Welcome back to the craft room and today’s Flashback Friday A Goodbye Card post! For a while there at work I was creating a lot of goodbye cards. Today I would like to share another one with you. Let’s get right to it!
A Goodbye Card
A friend of mine is moving on in her career and to let her know how happy I am for her, and yet how sad I am to see her go, I made her this card.
To create this A2 size card, I started with Kraft card stock from Recollections. The brick wall layer was created with the Tim Holtz Alterations “Bricked” embossing folder. To add some interest to the embossing, I sponged on a bit of Aged Mahogany and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks.
I made the flowers with Ivory Recollections paper and three sizes of the EK Success Retro Flower Punch, the medium, small, and tiny. Before the flowers were shaped with my new McGill Paper Blossoms Toolkit and Molding Mat, the individual layers were inked with more of the Aged Mahogany Distress ink. To add a bit more interest a few of the tiny flowers were left without any ink, and I also used my Spellbinders Foliage dies with three different shades of green card stock.
The finishing touch comes with the matching envelope.
I’m really pleased with how this card turned out. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
Thank you for joining me for today’s Flashback Friday A Goodbye Card. I really enjoy making cards, but the amount of Goodbye cards I’ve made over the years is crazy. I am always happy that my co-workers are advancing in their careers, but I do miss each and every one of them.
Join me next Friday when I flashback with the directions for the envelope used in this project. Until then, have a wonderful and crafty weekend!
