Dentist Card


I started off with these great embellishments from K & Company.  They are from a line called Life's Little Occasions that I found at my local Joanns.  Lots of different sets of cute stuff.  I picked up several in different themes.

I knew I wanted it to say something nice along with the word dentist.  So, I pulled out my trusty SP & Company Mix & Match sets.  "You Are A" is from the Friend set and Wonderful is from the Family set.  They were stamped using some Whisper White Craft ink from Stampin' Up.  I thought I was pretty clever to use the sticker as part of a sentiment so now it reads "You are a Wonderful Dentist."


For the dental tool embellishment I had lots of fun making my own paper designs.  The green layer was just plain cardstock that I stamped with my Stampin' Up Dot Dot Dot stamp using Versamark, then I embossed with my Stamp N Stuff embossing powder in Kaliedascope - which is basically clear with a little sparkle.  I rounded the edges with 1/4 inch setting on my corner chomper.

For the layer of blue behind it I sponged a piece of vellum with some Soft Sky Stampin' Up ink.  I added a plain layer of vellum behind it, because if I stuck it straight onto the Kraft color it would darken too much.  I also rounded those corners on a 1/4 inch setting.

I rounded all 4 corners of the main part of the card on a 1/2 inch setting using my Corner Chomper.  I love that I can punch through multiple layers with ease using it.  I finished off with some stitching lines done with my Sakura gel pen.

Thanks so much for visiting!

What a fun card. Dentist could be substituted for so many different things. Well the tools would have to be changed as well.
Hope your dentist enjoyed his/her card.
