Hello my crafty friends and welcome! Today I want to share with you a card I made to thank a nurse, except without a nurse image. Unlike almost every other card I’ve created there is absolutely no color on this card, it’s all die cutting and paper trimmers. I hope you will enjoy this as much enjoyed making it!

I then cut up paper from Moda Scrap Spring Flowers collection to 4″ x 5 1/2″. I kept the strips that I cut off because I am going to use them on the inside of the card. I then took Tim Holtz metallic paper in purple and cut it to 5 1/2″ x 3/4″. I planned to put the purple metallic paper on either side of the card to border the purple flower paper. I cut all of these papers using my Fiskars Wire Trimmer* in the 9″ size.
I then took my 1/2″ and 1/4″ Scor Tape* and applied it to the back of my papers. I then put the purple paper down on either side of the card base and then laid the purple flower paper down on top of it giving the paper a slight purple border.
I then took my EK Success Reverse Tweezers* and used them to hold my die cuts so I could put glue on them. I, of course, used my favorite Multi Medium Matte liquid glue* to glue down our die cuts onto our card.
Once the front was done, I had to focus on the inside. I took a thank you sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp ‘Thankful Flowers’ stamp set and stamped it on the inside using my favorite Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink*. I then took the two pieces of the floral paper I had saved and cut them to size and glued them down using 1/4″ Scor Tape.
Here is the final card! I wound up adding some Studio Katia Silver Foil Fusion sequins to the front of the card because it was looking a little plain. I really like the simplicity of this card. It’s clean cut and straight to the point. This card is going to a nurse so I wanted it to be special to thank her for being on the frontlines. What do you think of the card?
