School is OUT! My kids start their summer vacay with NOTHING to do. Well, not really. I’m going to drag them to the gym and have them borrow books from the school library. This idleness, alas, won’t last. They’ve got a few camps to go and we will go visit our family.
So, my dear sister graduated nursing school a few weeks ago. I come from a long line of medical professionals. My mom and dad are doctors and I have several cousins that are nurses. This is her second profession after being laid off from her first. She decided to return to school – go back to college to take required courses and then head to her first choice nursing school. With unbelievable rigor and determination, she finished – magna cum laude 🙂
So here is my card that I made for her.
I thought inking up the very cute image First Aid Mimi (4329H) was perfect for the card. I stamped the image with black ink, colored her with Prismacolor Pencils and then fussy cut. I added glossy accents to the pink crosses on the medical bag and her cap. I set aside.
I impressed a wood grain image on a white CS panel. I then lightly spritzed hues of pink and red with a light sprinkling of blue ink. I set that to dry. On a strip of vellum paper, I heat embossed a appropriate sentiment from Technique Tuesday’s Dude with gold EP. The strip was adhered on a diagonal to the card panel. On black CS, I die cut a word from the appropriately named die set Hooray (51-038) several times. I glued them together to create a more sold image. As I’ve done in my past cards, I added Wink of Stella and then Glossy Accents to the die cut image.
I then assembled the card. I added the panel to the card base. I then adhered my Miimi image and Hooray die cut. To finish the card off, I added several sequins all over the card.
We had a quiet celebration to celebrate my sister’s achievement. We are all so happy for her!
