Another Leaving card and a box to put it in.

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? I hope the heat hasn't affected you too badly. I do know some people who have been quite badly affected by the heat. Not long now and it will be the weekend and there might be time to relax.

I am sharing another leaving card with you today. There are a few people leaving work at the end of term. This card is based on one I made a few days ago but it is on a  smaller scale.

I wanted to be able to make the box for this card from two sheets of A4 card I also wanted it to be large enough for a bar of chocolate as well. The dimensions of the card are 13cm x 19cm. I cut the mats with half centimeter increments. The top white mat I cut with the Sue Wilson Carina die from the Gemini collection. 


The flowers were made with a Spellbinders die they were cut from white paper that I found in my snippets box. The edges were inked with Distress Ink before they were rolled with my quilling tool. I cut the trailing Ivy dies from green card. Finally I made a tag with the one of the pierced tag dies. The words were cut with  Brittania dies. 


Here is the box it did take the whole width of  a piece of A4 card and I used two, one for the top and one for the bottom. I used my Hougie board to do the scoring. All you have to do is cut the card to size and all the measuring is done with the board it really is a good bit of kit. 


We have recently changed our laptop and I am learning to use  different photo editing software. You will have to bear with me while I am learning. One big plus is that you can put text onto the picture without having to go to another program, which is what I was doing before. 


Enjoy the rest of the week. I do hope that is doesn't get too hot again.

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
