Speedy Recovery Card (CASology Week #293 GDT)

Hi everyone! :o)

I was delighted to be asked to be a Guest Designer at CASology for Week 293, after I won in their Week 287 challenge. :o)

This week's cue word is Cross.

I made this CAS (clean and simple), Speedy Recovery Card.

Design defined: 
One main image with a little dimension, simple color scheme and a lot of a white space works great on CAS designs.

How I made the card...

For my card I used stamps from Create a Smile 'Whimsical Wheels' stamp set.

I stamped an ambulance vehicle on a watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the vehicle and traced edges with black marker.

Watercolor paper I use is very thin. To make the image thicker, I stamped the vehicle one more time on a white cardstock paper, fussy cut it, traced edges with black marker and glued together both vehicles: white and colored one.

Then I stamped a sentiment directly on a top folded white card base and glued some colored paper stripes on the card base to ground the image. I glued some foam on the back of the ambulance vehicle, place it on the card and my card was finished. :o)

    Card dimensions: 89 mm x 121 mm (3 1/2" x 4 3/4")
