Get Well Ollie

  It is the beginning of cold and flu season where I live. The weather has been what I think is a lot cooler than normal for this time of year - we have a frost warning again for tonight - and a few trees in my neighbourhood are changing colour already. 

I love fall and the cooler temps but I'm not a fan of the cold/flu season. I do however like to add cards to my get well stash to send to friends and family who may come down with something and need to receive a smile in the mail. "Sick Ollie" from High Hopes is feeling a little under the weather himself and is perfect to bring a smile and help someone. 

After stamping Ollie on alcohol marker friendly paper, I coloured him with Copic markers and hand fussy cut him leaving a thin white line. I set him aside and found patterned paper from Craft Consortium and Honey Bee Stamps to create my background. I used a polka dot embossing folder on one piece of paper to add some interest to the background. Next I cut out the second piece of paper with a cross stitch circle die and cut a scallop circle die out of card stock to go behind it. I glued down my layers - after adding some twine - and added Ollie with 3D foam pop dots. Enamel dots finish off my card.
