Grad Nurse!!


My niece graduated last year to become a Registered Nurse. We are so proud of her. She has joined several of my cousins in this profession who are also Nurses and Nurse Practitioners. I made her this card to congratulate her using Cute Nurses from The Paper Shelter and Proud Nurse Set – 4899 (Art Impressions)

I stamped the image of the nurse on the right and inside of the card onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. For the nurse on the left, I printed the image out on my printer using High Quality Grayscale.  I coloured in the images with Copic markers and then fussy cut around them. I wanted the images on the front of the card to pop, so I ran them through my Xyron Creative Station and attached them to black cardstock. Then I fussy cut around them again. I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card using Versa Fine – Onyx Black. This was embossed using Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The sentiment on the front was printed on my printer, using digital stamp from Graduation Gnome With Diploma (KLM Digital Designs). Then it was die cut using Die-Namics MFT-489 PCD Fishtail Figs STX.

For the inside of the card, I couldn’t resist using this fun image from Proud Nurse Set – 4899 (Art Impressions), because I know especially today, nurses are working really long hours. My niece said the sentiment and was so true when she received her card. LOL! We have to give all of the front-line workers credit for all of the hard work they are doing during these Covid times.

I used Hammermill paper to create the base shape of the card 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut the background paper from Polkadoodles – Winnie Celebrations 1 – Top Banana Kit to the same size and inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers. For the sentiment on the front, I inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch. I popped up images and sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. On the inside of the card, I ran the coloured image through my Xyron Creative Station and attached it.
