Tri Fold Dr. Peanut


Happy Saturday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend so far. Did you get all your shopping done? As much as it freaks me out to be shopping in all the crowds, it must be nice to finish your shopping all in one day.

I made this cute little card for a very special little girl, who's having a really hard time right now. You can read about my friend Laurie and her daughter here. I sent the family a card a few weeks ago, but I want to send something just to Alison to hopefully bring a smile and let her know how many people are thinking of her and wishing her well.

This is a Tri fold card I designed back in October 2005 for Portland SU! Regionals. You can find a tutorial here that I wrote for Scor-pal . These cards are easy and fun to make.

My favorite part of the card is the little details in the image. You all know how much I love my Sakura Glaze pens... well, I added some sparkle under the clear glaze with my atyou Spica pens. So, the little disc on the nurses hat, and the toenails of Dr. Peanut are all sparkly and raised up. I also added some dimension to the peanuts on the side and under the image. (click on the image to see)




You can't really see in the photos, but it's really cool... you just HAVE to touch it! Love the sparkle that the Spica pens add.... and so easy to do in those little spaces.

I also used the yellow glaze pen on the stethoscope and more Spica on the flowers.





Supplies:

Stamps: Dr. Peanut (Our Craft Lounge)
Paper: Just Dreamy2 (My Mind's Eye), Neenah White, Prism Island Mist Light.
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Copic Markers C1, C3, E21, R20, Y21, YG11,R05, W1,G000.
Other: Sakura Glaze Pens, atyou Spica Pens, Circle Nesties, Cuttlebug, Ric Rac (Walmart), Curly Label Punch (SU!), Small Oval Punch (SU!), American Crafts White Ribbon, Scor-pal.

Enjoy your Saturday... thanks for stopping by!
