Doctor Edwin

I was asked to make some get well cards for church and this is the first one.


Edwin is colored with copics. His headpiece and stethoscope both have some stickles on them. I cut out an oval and scalloped oval out of basic grey. I lightly traced Edwin on to the white oval and then using a sponge and chalk ink made the blue shadow around him. The words were done on the computer using word art. On the blue circle around the words I wrote the words turn all the way around. Soo... you would knot to turn the circle to see the rest of the words. 

 You can't quite see all the words this time but it says "Listen to your doctor". I measured to find the center of the circles and punched a small hole with a long armed hold punch. Then I figured out where I wanted the words to be and put a small dot on the back of the oval through the hole so I would know where to punch that hole.And attached them together with a brad. The oval is raised with foam tape so the words will turn easily.The button is tied around the ribbon with scrappers floss to make the bow. Three nail head stickers are in the one corner. 

Here is the inside.
Hope you enjoyed this edition of Dr. Edwin. 
As always I love your comments. They mean so much to me.
