XOXO Bandages Get Well Card

Rubbernecker Stamps Get Well Card

I stamped the background mainly with one stamp and popped one bandage and the bandage box forward by using color (Copic markers) and Nuvo Crystal Glaze for dimension. I also added Clear Wink of Stella to the colored bandage to make it look a little magical (if you are going to have a boo boo, why not use a sparkly bandage?). Simple matting gives this card a clean look so the focus will be on the colored stamped images.

Making the Card

1. Cut beige cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches; fold in half to form a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card base. Cut black cardstock 4 x 5 1/4 inches. Cut alcohol marker friendly cardstock 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 inches (I used X-Press It Blending Card).

2. Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp bandage box plus bandage (Get Well) above it where shown. These will be the ones you color. Also stamp bandage box in Jet Black StazOn ink on masking paper (I used Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Mask Sheets but I think they have been discontinued). Trim around mask, cutting down middle of black line as best as possible. Apply mask to stamped image (hint: if the mask is too sticky, before applying stick it to your shirt or pants to remove some of the stickiness - I forgot to do this and tore the paper slightly when removing mine).

3. Use Gray Flannel Memento ink to stamp the rest of the bandages as shown. Carefully remove the mask from the bandage box.

4. Color bandage above box with alcohol markers. I used Copic markers in colors E30, E31, E34. Color bandage box: C0, C1, C2, C4, C6.

5. Apply Clear Wink of Stella to bandage. (See photo - it actually shows up better in person.) Apply Nuvo Crystal Glaze over colored bandage and box (note: you could also use Glossy Accents). Set aside to dry.

6. Stamp "Sending Get Well Thoughts..." (Get Well) inside card with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

7. Once dry, adhere stamped panel to black cardstock; adhere to card base. Hint: I used liquid glue behind the Nuvo Crystal Glaze areas on both layers due to slight warping - you could also use very strong double sided tape.
