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 Sizzix 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.
