Have you gotten your flu shot yet? DH and I got ours last week. The doctor's PA is an adorable, kind, happy, efficient 20 something that is such a plus! I would love to have just a tiny bit of her serotonin! You would just fall in love with her when you met her. While we were in the office, we were chatting about balsamic vinegar. I told her that I have some that is very aged, thick, sweetish in flavor, and so unlike the balsamic on the market shelves. Because I appreciate all she does for us, I decided to give her one of my bottles. I wanted her to know we were thinking of her as well as being grateful for all she does for us. Well, to go along with the balsamic vinegar, I thought I'd make a card for her. She's very girly (with long, dark hair), so I decided to make the card pink and girly.
I chose the Nurse Tilda stamp which is available at Magnolia-licious. As a matter of fact, Diana has Doctor Edwin (the stamp that is exclusive to Magnolia-licious) and the minis of both Edwin and Tilda. You should pay Diana's Magnolia-licious Shop a visit. She has an amazing collection of Magnolia Sweden products!
Ok, back to the card. I cut the shape using my Nestabilities Grand Circle and Scalloped Circle dies. I lined the inside of the top and added gorgeous papers from Papermania. I wanted some texture, so I did some machine stitching. A touch of lace and some pretty flowers finished off the top. I don't like machine stitching to show on the backs of my cards, so I made a third scalloped circle and covered the stitching on the backside. Tucked inside is a nice, large tag on which I'll write a message. I added a "Made with Love" charm to the bow by sewing it to the bow. Tilda was colored using Distress Ink.
I hope you liked this sweet card. I'm not a pink lover, but I do love how this card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by!
