Rockin’ the Plaster Chic!

My SIL broke her leg a couple of weeks ago and had to have surgery.  I happen to be seeing her over the Easter weekend, so I whipped out this little get well card for her.

I made the sentiment using an Office Word and printing it out on card stock.  I really wanted to make a “get well” card that was outside of the box. I saw this cool card, from Paper, Craft, Scissors, a lovely blog I follow  and that was the think tank inspiration for mine.

Thanks for coming and sharing a piece of “even a broken leg can have its chic moment” pie with me.

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.

  1. A very chic “cast” – your bandaging and bow are perfection! Just a wonderful sophisticated and fun card!

    • Thanks! I remember seeing your cute get well card for a broken leg and thought. “how original”. I wanted to do something outside of the box as well. Hope you had a wonderful Easter!

    • Opps, I forgot to give you proper credit for being my inspriation, which I now fixed – I usually don’t do that and I am very sorry. Should not be posting projects late at night… 🙂

  2. SO cute, love how you used the crinkle ribbon for the cast!!

  3. I love that crinkle ribbon and need to get my hands on some from Craft Spot. Love your design and colors! Love your cute sentiment too!

    • I love the crinkle ribbon too! This is my other fav card I have made. I figured out how they do it! It is seam/binding tape ribbon and then they spray it with water and crinkle it up in a ball and let dry in an oven set at 200 for 45 minuts or for 24 hours air dry. I think you get a better deal with My Craft Spot than doing it yourself…

      • So cool! Thanks for sharing the tip! The colors Craft Spot offers are so inviting so I may just have to break down and order it directly from their site but that’s neat how they do it. Thanks for sharing! ~Vanessa
