Crazy Card Party Challenge #14 - Get Well

The challenge for this week's Crazy Card Party is to make a Get well Card, so I could not wait to break out one of my newer Cricut cartridges to create this Fell Better Soon Card!  I have to say - I am just loving these challenges - I have had so much new product broken in with the them!  Not only is this cartridge a first time use but so is the Paper Smooches Stamp set!

I added a little sparkle to the flowers by using some glossy accents to add some glittler!  Hee is a picture that shows the dimension to this card!

  1. All cuts are made at 5 ”.
  2. Cut 1 of the #1 from American Crafts White Cardstock to get the card base.
  3. Cut 1 of the F1+1 from Bazzill White smooth cardstock to get the insert and ink the edges in blue distress ink .  
  4. Cut 1 of the F1+1 from the American Crafts Blue Patterned paper and Ink the edges in blue distress ink.
  5. From Green Cardstock cut the #9 2 times – trimming off the leaves of one of the cuts, then score the leaves down the centre and glue to give dimension to the flower leaves.
  6. Cut 1 of the #10 from the Pink Patterned paper and ink the edges in pink in k.  Glue the first flower down to each flower and then score down 3 of the remaining flowers and add glossy accents and glitter to all 6 remaining flowers.  Once the glossy accents is dry glue the scored flower down to the remaining flowers to give some dimension .  Pop dot these flowers to the original green cut.
  7. Tie a piece of blue ribbon around the base of the flowers.
  8. Glue both the white and blue insert pieces to the card as shown.
  9. Glue the flowers thru the window of the card.
  10. Using the Cuttlebug cut the banner die and ink the edges in blue distress ink.
  11. Stamp sentiment in black ink on the banner and fold and glue across the front of the card.
