Wow, I’ve posted THREE TIMES within a week. The majority of my weddings for this year are done and I don’t have any more until September! So that means I can work on my blog a bit more, yay! ^_^
I had a request to make a box pop up card for a nurse that’s moving on into an educator role. This is what I came up with:
I pulled out stamps from Create a Smile’s Doctor’s Helpers, Mama Elephant’s Page Huggers, and MFT’s Beautiful Blooms Stamp Sets.
I was told this lady liked gardening so I decided to create my scene with the nurse mouse in a field of wild flowers. I absolutely love the Beautiful Blooms stamp set. I used the following ink colours on my card:
- Lawn Fawn Ink
Freshly Cut Grass
- MFT Ink
- Simon Says Stamp Ink
Key Lime hybrid
Another request that I had to incorporate was since this was kind of a farewell card, lots of people would be signing it, and my usual box pop up doesn’t have a lot of signing space so I decided to add an accordion style insert that would be contained using strips of matching paper and craft twine.
The decorative paper I used for my panels, as well as to contain my signing space is Recollections “Wisteria” Pack. The twine was also from Recollections. These items aren’t listed in my supply list but if you’re interested in them, you can find them at your local Micheals.
I didn’t have any sort of farewell kind of sentiments but I decided to use, “Best Wishes”, from Hero Arts Orchid Layering Stamp set.
