[Video]Quick Elegant Cricut Get Well Card

I needed a fancy get well card for my friend Melanie and saw this elegant "get well soon" cut on the Cricut Paper Lace 2 cartridge.  I knew the Cricut Explore machine would be able to cut this just perfectly and it did not disappoint!  Here are the cuts and sizes I used on the following cartridges:


In the video, you can see that I also decorated the envelope for the card since I would be handing it to her.

Here are the products used:

  2. Your laughter at yourself, just makes your videos. It is so comforting to know that the demonstrators are human too and have to redo things occasionally.

  3. I haven't done a Get Well Card. I have been working on a Memory album for my Mom who we lost in November. I am making 7 copies of that (one for each her children and her surviving sister). Also working on a family cookbook for that side of the family. It will have family tree, contact info and recipes in it. I decided a 3 ring binder format was best so it could be updated and added to over time. Trying to find time to do all the birthday/anniversary/graduation and now sympathy cards that I need this month. Right now my cricut is buried because of some home remodeling projects that we are doing too. Thanks Joy for all your great info.

  26. I like the Get Well Card.It was a cute card and it is good to have some get well card already made because you will never know when you will need one to send to a friend or family member that is sick so I am tried to
    keep at least 2 card already made for this special event.
    Thank you
