SIP Challenge 52 - Cardmaker's Choice - Card For A Veterinarian


Hello everyone.  One year ago my friend Justin Krieger started the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge blog. This week is their One Year Anniversary and they are having a Card Maker's Choice challenge - 

And, not only do they have a blog hop happening but you can also win a few goodies!  I hope you can check all the posts out, show all the designers some love, and enter a card or project into the challenge.  

The card I made for the challenge is a card I made yesterday for someone in town.  Her sister's birthday is this weekend and, since her sister is in the first year of Vet school, she asked me to make a card related to both.  You would think, with 6 dogs and 3 cats, that I would have stamps and papers related to animals, but I don't.  So I went to my favorite site - Etsy - and found THIS adorable digi image of a female vet - 


and then I searched a bit more and found THESE digi papers, which I knew would go perfect with the image of the vet.    

To make the card I started with a 5" x 7" Kraft card base.  Then I printed one of the digi papers, trimmed it to 4 3/4" x 6 3/4", distressed the sides, wrapped a piece of red ribbon around it, made a knot, and adhered it to the card front.  After this I printed the digi image of the Vet, 4" high, and colored her in with some Copic markers.  Then I trimmed the image to a strip 2" wide by 6 3/4" high, which I adhered to another piece of Kraft cardstock, 2 1/4" x 6 3/4", distressed the sides and adhered this to the card front.  Then I adhered a few sequins to the front and "Happy Birthday" to the inside.  Done!!

I hope you enjoyed this card.  Please let me know what your thoughts are by leaving a comment below.  I hope you can find the time to make a project for the challenge.  You have until June 19th at 8:00pm to enter it HERE.  Until next time...

Hugs from Brasil -

    1. Thanks Birgit. We have 6 dogs and 3 cats. I would rather have more cats since they are much easier to deal with! But...a dog cuddling next to me with unconditional love is priceless!
