Wishing Well & Doily Borders

Hey Guys!

I had a request on the forum from magpie saying:

Years ago I saved a picture of a card which I would like to make now as a get well card. It has a wishing well and flowers on it and the sentiment is “Wishing You Well” — cute,eh?
If possible, could you make a cutting file of a wishing well, please.

I thought that this might be an image that lots of you could get some use out of too so I was more than happy to give it a go, I hope you like what I’ve come up with :) I have added digi versions of the Wishing Well for colouring or paper piecing and a few pun-ny sentiments along with the cut file, there’s also a new set of border cut files to add to your collection too.

I do find that cut files can sometimes look a little flat so I like to add some detail or dimension to liven them up a bit. Today my detail came from adding a metal handle to my bucket using some thin craft wire, also from wrapping some beige coloured thread around the center bar of the well to give the look of rope, I tied the other end of the thread to the bucket handle. My dimension came from some vellum flowers and leaves I added at the base of the well and some pearls I popped along the doily border also from attaching the well to my card with 3d foam pads.


Here’s a close up of the Wishing Well, I sponged the different sections before assembly to add some depth:

    I also used a wishing well for a retirement card that held a money/gift certificate…. the sentiment on front was “We wish you…” Thank you for the wonderful digi stamp of the well! I will use it :-)

    Wow – these are fab Bird – thank you very much. Reminds me of a wishing well my dad built when I was younger. It eventually fell to bits!!!
