Heard You Caught A Bug - Get Well Card

This is a card I've entered in our County Fair. One of the categories is Get Well cards and I wanted to make a fun one.

The image is a digital from Dustin Pike ... I printed the image on a plain piece of card stock, then using the Center Point button on my Cricut, cut the jar around the image using the Doodlecharms cartridge. I colored the 'bug' with Copic markers and then covered the jar with a thin coating of Glossy Accents to make it look glass-like. To make the lid, I cut another jar out of gray paper and snipped off the top, then inked it using a metallic ink. Finally, for the base, I cut another jar from pink card stock using the Shadow feature.


The flowers were cut using the Walk in My Garden cartridge ... I added buttons, twine, some doodling and leaves made using a Martha Stewart punch. All the card stock is from Papertrey Ink and the designer paper is from K and Company. The sentiments were computer generated.

Here's a peek at the inside. I've entered four cards total. I should know the results of the judging this evening. I'll let you know I did ...

Hi Jo!

How did you get the type to line up so perfectly on the cardstock, and align the flower next to it so perfectly. Do set up a text box first? Thanks
