Masculine Get Well

Today I'm sharing a get well card for my best friend's husband who's also a dear friend to both me and my hubby.  Hopefully, by the time he receives the card, he will be back feeling well.  We just wanted to let him know we are thinking of him and praying for his health.




I have a lot of tea cup stamps, but not one mug stamp.  So I made this CAS card using my Cricut to create the mug.  I was so glad I found the image in my cartridges since I felt a mug would be more suitable for the masculine look I wanted. I sponged the Distress Ink background, adhered the mug and steam (love the steam!), and stamped the sentiment.  Bam!  It was done.

  3. This is a great masculine get well card Sheila! I agree and think that a mug worked better for that masculine feel you were going for. So glad you found a mug on a Cricut cart, good for you for rocking your Cricut! Love the "shadow" on the background I hope your friend is doing well soon. Hugs, Brenda
