Get Carded: Welcome Home

Hello! A brother who'd been hospitalized for several weeks was finally deemed well enough to return home. Being the nice sister that I am (well, sometimes, at least!), I made a greeting card to honor the occasion and sent it to him. 

Here's how it turned out:

And a close-up:

Materials used:
  • white card stock
  • piece from vintage atlas
  • blue art paper scrap
  • bird image stamped in blue ink onto vintage wallpaper scrap
  • solid dot image stamped in blue ink onto paper with the letter "A" on it (initial of my brother's first name)
  • "WELCOME HOME" stamped in blue ink onto ledge paper scrap
Kind of a simple card, but I didn't think my brother would want one with a frilly look to it. 

This card expresses a simple sentiment but important sentiment: he's finally home after a long hospital stay. And for that I am very grateful!
