Get Well Soon Trifold Card


I wanted to make a get well card for a friend, and it was so great to have the "image search" feature in Cricut Design Space to look for just the right cut.  I came across this trifold card in the Just a Note cartridge, one that I had totally forgotten about, but it's so cute!  I cut it at 5 1/4," which made the width small enough to just fit on an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of Papertrey Ink aqua mist cardstock (nice and sturdy).


To add a little interest on the front folds, I stamped My Creative Time's Grainy Wood Background in Versamark ink.  For my patterned paper, I used Simple Stories 24/Seven collection.  I also added a cute little flower button that I made with MCT's Stitched Button Dies.


Isn't this flower so adorable?  I love how nicely it cut out with my Explore!


The 24/Seven collection had this fun cork board paper, so I thought it would be fun to make a little note and "pin" it on there for the recipient of this card.  To make the note, I took some rustic cream cardstock, stamped it with the binder paper stamps from MCT's Get Schooled, trimmed it with one of the dies from Fun Stitched Edges Dies, and added a stamp from Many Greetings.  Then I cut a teeny silver circle with a die from Picture Perfect to be a little thumbtack.  Hopefully this card cheers up my friend!

Love your get well card. I have the Cricut Explore and I love it. I'm making tags to wrap around candy, as I type this.
Have a Merry Christmas.
