Couple of get well cards

So in the last two weeks I've had two relatives (my grandma & my partner's uncle) who have been in the hospital due to illness (both experiencing dehydration).  Decided to make a couple of cards to hopefully make them feel a little better knowing that someone is thinking of them.

For the first card, I used the new Ribbons & Rosettes cartridge {bird2 on p. 48}.  I linked 4 of the rosette cuts (at 2" high) to make a half rosette (you would need 6-8 to make a full rosette).  Its hard to tell in the pic, but the sentimate ribbon is actually raised with pop dots.  The patterned paper is K&Company Que Sera Sera.  I'm hoping that it will survive the mail!  Didn't really set out for it to have a summery feel, but decided to submit it to the Cricut Cardz Challenge #100 which coincidentally happens to be to make a card incorporating aspects of summer. 

For the second card, I used Wild Card to cut a band aid card and Pagoda to cut the panda.  I ran the layer for the card through my texture boutique using a Tim Holtz embossing folder to get a sun ray effect.  Both the sun ray & panda are elevated using pop dots.

The sentiment inside both cards was printed on my color printer & reads: "If wishes could make you well…you’d be better already!" [scraplifted from a stamp I saw online (maybe on Everyday Cricut?) while looking for inspiration for get well cards].
