Perfect Sentiments Challenge 03: Get Well with Embossing

It's new challenge day at The Perfect Sentiments Challenge blog.  This week's challenge:  Create a card reflecting the sentiment of "Get Well".  There always is a twist and this week's was to use dry or heat embossing.

I am horrible at making up my mind.  For example, going out to dinner I like to order last so that I can hear what everyone else is ordering - it might sound better than what I had in mind.  For the twist using dry or heat embossing just wasn't going to win the coin toss.  I had to use both.

Penny Black is my all time favorite line of stamps.  The image and the sentiment are both Penny Black's.  I heat embossed the image and the sentiment on the first fold.  I used dry and heat embossing on the second fold of the card.  The third fold I used A|Muse ruled paper as it reminded me of the tablet in the image and leaving room for a personal message from the sender.  A|Muse was the paper of choice.  The image was water-colored using Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads.  The brads are from Stampin' Up and the ribbon anonymous.

Here's what I created:


Not too sure if you can see the different folds to the card on the below photo or not but thought I would give it a whirl!


Thanks for looking!

Sassy, you are so creative! Love your card! It is very unique, and every aspect of it is done so well. You did a great job on all of the embossing. I love the dimensional look of the dry embossed page. Plus, I'm a Penny Black lover, too. I love the stamp - it is adorable, and your carry over to the 3rd page gives it all so much consistency. I'm so glad you joined our challenge at The Perfect Sentiment this week!
