I'm pretty sure if sweets could cure all ailments and the simple instructions were, in fact, to take two of everything, I would never so much complain about a hangnail again! While I don't find macarons to be the yummiest of treats, their colorful assortment and nod to french cuisine is always a win in my book. As we are nearing the start of the winter season here in New England, I thought I should begin stocking up on some get well soon cards, because much like Christmas, 'tis the season!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I created a frame using the Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangle dies from Gina Marie Designs and Crumb Cake cardstock. I stamped the two layered macarons from Avery Elle in Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry inks onto white cardstock. Because I didn't have the coordinating die, I fussy cut each macaron and adhered it to the center of the frame using Stampin' Dimensionals. Underneath the macarons is a 5" x 3 3/4" sheet of Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gingham paper. I tied a piece of Linen Thread around the frame. I stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry ink on a scrap piece of white cardstock, notched both ends and adhered the sentiment to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals for added height.
I was unable to find the exact macaron stamp set I used to create this card from Avery Elle (perhaps it retired), but you could use this similar stamp set from Impression Obsession:
Thank you for visiting and have a sweet day!
