Get Well Soon Gift Card Holder

To find out about the giveaway going on right now, please click here.

Today I have a super simple gift card holder to share with you.  Now I typically wouldn't do a gift card holder as a get well card, but wanted to give this friend who was recently diagnosed with cancer a special encouragement as she goes through the next few rough weeks and months.


Here's what I used:
Cricut Artiste cartridge - The card uses the card feature on the "j" key and is cut at 3"
Georgia Pacific white cardstock
DCWV - Nana's Kids matstack (green paper) - Cut one piece at 2 7/8" X 3 3/4" for the back of the card and 2 pieces at 2 7/8" X 3 1/2" for the front and inside of the card
3 Girl JAM Witches Brew ribbon
Spellbinders - Classic scalloped ovals large
Lawn Fawn - On the Mend stamp set
TH Distress ink - Peeled Paint
TH Distress markers - Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Crushed Olive (and my water brush)
Want 2 Scrap purple pearls
Black Archival ink


I added the cut mats to the inside and outside of the card.  The outside mats were adhered over the ribbon to hide the ends.  The white edges of the card were softened by using Peeled Paint distress ink.  The turtle image was colored using the distress markers and then blended with a water pen.  Super simple and still fun and cheerful.

Thanks so much for stopping by and remember to enjoy the little things today.
