Large Leaving Card for a Male Colleague.

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How has your week been so far? I can't believe we are so near the end of term only two weeks to go. There are lots of things to get done before then. I am looking forward to the time off I know I am very lucky to have this type of job.

One of our male colleagues is leaving at the end of term and I have made a card for our group to sign. I am also working on something for the children to give him when he leaves. I found out recently that another one of our team is leaving so that will be another large card to make before the end of term.

This is an A4 card. I tried to keep the design simple and the idea of the colours came from the football team he supports. The stars were cut with a nested die set that came free with a magazine some time ago. 

The thank you die is one of Sue Wilson's. 

For the background I used some word stamps by Visible Image I stamped them in Perfect Medium and heat embossed them with red, blue and clear. Then I inked over the page with a couple of shades of  Distress Ink before finally spritzing it with water. 

This card has nearly all of the signatures now and I have manged to get some of our occasional visitors to sign it too. The card from the children is coming on well too I won't be able to share that one. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
