Sorry You Are Leaving

Morning my crafting friends, last day of the week, so I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead.

Today one of the Male members of our team at work is leaving to go and teach English to EAL students in Hong Kong, he got his Doctorate in English about 18 months ago so is now going to make use of it! We will miss him as he has a wicked sense of humour, he's young, single and got no ties so good luck to him. Anyway I was asked if I had a card in my collection, the only one I had was this one, was not sure whether it was suitable for a Man but like they said it did not matter as he would probably throw it away anyhow!!!

I made a base card out of Spring Green card, embossed some White card and layered that on top. Using a piece of the Spring Green card I placed it onto a Self Adhesive sheet and covered it with Diamond Sprinkles, I matted this onto the White embossed card. 

I die cut the Scandinavian background out of White card and attached this on top. I had some old rub on letters so I made the sentiment out of these onto a piece of Spring Green card matted onto some White card and placed this across the middle of the card as seen.

Using Rich Green card I die cut two sets of the Trailing Ivy and placed these top and bottom of the sentiment. This finished the card.

Items Used:

Creative Expressions Foundation card Spring Green
Creative Expressions Diamond Sprinkles
Creative Expressions Sue Wilson Scandinavian Collection Background
Creative Expressions Finishing Touches Trailing Ivy
Sheena Douglas White Stamping Card
Tattered Lace Embossing Folder Fretwork
Black Rub on Letters

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx

  7. Evening Jacquie, this card is certainly suitable for a man - no flowers, bows or sparkle !!!. If he is just going to throw it away perhaps he doesn't deserve it. Love the ivy die that you have used. Friday comes around so quickly. Have a good weekend. Janice xx

  8. Ideal card for a man. Really lovely.

  9. Oh Jacquie,
    What a lovely card, I love that Scandinavian background as it is more open than some of the other background dies, so you can see more of the detail of what you have matted behind it! The Trailing Ivy is a good 'male' alternative to flowers! Your whole card works so well!
    I hope it was appreciated,
    Have a lovely weekend,
    Sandra xxxx
