Doctors and Nurses

The challenge theme this week at AiFactory Challenges is Under the Weather.You don’t need a AIFactory image to join in but there are some freebies if you’d like one of their images.You have until Wednesday 30th March 11:59 EST to upload your project.Stop by the challenge site to check out full details.Don’t forget to take a look at the wonderful DT creations while you’re there!

Here I’ve used Little Doctor Medical Cliparts.I’ve devised a card incoporating a tissue holder.I took inspiration from Splitcoaststampers Treat Box Card by Melanie Schulenberg .The meausurement for the box part wasn’t big enough for what I needed so I altered the sizing to suit.This was a major achievement for me.I REALLY don’t do meausuring!I even have trouble when the instructions are clearly laid out in front of me.I also flipped it so the card opens like a normal one.As well as the Nurse I printed out a plaster and stamped the greeting on it.It’s layered onto a real piece of bandage!

Here’s the inside :

I made the insert in Word and changed the font in Word Art.I thought this one one went rather well with the cliparts as it has the same shadowing underneath.Mind you with the horrendous cold I’ve picked up I may need to keep this one for myself  😉

I had so much fun making this I didn’t stop there.This next project is far simpler.

I took a Christmas tin,one of many I have stashed in my cupboard, for this one : 

I resized,printed and die cut the image and layered it onto another die cut piece.I edged them in Metallic Silver Promarker :

Because the rest of the lid and tin had no Christmas images and I quite liked the stripes I just added some grossgrain ribbon and some more cliparts resized to fit :


In case you hadn’t guessed it’s for keeping plasters in!

    Two super projects Lisa.

    The tissue box is great idea, seen it done with tea lights, but this idea is so useful and different as a get well card.

    Thank you for sharing with us at Allsorts this week.
