Get Well Soon - Hand Stamped Friendship

Do you have a friend? Does that friend strengthen you?
This card is CASEd from the current Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog. In fact, it can be found on page 114. I liked the simplicity of the card, thought I could tweak it to work with what I have and decided to go for it.

When you're CASEing a card, it doesn't have to be spot on with the color or even the stamp set. CASEing is when you have an inspiration piece, and it helps you make something similar, not exact. And that's okay. We all need to put our personalities into the things we create.

Tip - When you are making cards that you know you are going to mail, be sure to use lots of adhesive. Now is not the time to be stingy. Put on more adhesive than you might normally, being sure to hit the middles of the card stock, put on one more dimensional, another glue dot. If you ever see your cards after they have been mailed (you go to visit that person and they have the card hanging up on the frig or a cabinet), you will be glad you took the time to put on a bit more adhesive. When cards go through the Postal Service, the machinery can knock things out of whack if there isn't enough adhesive on it.
As usual, I decided if I was making one, I may as well make six (or eight or ten)! After all, get well cards are always needed, make great gifts for a friend, hostess, housewarming in a packet of cards, birthday, etc.
