Copic Get Well Car Card

I've had this stamp for awhile. When a friend ended up with a broken leg, I decided it was time to make an upbeat get well card. This is it. I got the layout idea from Jeanne Streiff's card in the January 2012 CardMaker Magazine. I used the following Copic markers: BG0000, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, RV25, RV29, YR07. I used the larger "Henry" card from the SparkleNSprinkle Stamp Set 251. The card is 4.25" x 5.5". I used Cream and Red 8.5" x 11" Recollections Cardstock for my card base and mats. The striped paper was from some discontinued Close To My Heart product. I stamped the image on Copic cardstock and I inked the base and image paper with Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink .

Vintage Santa

Tonight I got to do a project for fun -- the challenge: create a Vintage card. I used a Closet To My Heart Father Christmas Card (CTMH D1449). I used a 4" Nestibilities Scalloped Circle to frame my Santa and a Cricut Art Philosphy 4 1/4" doily behind my design. My sentiment came from Sparkle & Sprinkle's Playful Pengies stamp set (#438). Of course, I used Copic Markers to color Father Christmas:
* E00 Skin White
* E02 Fruit Pink
* RV21 Light Pink
* B32 Pale Blue
* B37 Antwerp Blue
* YG63 Pea Great
* YG 67 Moss
* R27 Cadmium Red
* $29 Lipstick Red
* Spica 0 Clear
* R29 Lipstick Red
* R35 Coral
* C5 Cool Gray 5
* G02  Spectrum Green
* G05 Emerald Green
* Spica 11 Gold
* Spica 12 Silver

I also used Spica Lipstick Red on the sentiment hat and Sparkle&Sprinkle's Snow White Flocking (FL101). I also used Ranger's Vintage Photo Distress Ink for edging the card.
