This is Knot Good

The state of the world is “knot” good. All I can do at this point is keep being creative to stay positive and pray that all will be well soon.

This little Get Well card is made with the Back on Your Feet stamp set by Stampin’ Up!® It’s good to add a little humor when the situation is not the best. I do hope that all of you are safe and well, and that your families are well too.

Measurements: Whisper White cardstock (CS): 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score at 4 1/4 inches, 5 1/4 x 4 inches and 4 x 2 1/2 inches; Crushed Curry CS: 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches and 4 1/4 x 2 3/4 inches; Soft Suede CS: 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 inches. You will also need a 9 x 1/4 inch strip of the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series paper (DSP) -not shown.

Stamp the giraffe and the sentiment “This is knot good” onto the 4 x 2 1/2 inch Whisper White CS with black Memento ink.

I used a stamp from the Gallery Grunge stamp set to make the background. Stamp the image in Soft Suede ink. Gallery Grunge is a great stamp set to have on hand as you can make many different backgrounds.

Color the giraffe with the Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. One of the wonderful benefits of Stampin’ Up! is that the paper, ink, markers, ribbon, etc all match!

Color the giraffe’s spots with the Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker. Use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker for the hooves.

Finish the giraffe with a little Petal Pink in the ears and Old Olive for the grass.

Use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold on the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Whisper White CS at the 4 1/4 inch score to make the card base. Adhere the 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inch Crushed Curry CS to the front of the card base.

Adhere the Soft Suede piece to the Crushed Curry piece on the card front.

Adhere the giraffe to the 4 1/4 x 2 3/4 inch Crushed Curry CS. Adhere the whole piece to the Soft Suede CS on the card front.

Cut two 2 inch strips from the 9 1/4 x 1/4 inch Birthday Bonanza DSP. Apply to the card front so they look like strips of tape, like on a scrapbook page.

I decided to make the inside of the card with a sentiment. I used Whisper White CS 5 1/4 x 4 inches and stamped the sentiment in Memento ink.

Adhere a 5 1/4 x 1/4 inch strip of the Birthday Bonanza DSP to the left side of the insert. Then adhere it to the inside of the card.

And Viola! You have a slightly humorous card to let someone who is having a hard time know that you are there for them.

The stamp set has a few other animals and sentiments, so I made a set.

I hope you enjoyed that card. I am very thankful you stopped by.
