Project - Salmon Globe Mallow Get Well Soon Card

The common pale pink mallow, or Lavatera, is what we usually see in people's gardens but this salmon coloured variety is gorgeous!

For this one print:-

The Salmon Globe Mallow large pyramage sheet onto quality white card
Both the red spiky flower and the cream reverse image from the red Digital Paper Pad onto quality white paper

To make the card, cover the front of a cream or ivory DL card blank with the cream spiky flower background paper using double-sided tape. Cut a 4cm strip of the red spiky flower paper and fix it to the bottom of the card blank.

Make up the pyramage stack - I've done this one with just another layer of scrap card between each piece, stuck with double-sided tape. 

This was because I came to the conclusion that I have so many pyramage cards made up with sticky pads that are just too thick to post. By making up the stacks with card instead, it makes them much firmer - and more importantly, thinner and less bulky to send through the post.

I'll probably do them all with card from now on......

Cut a further 1.5cm strip of the red background paper and stick it to a larger piece of cream or ivory card with double-sided tape. Trim top and bottom to leave a small border.

Stick both the pyramage and the border strip onto the card with double-sided tape.

Mount a greeting onto a slightly larger piece of the same cream or ivory card and stick it to the card with double-sided tape, adding another layer of card behind the bottom part of the greeting so that it sits nicely.

Finally, add a cream ribbon bow with a strong tacky glue such as Aleene's.
