I created this card for my friend who's sick in the hospital, across the country from me. I wanted a CAS card with little frills and tried to make it a little more masculine for him, though I know he wouldn't care. I wanted to exercise some restraint so that the message is noticed more than the accessories.
I used a leafy stamp from an Altenew set called "Rosy Blooms" and watercolored it with a combination of Aqua Markers and Arteza watercolor brushes. I paired the image with a verse from Verve Stamps I've had for years, to offer encouragement.
I matted it with Bazzil "Jade" green cardstock and cut a decorative edged bottom with a Spellbinders die. Then added a watercolored butterfly I put Popdots under it to give it lift and dimension so it looks like it just landed on the leaf, and some pearl gems to finish the card.
