending card stocks and Doodlebug Flower Box pattern papers
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Copics and SU Crisp Cantaloupe
Other: TE Gift Card, Frame It Up 1, Curly Border, Hearts A Plenty, Friendship Blooms, and Butterflies dies, Queen and Co. pearls and rhinestones, sewing machine, the Big Shot, and dimensionals

Have a great rest of the weekend and thanks for stopping by,
