So Irresistible!


Unfortunately, I’m making a lot of get well cards lately. I decided to make lemons into lemonade by coloring up several of these cheerful cards. As they say, humor is the best medicine! I know these cards will brighten people's day when they’re received. 

This is made with the Art Impressions 4863 Irresistible Set. I really love her bed. It’s just like the antique brass bed I had when I lived at home so many years ago. I think I would have picked this one up just because of that but it also makes up some great cards with just the right amount of light heartedness.

This is an A2 card that folds at the top. I used XXX in Basis cardstock. Basis is an 80# weight and I highly recommend it for it's solid core, smooth surface and beautiful colors. It's outstanding used as card bases but it also cuts wonderfully in both metal dies and on electronic cutting machines. The beautiful pink cardstock is Pink Quartz Stardream Metallic cardstock. It is so lustrous and beautiful! You can get both cardstocks at great prices at CutCardStock. If you haven't checked them out yet, you really should.  

The beautiful border on this card is from one of my new favorite rectangle nesting die sets from Spellbinders. This one is called Candlewick Rectangles. It can be run through twice to create embossed details. In this card, I did not take that extra step. I just really love the circle/diamond pattern it creates around the edge. It's really different and adds a lot to a card. 

I stamped this onto marker paper and colored it with Copic colors. I used the package illustration to guide my shading and color choices. I think it’s great that you can always use the package illustration for an example. One thing I changed up though was the bed color. I made mine into a brass bed of course!
