A special "Thank You" for my "Earth Angels"....and some good news!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone!  This past Wednesday I had my sixth PET scan in 13 months and the good news is that there is no evidence of  the cancer or new tumors!!!!!  Yah....I'm good to go for another four months.  Thank you God!

I don't know if I ever told y'all, but I call all of the medical people that have been taking care of me for the past fourteen months my "Earth Angels", for indeed, that is what they are.  I wanted to make them a special "thank you" card and I also made them some banana pudding and jokingly told them that I took out all of the calories...LOL  They loved the card that I made them and they have posted it on their Facebook wall.  I decided to make the card a "card in the box".  Here are some photos.

Here is an overhead view of it.  I used a rubber stamp and vellum papers to make the balloons and I put the names of all of the people and the doctors on the team on the balloons.  I then used my Bow Easy to make tiny twine bows for each balloon and I made a triple twine bow to go under the "thank you" circle that I cut with my Spellbinders dies using my Big Shot.  The "thank you", "for being" and "my earth angels" were all cut using my Cameo after I designed them in the software.

Here is a close-up of the subway art that I made for the front flap, which I glued down.  I used vellum and a matte photo setting on my printer so that the ink stayed wet and I could heat emboss it with clear embossing the look!

For the left flap, I went online and found photos of my two doctors, used Photoshop to combine the two photos and then used my Silhouette Studio software to place them within a heart and made them into a print and cut to cut on my Silhouette Cameo.  I then used a Silhouette cutting file to make some angel wings and crowns using silver glitter paper and is a close-up photo.

For the right flap I found a radiology symbol online and made it into a cutting file in my software.  I used the "inlaid" technique and cut it out of silver and black glitter papers.  Here is a close-up.

Making this card was a lot of fun and they loved it!!!  By the way, they loved the banana pudding too!  Thanks for stopping by and hurry back!

What brilliant news Pam, well done you!
Lovely lovely card for your earth angels....but I have to tell you, I didn't have my glasses on when looking at this post, and the picture of your doctors confused me....I mistook the wings beneath them, to me it looked like a very pretty push up bra!!!!!,
Lesson learned....wear your glasses!!!
