I always need cards for last minute things; birthdays, thank you, get well, etc and I don't always have time right before the event to make one. I love to make some random cards ready in my desk for such occasions.
Here is a video of how I created one of these cards.
I wanted the Paper Smooches "Squeaky Clean" Stamps to stand out so I really kept a simple background of solid cardstock papers. The irony of the cards is the flicked spray mists, the illusion that the clean is really not clean. Adding on all the small parts of ribbons and papers are also super easy with Xyron adhesives.
I just clove the puns on these cards, the vacuum with the sentiment of "that sucks" is sure to make a get well card seem a bit brighter!
I giggle at "I was swept off my feet" with a broom, duster, and dust bunny. Even my husband laughed at that one.
I have already given this one away as a birthday card to my FIL, he just turned 71, pretty impressed!!
I love the light-hearted feel of these cards, it just makes you smile.
