Better Get Better


I love this card! For all of you older Stampin Up demos, you will remember this one from about 5 or 6 years ago... This card is great for someone who has been in the hospital and recovering (again a nurse thing LOL). There are some dimensions and pictures of the items used for this card below... I have the worlds most finicky camera.. Some of the pics are a little dark..

Items used:
*SU Whisper White, Blush Blossom, Mint Melody CS
*SU Mint Melody, Cameo Coral inks and markers
*Sponge
*Heart punch or die cut (I used a punch), corner rounder, SU word window punch
*SU Simple Sayings, Polka Dots and Paisley sets
*Irridescent cording
The basic dimensions for this card are:
*1/4 sheet Mint Melody CS
*10 1/2 "x 4" Whisper White CS, scored at 5 1/4"
*Bandaids were made using corner rounder punch with the Word windown punch


I have shown the dimensions for the pattern below. The top V cut is cut through both layers. The bottom V cut is cut through the top layer only. The heart is attached upside down under the V cut. The white card is pasted to the Mint Melody cardstock. Take an extra word window punch (blush blossom) and put it on the inside of the card at the top to add the look of skin at the V. Use the corner rounder on the bottom corners. When stamping the gown, stamp the inside of the card too! It will show through to the front. Have fun and tell me what you think!

Oh my goodness. Allison sent me over and gotta say, this is stinkin' cute! Is it because I'm a nurse, too? Nah, it's just adorable regardless. Linda
