Feel Better

Hello, my friends!  Over at the Card A Day Blog we are still in 'Get Well' mode.  So I have another card for you in that theme, and I was still in the mood for paper folding, so I have another Iris Fold design to show you.

My card started with a scrap (yes, big surprise there, I know!) that was leftover from a die cut.  I saw the piece sticking out of my scrap envelope and thought it would be a great frame for an iris fold square.  I wanted to use some happy, sunshiny Spring colors, and took out one of my Iris Folding Papers booklets that had the right kind of papers.  I printed off the size square I needed, and went to work.



I did some inking around the edge of the piece as well as the edge of the paper, and then decided to find my card base.  Because of the size of the scrap, my card needed to be a 5 3/4" square.  I found a piece of Stampin' Up cardstock that was a perfect match.  I wanted the base to have a bit of texture, which I accomplished on my scoring board.  I affixed the central image and added a flourish at the top:


and a sentiment at the bottom.


In keeping with the basic simplicity of the front, I added a very simple sentiment to the inside with some inking at the corners along with a few score lines for texture


Here is your full front view of today's card:
