Courage in Rehab



I made this card for a gal who is on one of the Yahoo groups I am on (Canadian Stamp Talk). Turns out she was recently in a terrible motorcycle accident and has now been transferred from hospital and far from friends and family to begin the road to recovery in a rehabilitation unit. I just cannot imagine....


I thought this lovely hand-lettered (and then turned into a rubber stamp) sentiment from Quietfire Design was just the right encouragement. It is accompanied by another stamp that I placed inside that simply says: "Never give up."

I gold embossed the floral frame, cut it out and then watercoloured it, going for a verdis gris effect. I popped it up on pop dots to provide a shadow box effect for the sentiment. I hope it inspires the recipient to press on.

What an amazing card! Love the detailed frame around your sentiment of encouragement, which is so very appropriate for your friend. She has a long recovery in front of her, but just trying each day is the way she will gain strength, and your words of encouragement will certain help her realize that.
