A good friend and colleague retired yesterday. We have worked together for 16 years, and she has added richness to my life. It's hard to see her go (but I am so happy that she's a stamper, and participates in my monthly card clubs!). She has been a terrific member of my management team (in my real life I am a nurse manager for a healthcare group) so I needed something special from her co-workers and me...here is her card:
We all had fun deciding which animal we are...and the card made her laugh.
Like yesterday's card (see it here), this is a large, square one. I started with an Early Espresso base, 5-1/2" x 5-1/2". I then took a piece (5-1/4" x 5-1/4") of vintage Designer Series Paper and cut a rectangle in the front. This was done (carefully) with my Stampin' Trimmer, as I did not have a die that was the right size.
From the Herd was stamped in Versamark ink on Whisper White cardstock and embossed with Early Espresso Embossing Powder. Then I colored the animals using the now-not-available Blendabilities. The above frame was placed over this stamped image using Dimensionals, and it was added to the front of the card (also with Dimensionals).
Finally a little bow was cut using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits dies, and I created a matching envelope with my Envelope Punch Board.
I'll miss you, Wanda!
