Today’s project is a masculine get well card. The men in our lives get sick as well and sometimes you need a quick card to send to someone who has been under the weather.
My intention for this card was to use it as a sympathy card but then I read the greeting again and I reconsidered. I’ll recreate the card using a more fitting greeting on the outside.
Masculine Get Well Card Tutorial
- Crumb Cake: 4 ¼” x 11” scored at 5 ½” – this will be your card base; 3 ¾” x 5”
- Early Espresso: 3 7/8” x 5 1/8”
- Very Vanilla: 4” x 5 ¼” (for inside) and scrap for stamping the greeting
- Pear Pizzazz: scrap for die cutting leaves
- Old Olive: scrap for die cutting leaves
- Run the 3 ¾” x 5” piece of crumb cake cardstock through the big shot using the layered leaves embossing folder.
- Run it through again, this time cutting out the center of the cardstock with the second largest label shape from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.
- Sponge around the edges of the crumb cake cardstock using early espresso ink.
- Add this layer to the early espresso cardstock and that to the card front.
- Stamp the ‘sending healing hugs’ greeting on the scrap of vanilla cardstock using early espresso ink.
- Die cut it using the second smallest label shape from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.
- Sponge around the edges with espresso.
- Using dimensionals, add the greeting to the center of the card front.
- Die cut the leaves from old olive cardstock using the double leaf die from the Birthday Dies.
- Die cut the berries from the pear pizzazz cardstock using the double berry die from the Birthday Dies.
- Tuck one of each of these in behind the greeting, in the upper left and lower right part of the greeting.
- Tie a bow from bakers twine and add it to the card front.
- Sponge around the edges of the vanilla inside layer and add it to the inside of the card.
Have a creative day!
