Crafty Today: Get Well Pop Up Card

Get Well Pop Up Card

Another pop card I made last year for two very special people.  Same steps as this tutorial and I selected all of the doodads from the All Occasion Box Cards Cricut cartridge.  A very cheery, get well card that was well received by the recipients.  I created the card using the original Cricut and now that I have the new Explore Air 2, I might have to try making it again.

I know I have been away from the blog for some time, but my life has had some changes.  Mostly for the good.  I will continue to share my creations and thoughts about crafted living with all of you.  The look and feel of the blog will be changing for the better and I look forward to interacting with you more.  If you are a lover of my photography, then please follow me at crafted.living on Instagram.  Spring has been quite inspirational here in California so please join me.

Cricut Friday: Get Well Floral Card

 

Wishing a speedy recovery!

Wishing you a speedy recovery!

One of my colleagues is experiencing some health problems.  We miss her.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this card:

  • Cricut machine
  • Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge
  • Cuttlebug machine
  • Cuttlebug embossing folders
  • cardstock and patterned paper
  • adhesive and foam dots
  • circle punches

Fold the white cardstock so it is a finished size of 4.25″x 5.5″ and cut the white cardstock to 5.25″x 4″.  Cut the flowers at 2″.  Punch two circles per flower at .75″ and 1″ with circle punches.  Run the white cardstock and flower centers through the Cuttlebug machine to emboss.  Put the flowers together and use foam dots to adhere the flower centers.  Adhere the flowers to the embossed cardstock.

My goal was to make the card as cheerful as her personality.  Positive thoughts can be uplifting and give you the strength to conquer whatever is before you.  I hope this card provides a reminder to her that we care and wish her a speedy recovery.
