A friend of mine on the other side of the country is recovering from an kind of serious accident and I wanted to make & send her a get well card.



Wood and woodworking are her passions as well as her career, so I dove into my moderately thorough woodgrain paper stash to make this. Also, last year she rebuilt a vintage camper from the frame up using wood for every part and surface possible. The only papers that aren't wood grain patterned are the card base (constellations/lightning & solid black) and the pennant bunting.



I used papers from a cardstock pad that has lots of woodsy papers to make the envelope. I'll print the address on a white label to help out the USPS.



I used my Cricut to cut it, the svg files came from svgcuts.com, the Camp Firefly kit.

That's making me feel better and there isn't even anything wrong with me. Well, much anyhow Cheesy.

You did an absolutely amazing job choosing and assembling terrific papers for this project. It looks wonderful.

This is absolutely beautiful. I cannot imagine any world where it won't cheer up your friend. I hope she is able to recover quickly. You are so thoughtful.

Thanks, pals! I dropped it in the mail this morning, so hopefully sometime early next week she'll get it.
