I needed to make a card for an old work colleague who was retiring.
I based it on a sketch Di Hickman did in January but twisted some of the elements to fit.
I used Cuttlebug folders to emboss the circles and the Congratulations text which I also inked with silver to define the words.
The image is a Penny Black Stickeroo. Got a few sheets of assorted designs and not used them before. I love how there are no defined edges to the clear background so it is almost impossible to tell it is a sticker !
The sentiment is a chipboard embellishment from a QVC TSV. I inked around the edges and was so pee'd off as I'd smudged it so I ended up distressing it more to cover up the mistake. I covered it with 3 layers of UTEE and sprinkled glamour dust glitter into the last layer. I then bent it gently to crack the surface.
He absolutely loved it and was pleased that I had made it especially for him. I worked with him for 11 years and he is a lovely guy.
