30th Birthday Card For A Nurse

I was asked by my neighbour if I could make a 30th Birthday card for a girl who had just qualified as a nurse. I decided to use the Saturated Canary image called Heartstrings who is a nurse in her scrubs.Not in uniform like I had to wear when I was a nurse. Then again I trained with Florence Nightingale it was so long ago!!

I used gauze instead of ribbon and left it like a little rolled up bandage at the end.The clipboard was made using a tag die and I added the clip to it.The sticking plaster was just made using a piece of beige card and a swiss dots embossing folder.Finally I added some blue beads into the little bottle to look like a jar of pills.I finished it off with a large number 30 cut on my Cricut from Glitter card.

Image - Saturated Canary Heartstrings
Colouring Medium - Copic Markers
Papers - LOTV
Dies - Go Kreate tags
Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots

What a fabulous card for a nurse, love the image and all your added embellishments. Might have to get this image as still haven't sent a thank you card to the hospital...I'm so bad at doing cards for myself!

Hugs Erika. x
