A personalized get well card is way more touching than one you mass produce. Let’s talk about how we did it.

Our friend has been sick for a while and they finally figured out what it is. We’re glad they figured it out but wished it would’ve been faster.

Her treatment will take a while and she’s ready to get started and fight this thing.

We’ve made this one pretty personalized. Let me explain….

Encouraging Card for a Friend

One of the things we like best about card making is that you can make things how you want them.

One of the things we like best about Stampin’ Up! is that the colors coordinate. And we love coloring with the Stampin’ Blends. That’s how we got Ann’s hair color right.

Encouraging Card for a Friend
  • Ann’s favorite color is red so we put a red shirt on her.
  • Our friend’s hair is longer and darker. Check!
  • We hope she likes the Rich Razzleberry we used for her shirt.
  • She lives in a more tropical climate so a Fall card wasn’t what we were going for.

The hardest thing was to decide what colors to make the card base and layers.

Ann is wondering if she really looks that thin from the back. (Don’t tell her the truth.)

It’s always the right time to send an encouraging card to a friend. Don’t wait! This doesn’t have to be a get well card. You could send it to someone who’s going through a divorce, hard times or a difficult move.

You might want to grab this set now because this card would even work for our friends in Florida after we know where Hurricane Dorian lands.

Card Making Tips

What color hair would you want to put on your personalized get well card? We’re listing what we used below.

  • We color Ann’s hair with Bronze and then streaked in a little Light Cherry Cobbler.
  • The background was originally colored with the Pool Party Combo. We didn’t like that so much so we went over it with the Light Balmy Blue.
