Aunt Gerti's RX { Occasionally }

Isn't that a silly title for this card? : ) Let me explain... this cute patterned paper is from SEI ~Aunt Gerti's Garden~flower bed & plot of dots.
The RX image is from a Stampin' Up! 2004 set called "Occasionally." I've stamped it in chocolate brown and embossed it with a clear embossing powder to give it a sheen. I'm not sure you can tell in the photo, but I've punched a hole in the cardstock with my 1-3/8" square punch. The RX image is punched out with the 1-1/4" punch and attached on the inside with stampin dimensionals so it fits in perfectly in the window. :) "Thinking of You" is a $1 M's stamp and the pink/white polka dot ribbon is from M's as well. Inside sentiment: "Wishing you a speedy recovery".

I've been wanting to try and make a Triangle Trifold card and since I had some scraps of Gerti's paper out, I found the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and started in. It's really a clever way to create a card and not as difficult as it appears! : )

Love that color combo. So cute. I love how you used my favorite new tool: the slit punch. I'm gonna have to try that on something.
