This is a 'Get well soon' card for someone who underwent eye surgery...
I wanted something cheerful and colourful and decided to go for a pair of funny spectacles!!!
|Outside of the card|
|Inside of the card (squares and heart have been die cut)|
I found the template for the star-shaped spectacles on the internet.
I have printed the template in black and white on a 160 gr/m² paper sheet and cut the frame and rods out of the sheet with scissors and a cutter.
I've ink-stamped (in black) tiny stylized blossoms on white areas of the spectacles by using the mini-rubber stamp you see below and I've used a clear holographic powder to emboss.
For a touch of glamour I've added some yellow rhinestones in the center of the stamped blossoms (rhinestones are part of the prize I got from WhysperFairy Molds blog).
For the 'glasses' of the spectacles: I've dabbed some yellow Versa Color Ink (#11 Canary) on vellum disks and embossed with clear holographic powder.
I've then cut out two holes with the shape of stars on the card base and glued the coloured vellum in the inside of the card (embossed-side facing out).
In order to obtain a 3-D effect, I glued the spectacles on the front of the card with mounting tape and back folded the specs' rods.
