Since I didn't put a sentiment on the front of this get well card, I needed to come up with a title for this post, so "prayerful get well card" it is. It's sort of a play on the word "powerful," since I believe in the power of prayer. I made this card for a neighbor who had open heart surgery last week. She is pretty young to be having double bypass surgery. I'm not positive of her age, but I think she's about 48. She's had a few rough times in her life, surviving cancer twice, and now this. I plan to take a meal to her and her husband when she gets home from the hospital, and I will give her the card with the meal. Here are the details of the card:
Size: 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
I don't take credit at all for this card. The credit all goes to Kittie Caracciolo at Kittie Krafts. Check out her blog here. She makes amazing cards and gives great tutorials. I even pinned one of her cards on Pinterest with the caption, "Someday, I'll be able to make cards this pretty (hopefully)." Thanks Kittie!

Bible: Inspired Heart Cricut Lite cartridge cut at 4 1/2". When this cartridge came out, I really wasn't that thrilled with the images. I decided to buy it a few weeks ago when I found it at a steal for $12.50 (with free shipping). I thought it would be great for get well and sympathy cards, and so far I really like it. The images are simple but well put together. Obviously, I will only use a few of the images, but for the price, it was well worth it.
I embossed the gold and background papers using my Cuttlebug (my second favorite toy, after my Cricut).
Flowers: Punches -- using one of Kittie's great tutorials -- check it out here. (I didn't have one of the punches she used, so I improvised with what I had and used a little gold Stickles in the center.)
Leaves: Martha Stewart punch as well as a Spellbinders Leaf die (love it).
