Card - Get Well Umbrella

I made this card for a friend who had knee surgery recently and is at home recuperating.

I just love this color combination.

I cut the umbrella with the Cricut and the Tie the Knot cartridge at 3.5".  I cut one from grey card stock and one from the yellow designer paper.  I cut the finial, the handle and the tips off the yellow one then glued it onto the grey one aligning the edges carefully.  I designed and printed the grey greeting layer then trimmed it close to the border. I glued the greeting layer to the matching card then glued the umbrella to the card front.

Submitting the card to Bitten by the Bug - National Old Stuff Day Challenge.  To use a cartridge we have not used in a long time.  This is my second time using it and the last time was over a year ago.

  4. I have this cartridge and have never ever used it. You have inspired me to break it out (and I should since my daughter got engaged a couple weeks ago). Your card is beautiful and your friend is going to love it (hope she heals fast!). Thank you for joining us at this week's challenge at BBTB2!
