I wanted to make a get well card for the lady with breast cancer that was discovered by her dog. I had this idea of making a barn wood background, then laying the dog over the barn wood in some type of die cut design. I thought the sentiment should be customized for the card, talking about the miracle that is her dog. I finished the card tonight and I have to say, I’m a little bit disappointed in the end result. I’m not sure what I was hoping for, but it’s just a little bit blah. I think I need to put something on the front to offset the dog, but am not sure what that would be.
I was going to give the dog a pink collar for breast cancer awareness, but I have a girlfriend with breast cancer and she said she’s really gotten tired of the whole pink initiative, and feels like she’s almost branded with it. That made me rethink the color of the collar. Maybe my girlfriend is the only person who feels like that about the pink ribbon, but I didn’t want to take a chance. I even talked about it on the video, but now I’m thinking I should have Rich edit it out, because I wouldn’t want to offend anyone or hurt their feelings by discussing something so personal.
So even though I think the card is finished, I really think I need to add something. Maybe a one word die cut sentiment, but I’m not sure what would be appropriate. Get well soon doesn’t seem right, but I do have the die for it. I guess I’ll think about it a little bit more and hopefully I’ll be inspired to think of something that will make the card better than blah. I don’t want to send her this card as it is, so I’m going to get serious about a way to make it frisky. Frisky is definitely what I’m going for.
