Punch Art Card for a Doctor

My husband asked me for a thank you card to send to a doctor he saw, who had the best bedside manner!  But he didn’t want one of the thank you cards I had already made, he wanted a special “doctor” thank you card.

I didn’t have any doctor stamps to use, so I looked up punch art designs.  The “doctor” on the card below was CASED from stampedwithaloha.  I substituted some punches to use punches that I have  and this is how mine turned out.

Love of Leaves – Negative Space

Thank  for being patient while I transition from one location to another.  It’s a process to pack up my stamping studio for a winter getaway and then to get it unpacked and reorganized in a new place.  Yesterday I was able to unpack 6 totes of supplies so I am “almost” ready to get back to creating!

I’m hoping that today I will finish unpacking the last of the stuff we brought with us.  Once that is done, I’ll breathe a sigh of relief.  Life is good – we are so fortunate that we have the opportunity to be snowbirds.

The card I’m featuring todayhighlights how you can use ‘negative space’ as the focal point on your projects.
