This card is A5 in size and is made by simply scoring and then folding an A4 sheet of white linen effect card in half.
Wooooooooooof ………looking at this card/picture now, this card is so uncharacteristically over the top for me, talk about overkill, but, if you can’t be over the top when a colleague leaves work, when can you? I made a set of five leaving cards for work before I left (!?!?!?), and this is the third, so I apologise that there are still another two to come! I really need to work my through my vast box of adhesive alphabets and these cards seemed to be an ideal way to help do it.
Anyway, once I had sorted out the various word plaques, mat and layering them on various matching colours, I started to arrange them, and as you can see from the size of some of the letters I have had to do some very careful unpeeling and overlapping in order to make the “word plaques” fit, perhaps, one day, I will get them to fit together first time, without all this fiddle fart!!!
To bring the design together I have used massive“overkill” with layered, medium sized, punched flowers and foliage, in purple Bazzill card, with turquoise flat backed gems in the centres plus a bit of faux stitching and strategically placed groups of three dots drawn with a black fine liner pen.
A little over the top for me, but I think it works.
