It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Nurse Elizabeth Jo – Q007 for the main image, Speedy Recovery Background – U004 for the background and Calling The Doctor- G211 for the sentiment. We have a lot of nurses in our family and we appreciate all of the hard work they do, especially during these tough times.
I made this a pop-up card with the sentiment.
Above is how card looks like when closed. Below is card opened up.
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut to 11″ x 4.25″. I scored this at 2.25″ and 5.5″. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the images and sentiment onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut the background. I coloured in the background and the nurse with Copic markers. Once this was done, I fussy cut around the nurse. I cut around the sentiment with my cutter and then chopped off the corners with my 3/8″ We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. Using Scrapbook.com – Brights Smooth Cardstock, I attached 1 piece to the bottom half of my card base and cut the other piece to the size of 3.25″ x 1.5″. For the small piece, I used the same corner chomper.
The card was now ready for assembly. I applied the coloured background directly to the base colour. The nurse image was popped up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape. I popped up the sentiment onto the smaller pink background with a single application of U-Line double-sided tape and popped up the pink background with 2 layers of U-Line double-sided tape. This was added to the bottom part of the card.
