Tropical Nursing

STAMPS: Sentiment (Lawn Fawn).
PAPER: White, brown, black and silver cardstock.  DP - From stash.

EXTRAS: Scrub Shirt Template (StampnDesignStore); Small circle punch (Sizzix); oval punch (EK Success); triangle die (Spellbinders); 

I've been meaning to post this card and for a couple days.  I made this card for the Hubs for Father's Day.  He's an ER nurse, a big Jimmy Buffet fan, and beachy guy.  He also likes switching it up some and wearing masculine print scrub shirts to work.  There are not a lot of places out there who make print scrubs for men.  I have made him some in the past.  I did find a  online in Hawaii who makes Hawaiian/tropical scrub shirts and ordered him a couple for Father's Day.  

So I figured what better card for him than a scrub shirt card.  Well....just like in the scrub world, in the card making world there are very few scrub shirt card templates.  In fact, I could only find one place:  Stamp-n-Design Store.  The template I bought came with a box tempate to go with the scrub shirt template in a set and with a nurses hat template to adorn the top of the box.  Along with them came instructions on how to make the stethoscope and pocket.

This is my first attempt at it and of course, I didn't start it til ---- Father's Day.  Lucky for me he worked the night before so it gave me the morning to do it.  I enlarged the pattern a bit to make it a 4x5 card instead of a 3x3.  My pocket is not as nice as I'd hoped but then again, I was rushing.  I'm thinking this may be a popular card shape for his colleagues and I may need to invest in some medical device dies (stethoscope, needle, beadpan).  lol
