Laughter really is the best medicine and I just had to make a get well card for this week’s JOKE challenge over at CASology…
When you’re feeling down and under, a little laughter never hurts. I remember when my own mother was in the ICU when I was a teenager and moments of laughter were like little mini vacations from the seriousness at hand!
I stamped the main image thinking I was going to color it all in, but changed my mind as I really wanted to preserve as much white space as possible! Granted the black & white image still takes up space, but it just feels less intrusive without color. I had to color that hospital gown, however! Anyone else notice how unattractive those things tend to be?! I’d love to say that they’re comfortable and that makes up for the ugly, but I can’t do that. Who can feel comfortable in something that always has you tugging at the gaping hole that is revealing your backside?! I added black gemstone earrings to the nurse’s ears for dimension and added interest. The inside reads, “Get well soon.”
I hope you’ll join us this week as we joke around a bit over at CASology! Remember these helpful hints when creating a CAS card:
1. One main image
2. Lots of open space (uncluttered)
3. Limited layers & embellishments
4. Quick & easy to recreate
