That's Why They Call It The I.C.U. card by Patty Folchert

So I just had to laugh when I first laid eyes on this new stamp set of Hampton Art and Art Impressions. It is so funny! What better way to encourage healing than laughter?

This is a super simple card with just a couple layers of Jillibean Soup papers from the new Mushroom Medley collection.

That's Why They Call It The I.C.U. card by Patty Folchert

I began with a plain white card base and then layered on the plaid paper. Then I stamped the image onto kraft paper in dark gray ink. Then stamped the funny sentiment below it as shown, it says: “That’s why they call it the I.C.U….” Ha Ha so cute with the typical gaping back hospital gown. Then I matted the image piece with the cheerful yellow print and added those pieces to the card base using 3D pop up dots. Last I tied on a pretty green crepe ribbon and added some green adhesive sequins.

To complete the card I had to add the inside sentiment which says: “Hope you’ll soon be fully re-covered!” Too funny, right? This stamp set is a keeper to be sure.

Well Wishes,
Patty Folchert
