This Get Well Soon Daisy Circle Card is another in the line of circle cards. I made a Bon Voyage and a Birthday Card like this too.
I really like how this card turned out. It is colorful and happy. Anyone would love to get this card if they were sick. I know it would make me feel better! This card is easy to make but has a lot of little pieces.
You will need:
I did this card in yellow and purple to show an example of a complementary color scheme. If you would like a copy of my free e-book on color combinations, you can get one here. You can choose any color you want and this booklet will help.
The base card needs to be two sided because you do see both sides. Patterns would work well with any part of this card. The circle is made from glitter paper. Just don’t use too many patterns. This would get confusing and make sure the pen shows up.
Cutting the card
Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing. I used a black gel pen. Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut? You can see the trick here. I used a font called Anderson Silfa and you can get it from Creative Fabrica. I have a membership there so I get it for free. Check them out. They have daily freebies and lots of graphics and fonts. They have sales on memberships all the time.
There are lots of pieces with very intricate cuts. Be careful taking them off the mat.
Assembling the Daisy Circle Card
First re-crease all the folds. This is essentially a gatefold card turned sideways so make sure it folds properly.
Then glue all the embellishments together. It is pretty simple just make sure you get the right layers together on the heart and the daisies. Look at the picture if you have trouble.
Once the circle is together and the glue is dry, attach the top half of the circle to the outside of the top flap. Do not put glue on the bottom half or this will glue your card shut.
And your Get Well Daisy Circle card is done. It fits in an A7 envelope for mailing.
