Get Better

I finally put together this card! The little bear is so stinkin cute! I used the glittered cuttlebug technique on this one. I have needed alot of Get Well cards lately so I thought it was perfect.

The recipe:
  • Stampin Up W White, Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue CS
  • Whipper Snapper BooBoo Bear
  • Prismacolor and gamsol
  • Lasting Impressions buttons-- Boardwalk Blue
  • May Arts striped ribbon, SU organdy, irridescent cord
  • Word Window Punch
  • Cuttlebug embossing folder
  • Glitter
  • SU retired Simple Sayings stamp set
  • Stickles

Here's a tip: In order to create a slit on the crease of the fold for the ribbon I used the Basic Gray Notch supplies. I have never actually purchased the BG Notch tool.. I use the refill blades (sold seperately to refill the tool) and use an eyelet mat and a hammer to cut the notch out. Saves a bunch of money!! I believe the Notch tool is about $25.. This refill set cost about $9-10. Quite a savings!

I love the colors, but also love
