Back On Your Feet Get Well Soon Card CC&S 429

by Joanne James20. July 2021 12:00

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. Holly is hosting this month and our this week's challenge is a colour challenge: 


For my card today I decided to use the sketch over at Fusion for my layout, but instead of going with graphic blues, I chose ombre greens for a 'get well soon' card featuring an out-of-sorts tortoise - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I used some retired paper that featured the challenge colours to create a background frame to compliment my tortoise, leaving the central panel clear with nothing other than my one word sentiment to leave all the focus on my sweet upside-down tortoise that I coloured with a combination of Stampin' Write Markers and Blends in the appropriate colours: 


I love the fun expression on this tortoise's face, and it pairs perfectly with the remainder of the sentiment that I stamped on the inside of my card: 


I made this card for a dear friend of mine who was out walking her sweet terrier dog when she was literally bowled over by an over-enthusiastic labrador that resulted in her falling to the ground to the sound of a loud 'crack' and a broken leg. Following surgery she is now confined to a wheelchair for at least the next 6 weeks, so this card seemed quite fitting and will hopefully raise a smile through the frustration she is most certainly feeling  at the moment.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

As a reminder, for our colour challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colours. You may also use neutral colours; however, the challenge colours should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up! color names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colours as closely as possible.

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Well this card is definitely appropriate for your friend Joanne. I'm so sorry to hear that she is so knocked up. That little tortoise is a sweetie and what a perfect sentiment too. Vicky x

Very sweet! That background paper is lovely, the turtle is really adorable. I like the way that all that white space lets the sentiment stand out.
