Ready to see what I created?

With the theme this month, I was trying to come up with the project first since card making isn’t much of a problem for me. I contemplated about a lot of different things to make (I try to be unique) and not to come up with what I think other crafters have created in the past. I limited myself to continue to create using the products that are retiring from Stampin’ Up! for the entire month of May.  

So I created a Get Well Basket and matching card.

The Get Well gift basket is desktop/side table size and refillable.

Gift Basket contents:
  • Mini jar filled with cough drops and a cute Feel Better tag
  • Stampin’ Up! Spearmint Lip Balm
  • Five (5) tea bags in a Cello bag with a cute There’s always time for tea tag
  • Kleenex Tissues with a DSP belly band
  • Cool Melon Lime Purell hand sanitizer

Next is the matching card to display next to the gift basket to cheer up the recipient(s). 

I created the flower as my accent piece for the bee to sit for a bit before he flies back to the hive to make honey.  The bee is fussy cut from the English Garden DSP.
