Nailed The Get Well card is included in Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights.  The top ten winners will be part of an international blog hop - so we're all keen to do well!  Our theme for this highlight is Get Well Soon - a great way to cheer up someone who is feeling down.

It's not always easy to come up with a get well card for the unwell men in our lives but this one just popped into my brain when I was browsing my stamp sets with this card in mind., Masculine Get Well, Build It, Urban Underground, Nailed It, #thecraftythinker, Stampin' Up Australia Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
Mending ... tools .... Get well!

I used the Brushwork Alphabet stamp set to create the greeting to go with the gorgeously masculine Urban Underground Suite., Masculine Get Well, Build It, Urban Underground, Nailed It, #thecraftythinker, Stampin' Up Australia Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
The greeting is popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals for some depth

I used the wonderful Stampin' Write Markers to colour the hammer and the handles of the saw and screwdriver before cutting them out with the matching dies.  I stamped the screwdriver, saw and spanner onto Silver Foil Sheet with Stazon ink (because it's a non-porous surface) and replaced the white screwdriver and saw blade with the silver ones.  

I spent far too long arranging the tools!  I wanted them to look a bit random (I really don't do random well!) but also bring the eye down to the greeting - so they're in a sort of messy inverted pyramid.

Inside the card, I stamped the large "Thinking Of You" greeting from the Time of Year stamp set because it fits nicely but also takes up plenty of space, so I don't have to think of anything clever to say!
