Design Team ~ "Better Coverage" Get Well Card

Pin It

Hello everyone!  It’s Kim from Katydid Cards here today to share a “beary” cute get well card.

I thought I’d keep with this month's challenge theme and create another card featuring bears…in this case it’s a bear with a bear butt and an em”bear”rassed nurse.  I know, my bear jokes are becoming un”bear”able, so without further ado, here’s my card:

I made this card with cut files from My Scrap Chick from their Medical Bear collection, adjusting the size to suit the card.  I cut them from Basic Black, Real Red, River Rock. Soft Suede and Whisper White card stock and Marina Mist DSP from Stampin Up.  The capsule comes from the digital kit Doggie Bowser MD from Sweet Shoppe Designs.  I enlarged it…a lot…and then typed my greeting using the “Andy” font and created a Print & Cut file in my Silhouette.  I attached the capsule with an Action Wobble Spring.

I sponged the edges of the bear body parts to create dimension.  I sponged a bit of Rose Red to Nurse’s cheeks and hand colored her eyes with a Copics Black Drawing Pen and Sakura White Gel Pen. This sits on a panel of Bazzill light blue embossed with the Dots and Lines embossing folder attached to a card base of Marina Mist.

Inside is a fitting sentiment: 
I hope your insurance has better coverage!  Get Well Quick!

I thought about using, “Why do you think they call it I C U?”, but I wasn’t sure everyone would get my dry sense of humor.  Which do you like better?

I hope you enjoyed my card and will be submitting your own Beary Sweet card for Connie Can Crop's challenge this month.  You can link up until the 31st of January.  You have a chance to win a great prize just by participating!  And if you have the opportunity, please stop by Katydid Cards to say, "hello".
