You’re first class

Hey!

Today’s card was made for my very good friend who is sadly leaving our company (another one of those, I know). I needed to make a card that would show how awesome colleague he was but also a card that would be more personal, not just one from my stash.

He likes to travel so I thought an airplane would be a cool theme for a card. I used scraps of paper from Crate Paper’s DIY Shop collection that included a piece of geological map of Italy (his home country) and wood veneer airplane from Studio Calico. I used some enamel dots, sequins, washi tape and wood veneer stars for decoration.

You are awesome / You’re a star

Hey!

I seem to make an awful lot of goodbye cards recently. Not all of them make it to the blog cause I keep forgetting to take a photo of them, but today I want to show you two cards made for my  work colleagues who recently finished their contracts and left the company.

For the first card I used a piece of navy patterned paper which I darkened on the edges. I used Adirondack’s metallic paint in pearl to create the splotches. I added any star-resembling embellishments I could think of: sequins, pearls, rhinestones, wood veneer and silver embossed stars. I love the effect!

For the second card I created a watercolour background using Distress Markers on watercolour paper. I stamped the bicycle, covered the frame with Glossy Accents and added a couple of sequins for some shine.

Happy new beginnings

Hey!

Today’s card was made a while ago but I didn’t have a chance to post it yet. It is a card for a friend, who recently moved to the other end of the world to start a whole new chapter in life. She took her dog with her, hence the little doggeh on the card :).

I stamped the sentiment using alphabet stamps and added some glitter on top. To create a background for the sentiment I used Distress Markers on watercolour paper. The embellishments I cut out mostly from patterned paper.
