Part of a Miracle

My youngest daughter is a Pediatric Intensive Care doctor in San Antonio, Texas. Thankfully, kids have been pretty spared for this horrible Covid-19 disease, but they still go into a hospital every day, exposing themselves to the germs that are part of a hospital environment. The hardest hit departments at the greatest risk are the Emergency and the Adult Intensive Card Departments. I saw this great digital stamp from Unity on the Splitcoast Stampers web site and decided to create some cards that I could send to location hospitals, particularly the departments at the greatest risk. All in all I made nine card, one of which I will sent to Janae for her to take to the pediatric intensive care medical personnel she works with. All of the women doctors in the cards has blond hair and blue eyes, because that it what my Janae has.

I wanted a collage of some of the images from Unity Stamps, so I selected three and arranged them to fit on an A2 landscape card front. The card Janae liked the best is the feature image, but I’ve also included a few of the other cards. Each has different colors used. All were colored with Copic Markers.

The first and last cards have the front of the cardbase embossed with a heart embossing folder. The rest I stamped right over the image with My Favorite Things Mini Heart Background using Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink, which is very light and mostly hidden by the Copic coloring.

All the focal image rectangles were cut down to approximate 5 x 3 3/4″. Darice Sticky Back Foam was added for dimension.
