Get Well Treat

My husband had family visiting from out of town last week. I had never met them before, so it was nice going out to dinner and getting to know them. Unfortunately, the reason they were in town was because their 1-year-old girl needed surgery.

Luckily, everything turned out fine, and I wanted to make something special for her. I decided to make a matchbook card with a treat. I've never made anything like this before, but I wanted to give it a try.

I used Alphalicious for the matchbook cut and Create a Critter for the ladybug and grass. The grass is on foam squares for a little dimension.

Inside the card, I add fruit snacks and attached the bag with glue dots.

Here is a close up of the sentiment.
