|Dobie's got the right idea. For a few days, shut your cat in a small room or even a large dog crate, with nothing but the litterbox and her food and water dishes. (Keep the food and water as far from the litterbox as you can.) If she has no where else to go, she'll figure out what the litterbox is for. Then you can start to enlarge her territory slowly.
Also, you may want to treat the spot(s) on the carpet where she went with an enzymatic cleaner. If the carpet smells like cat urine to her, she will think it's okay to continue to go there. I don't know what cleaners are good. Maybe someone else can make a specific recommendation, if you are interested in that.
