Get Well Soon Card

Well today was good and bad !! Bad because my poor baby (10yr old) got sick he had fever, chills, throwing up, and loss of appetite. So I picked him up early from school and he rested all day sweating it out. The good thing that came out of it was I was able to stay home with him (instead of going to my night job) and had plenty of time to cook him chicken soup (which he didn't eat and ate a PB & J sandwich lol & later threw it up) and make him a card. NOW I CAN NOT TAKE CREDIT FOR THIS CARD !!!! A while back i saw it on Karli's blog http://craftingwithclass.blogspot.com/ She is very talented lady if you haven't checked out her website you probably will now!!
Here is a direct link to the video for this card: http://craftingwithclass.blogspot.com/2010/05/tissue-box-pop-up-card-video-tutorial.html#comment-form

The bear I got from sizzix die the paper is fuzzy and soft; the brown strip i cuttlebugged with dots folder, I then sanded it a little, and used different markers to color the dots. Also used Martha Stewart border punch which i love and just recently got; 1st time using it. 

The heart he's holding and on the inside were leftover hearts I had made from the V-day projects earlier.
My sons name used Old West cartridge, The balloon hearts is from Sweetheart cartridge. The words Get Better & Ah Choo are from Wild Card Cartridge.
I used my white gel pen to outline the hearts and right a little poem inside. 

The 2 sided paper i used is from Martha Stewart and I used 1 sheet to make the card and tissue box. The poem i made up real quick says: Hope you feel better! Your pillow couldn't have been wetter! Mommy will take care of you; when your sick and feeling blue! I love you always Love Mom
alittle corny but i was just trying to make it rhyme and finish to give it to him. ( The pillow being wet cuz he was sweating ALOT !!)

side view (just used half a tissue and  I made the opening by hand)
Hope you'll like it I know i sure did when i saw it and it was super easy.
