Get Well Soon Card

My aunt had surgery last week that will require several weeks of recovery. So I thought I would send her a card to let her know I'm thinking of her. I found one that inspired me on splitcoaststampers and decided to make my own version. I'm still using scraps from my scrap bin so the paper is likely all DCWV cardstock, but I can't be sure. I had a lot left over from some projects I did for Christmas and this red, blue and green combination looked cheery on a yellow card base. I used a new Sizzix embossing folder called "Flower Clusters" for the large embossed area and the dotted folder from the Dot and Flowers set I've had for years for the smaller frame. I reused the Vine, Swirly Provo Craft die for the greenery and also the Asterisk set for the flower. It's wonderful how they can look so different just by the amount of layering. This time I cut two of the large asterisks for each flower and one of each of the smaller sizes. With the two large ones offset and then the smaller ones stacked offset on top, they made a nice full flower. I topped each flower with a yellow Darice gem. Then it was just a matter of stacking and gluing all the pieces together. I must admit this is one of my more favorite projects of late. It's quite elegant in person and just what I had in mind.
