Feel Better Grill Master

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well. After being gone last week, I'm playing catchup like you wouldn't believe. You think you have it all under control but I can testify, that's only an illusion...or delusion, lol. For my card today, I remade a card I made quite a while back. I needed a get well/feel better card for one of my brothers-in-law. Poor guy had a really nasty fall and ended up with fractured vertebrae in his neck, a banged up knee and a face that looks like he was in a prize fight! Ouch! This particular brother of my hubs is a well know grill master. So hubs say, can you make a card w/ a barbeque theme? Really? I've totally got that covered! Since I really liked the layout of my previous card I used most of it again. I left off the Happy Birthday part and made a tablecloth plaid layer using the woven plaid stamp. For the inside, I used the leftover frame (after die cutting it for the front) and added a feel better greeting and a die cut bbq grill.

The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the (ridiculous number) of Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

stamps: Grilling Guy, Boss of the BBQ Birthday, Woven Plaid, Cheerful Smiles
paper: white, black
ink: Memento tuxedo black, love letter, rhubarb stalk
accessories: Copic markers, Spellbinders A2 matting basics B dies, Lil Inkers stitched rectangles dies, Memory Box party grill die

Your plaid is perfect - and I love how you used the "leftovers"! I'm sure your BIL will appreciate your hard work!

This is a great card and I love the way you carried the plaid frame to the inside! The clean design of this card is super for a guy too!

Great card it will have him feel better in on time. I love the the way you used the greeting around the edge.
