Get Well Soon

This card is made from an 8 x 11 piece of card stock. I saw this idea a while back and made this with the idea of making kid ones with suckers. Basically, you cut the layers but only on the top. You have the longer edge on the bottom and fold in three even folds and then cut each layer to make the pockets. You will still have one whole piece of card stock, just folded and each fold is larger. So the back pocket is the whole length piece of paper and so on. I then glued the edges to the side after adding any printing papers for decoration to the three front layers. It's pretty simple even tho I am giving you a convoluted way to do this. It will fit in a legal envelope when you are done. But use something pretty and fun.

I used various ways to enhance the card and the two tags is where you add your message. I folded a few tissues for the top pocket along with a stick used for rub ons that I attached a message to. A good old Popsicle stick is what it is but when its with rub ons, it becomes a specialized tool I guess. You can add a sucker or a gift card for online shopping in another pocket. Brads would work for the flower punch outs. It's a card to play around with and themes will come to you as gardening, back to school, graduation with cash tucked in and others are really open to this style. So have fun making some of these to use up all your scraps and textured card stocks.
