When I started this card, I thought of adding a different greeting on that little clipboard. lol….But then I went ahead and made a tame version.


The card base is 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ of chocolate chip cardstock folded in half. The patterned paper is from  Paper Salon Pristine swatches. I sanded the edges, taped them together and added chocolate grosgrain (Stampin’ Up!) and May Arts dotted ribbon around it.

I made the little clipboard out of True Thyme paper. I used the corner rounder on all four sides and added a punchout from the Round Tab punch on the top.  The paper on top of the clipboard is from the Notations designer paper. I punched the left hand side with the spiral  Punch.

I stamped Florence, the A Muse Nurse (2-7111E) on a Whisper White oval punchout and colored her with my new copic markers. I layered her on a Giga scallop oval punchout (Uchida) in chocolate chip. That scallop was just a bit too big for my card and image, so I cut it in half, cut 1/2 scallop out and put it back together.

My “tame” saying is from Stampin’ Up!’s retiring set Quick Thinking.

I made this card for the 4th A Muse challenge posted this morning.
