Get Well Soon Gift and Card
Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).
With my mother having to go into hospital towards the end of last month I needed to make her a Get Well Soon card. I also wanted to send her in a little gift, but knew that flowers were not allowed any more.
Therefore, I decided to get out my stash of Forever Flowerz flower makeing stuff and make her one single flower, and to present it in a box I made that had three acetate sides and cardboard with a finish on the other sides – so that it could simply be wiped down with alcohol wipes.
I used one layer from the same flower makeing kit with a glittery gem in the middle, along with offcuts from the cardstock I’d used for makeing the box, to make a simple card. I’ve not put a greeting on the outside but put an insert inside that I hand wrote my greeting. Brysia Wella is the Welsh equivelant greeting for Get Well Soon, though Brysia is translated as hurry up, so the greeting is more of a Hurry Up and Get Well.
When Mam went in we couldn’t find her glasses. It took me several days of searching in her room to finally find them. She’d broken the beaded glasses chain I’d made for her a while ago, and I was going to give her another as part of her Christmas presant, but as I was going to send the glasses in to her in hospital with a few other bits in a “care package” I decided to make her a new beaded glasses chain now. (I’d already got the bag with the bits I needed by the bottom of my bed ready for makeing it as “an evening in front of the telly” project.)
Flower In Box
The flower is one of the Forever Flowers Chrysanthemums. I made it up as per the instructions that came with the kit.
I made up a small cube box from cardstock from my stash as well as construction acetate. The cube being stuck together using the red lined ultra tacky tape.
I put some Forever Flowerz foliage towards the back of the box before putting in the flower.
Foliage and Flower were stuck in place using hot glue.
I used a pre cut and scored 6″ square base card, trimmed a sheet of foiled cardstock to stick on the front, leaving a border. I cut a sheet of cardstock that has a sort of glitter embossed floral pattern on it to around half the size of the front and stuck that on. Both attached using fingerlift tape.
I used some Forever Flowers foliage along with the one flower layer, attaching using Pinflair Glue Gel. I finished off by adding the flower centre.
Beaded Glasses Chain
I used monofilament, a pack of silver lined green seed beeds and a smaller pack of mixed seed beeds from white to red in colour. I then attached the glasses holding ends using crimp beads, callots and a jump rings.
I think I’ll be back to Christmas cards for my next post – not sure yet. Keep an eye out over the next few days.
