Feel Better Inspiration

Welcome to Day 4 of Papertrey Ink's December release countdown, and our second of three big group posts for this release. Today we are featuring some really cute and clever products that will help you make unique get well cards and care packages. Take It Easy stamps and dies, the Cozy Bed dies, and the Tissue Cover dies are all designed by Erin Lincoln. 

All of the new products will be available at 10 pm ET on December 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.

I've created a card and small care package that is sure to lift the spirits of anyone under the weather. 

The care package items are all packaged in a white berry basket from Michael's.

A couple of glamour shots of the contents ;)

Everything looked so bright and cheery I couldn't resist taking a few extra pictures!

 I clipped a tag (label really) to the basket with a small white clothespin. Keep It Simple: Sending Hugs is stamped onto a Tag Sale: Quilted banner die, then adhered to an oval that was cut from the Summer Sunrise Distress Dots pattern using the oval die from the Tissue Cover (more on that in a minute).

Here's everything all laid out. The soup mix goes in the brown sack. Everything else is loose. You can get a good look at the adorable Tissue Cover here, too. Use one die to cut both the top and bottom, then quickly fold and adhere for the perfect size box for the small purse-size tissue packs. The separate oval die in the set cuts the opening out of the top.

I decorated my Tissue Cover with two strips of Summer Sunrise card stock, as well as a Green Parakeet Simple Gift Bow die-cut.

As I mentioned above, the brown paper sack holds the soup mix. I decorated the bag top with Big Hugs and Fancy Foliage Details die-cuts. The wooden spoon is embellished with some of Papertrey's new skinny washi tape and some True Black baker's twine.

And last is a card using Erin's super clever Cozy Bed dies. Seriously, how cute is this?!

On the bed are Copic-colored PJs, a newspaper, and a pair of reading glasses. These images are all from Take It Easy. My favorite part of the set is that there are different headlines you can stamp on the newspaper. This one says, "Mom Takes Day Off: NASA Reports World Didn't Stop Spinning." So cute!

Above the headboard, I layered some rectangles for a picture-frame look and stamped one of the sentiments inside. 

Stamps: Keep It Simple: Sending Hugs; Take It Easy

Dies: Take It Easy, Tissue Cover, Cozy Bed, Big Hugs, Songbirds, Fancy Foliage Details

Ink: True Black

Paper: Stamper's Select White, Classic Kraft, Green Parakeet, Hibiscus Burst, and Raspberry Fizz card stock; Distressed Dots 8x8 Patterned Paper collection; woodgrain patterned paper (source unknown)

Amy these are just adorable! I love all the little touches on the bed, pillow case and pretty glasses, lol. What an awesome get Well basket. I never seem to be able to find the baskets at Michaels and I adore them. Can I ask where you got the wooden spoons from? Thanks for sharing and inspiring.
