Well it is the end of the school year and summer is coming. Our students at work are leaving for the summer and wanted to say Thank You to there Clinical Instructor. In case you are wondering I work( as an X-ray Tech at our local Hospital. The students approached me and asked if I could make them a personalized Thank You card. How much more personal could I make it then to have each one of them on the card. They are a class of 8 and there is only one boy in the class. Because THANKS is only 6 letters I added an exclamation mark and someone holding a chest x-ray to give everyone something to hold. The letters are suppose to look like bones so that they all look like they are holding X-rays.
I LOVE MY GYPSY! This card would not have been easy if it wasn't for my Gypsy. I laid everything out on different layers (Thanks to the new update). The people were on one layers, their clothes are on another, all the bones and shoes on the last. I used both Paper Doll Dress Up catridges for everything except for the black x-ray background, I used George Basic for those. The letters are made from individual bones that were available on the Paper Doll Cartridge. I rotated them and welded them together to make the letters. The bones in the x-ray of the chest are from the skeleton costume in the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge. I did have to cut them out by hand a bit as it only draws the outline.
The base of the card is made from Pacific Point Cardstock. The card is made to fit a letter envelope (4 x 9 1/4). The multi colour pattern paper and the yellow pattern paper is from Stampin' Up designer series paper "Good morning Sunshine". The green pattern paper in from Stampin' Up designer series paper "Kiwi Kiss". I added 2 Pacific Point Corduroy Buttons to finish off the outside of the card.
I also decorated the inside of my card to co-ordinate with the front. I used some scraps left over from making the front. I also added a Pacific Point Blue Corduroy Button on the inside too!
I was able to enter my card into two challenges this week. One at The Sweet Stop for their "Sketch with a Spin" challenge. And the other was at a new challenge site Freshly Brewed Challenges for their "Anything Goes" challenge.
