Get Well Cards-TOW

Hi Jenifer here with you today to share my Get Well cards with you.  I have a really hard time cutting into a fresh 12x12 piece of paper to make a card, so all of my cards are made from scraps of paper and fabric.
Iron on a scrap piece of HeatNBond Ultra to a scrap piece of muslin.  Spray muslin with some gold glitter dust.  Wait for it to dry.  Iron the muslin to the card using a pressing cloth.  Sew on some scrap pieces of crochet lace.  Use a jumbo zot attach the doily and a medium zot to attach the buttons.  Super tape works really well to attach the flowers and to also attach the tissue paper to the piece of balsa wood.

Attach your patterned paper and doily to the base of the card using a Super stick.  Attach some fringed waxed paper using super tape.  Sew a few layers of eyelet and lace.  Attach flowers using Jumbo Zots.  Foam squares will make the sentiment pop, and tie a nice ribbon at the fold and you are done.

Tear pieces of an old book and glue down randomly using a super stick.  Layer the doilies and adhere them using a Super stick.  Attach flowers with a Jumbo zot and the pearls with a small zot.  Pop the sentiment with a couple foam squares and tie some pretty silk ribbons at the top and you are finished.

All Ribbons and flowers from May Arts
Doilies and balsa wood from Curtsey Boutique

I hope you have enjoyed my cards today using scraps, make sure you check back often to see what we have been working on.
