Feel Better Soon!!

I'm here with a very quick and easy card to make for someone under the weather. These cold winter days, I 'm sure you know someone who has a cold and could use a reminder you are thinking of them. This card is so easy, you may as well make a few to keep on hand! 

Let's make the card!

Cut card stock to make an A2 size card blank. A2 is your standard card that measures 4.25 x 5.5 inches when folded. ( Take a full sheet of 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of cardstock and cut in half across the middle. Score each 5.5 x 8.5 down the center of the card. Now you have two A2 card blanks. They can be used as standard side opening cards if the fold is at the left or turn the fold to the top and you have a top folding card.) This is a side folding card so your fold should be to the left side.

Take a piece of 1.5 x 8.5 inch paper for the left side of the card. I used some polka dot scrap paper I had in my scrap drawer. Attach to card front blank. Next take a piece of scrap white paper measuring 2.75 x 8.5 and add some holes by using a push pin or needle tool. This is optional but it added some texture and looked great with my theme of dots!

Stamp a band aid on some scrap white card stock (or on pink decorative paper and skip the coloring) with black ink. Color the band aid pink and in my case, color the heart red. I used a stamp set from Paper Smooches called Healthy Vibes. (For added dimension add some glossy accents by Ranger to the heart when you are done making card. It needs time to dry.)

Cut out band aid and use dimensional dots to adhere and pop up the image. Stamp your sentiment above the band aid with black ink. Tape finished panel to the right side of the card and round the corners. I used a Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper by We Are Memory Keepers.

Make a pile of these using your scrap papers to reduce your scrap pile and make someone whose feeling under the weather, smile!
