Nurse Betty Owl - Get Well Card


Hi! Today I made this card for Rachel Chattin. Joy, her daughter, expressed how difficult it is to see her mom so sick and I truely feel the same way too. Rachel, I wish you the best and pray for your full recovery :) I hope "Nurse Betty Owl" will help cheer you up in someway or another. God Bless you always.

To make Nurse Betty's Hat:
- Punch a Whisper White piece with the 2 step Owl punch (the vest only).
- Then invert and adhere the piece behind the owl's head.
- Use the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (4 petal flower) and snip the ends to make a red cross.



How I made the Scallop Rectangle Background:
- I used the Square Scallop die to cut a Marina Mist CS
- Counted 6 scallops from one corner and cut it, leaving the left over piece to overlap the bigger piece. This will make a rectangle for you when you align the scallops again.
- To hide the cut edge, I placed a CS band which represented a branch of a tree for the owl to perch on it. Isn't cute?

This is beautiful. I also made a nurse owl, but mine is not nearly as nice as yours. I love how you made such expressive eyes. For the cross I used the double rectangle punch. I have also looked at some of your other punch cards and you are really talented. Thank you for sharing your creativity.
