A Speedy Recovery and Get Well

A friend of mine will be having surgery soon so I decided to send her a cute surprise to help her recover.  The SVG project is from and the Collection is called Feel Better Soon found hereFrom this set the Rx Gift Box and Get Well Card (card is re-sized to A2 measurements)
Here's the shaped card: I added a separate paper pattern mat for the front (easily done using SCAL program by deleting nodes). The Letterpress Swirl Embossing Folder used on the popped up orange heart.  Cuttlebug Dot Embossing Folder used for the band aid.  The Kraft band aid is edges using brown ink and popped with foam squares. "Get Well Soon" is also popped with foam squares. All papers used are from Recollections.  Shimmer Dot mat is from my stash.
Inside message is stamped using Stamping Up "Happy Healing" (OMG - this stamp set is from 1999!). Orange adhesive rhinestones attached at the top right corner.
Here are the pill boxes. The original size was larger. I wanted to make a couple pill boxes so the size has been reduced to finish 3-3/4" x 2-3/4".  Pill box is a metallic Copper card stock from Wausau Paper (I found this random paper pack at a Ross!!!).  Pill Lid is a metallic white card stock also from Wausau Paper. Red and Black card stock from scraps in my stash.  Pill box labels were computer generated, punched using a Stampin Up small oval punch.
Here's another view:
Remove the lids to reveal some treats: Peanut Butter Cups, Hi Chews (a sweet Japanese candy), and Japanese seaweed crackers.
These pill boxes and card turned out great - I am certain the pill boxes will be used again for a birthday, too!
Thank you for coming by today to visit!
