Kylie's International Blog Highlight May 2020

Hello, Hello my friends! Today's Make-It Monday is also going to be part of Kylie's International Blog Highlights for the month of May! YAY!

If you're here from the Blog Highlights page, WELCOME! Please subscribe to my blog (and Youtube channel) so you can be reminded to visit again. :-)

The theme for the Blog Highlight is "THANKS" and I can't think of a more deserving THANKS to be given, than to those who wear the face masks and scrubs at work.  Yes, I'm talking the medical professionals.  They are smack dab in the middle of all this Covid-19 business aren't they?  They're over worked, under paid, super stressed, and facing this thing head on.  Our HEROES!

So, my Thanks Card is with those individuals in mind.  I saw this tiny little facemask online and fell in love with it instantly! I knew I had to create a card with it and knew that I wanted to use it in the blog highlights as well.  It's absolutely PERFECT for a Thank You card for a doctor or nurse!

Don't you think?

In this week's Make-It Monday video, I show how to create this adorable little face mask.  It goes PERFECTLY with Stampin' Up's new community service printable PDF too! The sentiments on the front and the inside were created from that printable.  I used the Stitched Rectangles dies to cut them out of the sheet and to create a nice little stitched border.

The measurements for the little face mask itself are:

Designer Series Paper measuring 2 1/8" x 2 3/4"

Score it on the FRONT short side @ 1/2", 1", & 1 1/2"
Score it on the BACK short side @ 5/8", 1 1/8", & 1 5/8"

You'll also need a long strip of 1/4" cardstock lined with Tear & Tape for the sides & inside "spine" and a long strip of 1/8" cardstock lined with Tear & Tape for the top and bottom

Watch my video to see how to create the mask here:

I kept the rest of the card fairly simple, as I didn't want to distract too much from the mask. It's just so cute!

I would love it if you would vote for my card in Kylie's International Highlights. :-)

Just click the "VOTE FOR ME" button here, then click the little heart in the upper right corner of my card's photo. That's all you need to do to vote! Easy Peezy!

Thanks so very much for stopping by today my friends! I hope you enjoyed this fun little card!

Until Next Time,
Happy Crafting!
