Hello everyone! Today I have what I think is a super funny "Get Well" card for one of my MCT ~ Design Team buddies who had surgery recently. The surgery was on her inner ear, but I know they had to do a craniotomy to get in there. So I was imagining they would have to wrap her head up like a mummy. This was the picture I kept seeing in my head, so I thought I would make a card out of it.
LOL....every time I look at this, I just want to laugh!! I hope she thinks it's just as funny!!! The black card base is from Recollections. The cute little surgery patient is cut from the Everyday Paper Dolls ~ Cricut Cartridge. Her hair, bathrobe (which I made to look like a hospital gown) and her little slippers are also cut from that cartridge. The patterned papers for her bathrobe and the background piece that is a super light green are from the Echo Park Paper Co. ~ This & That : Graceful paper pad. For her funny bandaged head, I cut the Halloween mummy from the Paper Doll Dress Up ~ Cricut cartridge. I just cut off his body and attached his head onto hers. Then I cut out a little opening for her eyes. LOL....is that so funny??? The pretty pink cardstock for her slippers and the background piece is from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Le Tres Chic paper pack.
Her cute little face is from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Simple Sallies Face Assortment stamp set. In the background you can also see a cute little vase that I cut from the Potpourri Basket ~ Cricut cartridge. The pretty little flowers are an embellishment from a old company called The Card Co, but I don't think they are in business anymore - I got them years and years ago.
The cute little bed is cut from the Sugar & Spice ~ Cricut Lite cartridge. I used a shiny metallic silver paper from my scraps for the bed frame. For the pillow and blanket, I used plain white cardstock from Georgia Pacific. If you look closely, you can see that I also did some dry embossing on the blanket with the Houndstooth ~ Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.
And finally, the super funny sentiment is from the My Creative Time ~ Pain Pain Go Away stamp set. Isn't it a hoot??? The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.
Well, my creative friends...that's it for today. I hope you can see that even when times are tough ~ we can still make some pretty funny stuff!!! Have a great day everyone! See you all again soon.
