Funky Fossil "Cellular Stencil" Get Well Soon Card

One of our best friends has been waiting to have an operation on his brain for over eighteen months.  Due to various reasons, the operation has been cancelled and postponed but yesterday he was operated on.

We heard today, that the operation went well and that he should be out of hospital in a day or so once the drain has been removed - such a huge relief as he has known about the cyst on his brain for about four years and it has obviously been weighing heavy on the whole family.

He is a big fan of the lemon cake that I make, so this evening I made him a cake, I also bought him his favourite biscuits:  Fig Rolls and Chocolate Hobnobs, so the card was the last thing to make ready to give him when he gets home.  Hubby will be collecting him from Liverpool tomorrow/Thursday.

It's a simple card.  I used Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink, coated in Wow! Clear Embossing Powder and heat set the Waffle Flower sentiment.

I used a circle mask and over the top lay the Funky Fossil Designs "Cellular Stencil" over the top, then applied three shades of Distress Oxide Inks through the stencil:  Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio.

Finally, I added three Funky Fossil Enamel Dots to the bottom edge of the inked area.
