Scrappy Get Well Cards

 I'm like a kid when it comes to playing around with my scrap pile.  Even though my "scrappy" cards don't compare to the cards that scrapbookers make, I really enjoy making cards with my little scraps of cloth. 
   Making cards also encourages me to actually mail a card in this busy day of the easy way out with social media. Recently, I needed to send a couple of get well cards. 
     Remember cutting out paper hearts?

*A Tutorial Tuesday*
 **************************

I just cut a piece of card stock in half to make 2 cards.  
One rotary cutter is dedicated for paper cutting.
 I was trying to make a visual, tactile card for this friend.


 This card was for a teenager that had shared my sewing room with me.
Took leftover hearts & card stock from messed up cutting and made some gift tags.
I'm always needing a gift tag.

How to Make an Envelope for These Cards
The envelope was made from a template that worked perfectly with this "half page" card. 
You'll find it @ http://houseofstirfry.com/chia/templates/A2env01.html . It will download as an image which will print on a full sheet of paper.  I used the ruler & rotary cutter to cut up to 6 sheets at a time.

  2. I think that your cards are very beautiful. I particularly like the hearts that have a saying inside them. What a great idea. Your words reflect the fabric hearts perfectly.
