You Are Not Alone Encouragement Card

Today my 16 year old daughter had to have an MRI on her head as well as blood work.  I made this quick little card for her and gave it to her just before leaving for the hospital.

This little card went together in mere minutes.  The best part is that all the paper was taken from my scraps.  To get started, you will need the following:

Card base - piece of card stock cut at 6" X 3" and scored and folded at the 3" line
White card stock - cut 2 3/4" X 2 3/4'
Brown/ pink scrap - cut flower at 1 1/2" using the Accent Essentials cricut cartridge
Brad (mine is from "Fancy Pants") and paper piercer
"Amazing You" stamp set (K. Andrew Design)*
Archival ink - print brown
Zig pen - brown
ATG

Instructions:
Cut the flower and curl up the edges using your paper piercer, paintbrush, or some other round tool.  Using the "You are" and "Not Alone" stamps, stamp your image using Print Brown Archival ink.  Pierce a hole through the center of your flower and white mat.  Adhere the pieces to each other using the bread.  Draw squiggly lines around the edges of the card, framing the flower.  Adhere the white mat with flower to the pink cardstock using your ATG gun.

*These stamps are great.  They are great quality and easy to use.  To see more sets or to place an order, click here.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
