It was such a perfect coincidence that this week at City Crafter Challenge Blog focus was on sentiment and I was getting ready to make exactly such card!
One of the supervisors at my work was retiring and I wanted to make a card for her with RETIREMENT word as main focus of my card. :)
I created this sentiment on my PC and then used Spellbinders Squares to cut out and emboss a square for each letter and it's "explanation".
I used foam adhesive stack the squares.
I only added this tiny bow and some crystals to the card, not to take away focus from the sentiment...
I had to think outside of my "Shabby Chic Box" to make this card. Not everyone likes shabby chic cards, my favorite style, so I had to fit the style to the person that was getting this card: very modern and stylish lady, our department's trend setter :)
The card was too dimensional to fit into a regular envelope, so I made this stylish box for it.
I do have to mention that lady that got this card yesterday was so touched and she loved it. :) It makes me so happy to see expression on someone's face when they receive card from me, specially made just for them!
Well, I hope you enjoyed this post, I know I had fun creating this project. :)
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by...
