Happy

Inspired by this card by Julie Ebersole, I made this fun little number for a former co-worker who is retiring next month -- my cohort is leaving the workforce in droves.

This awesome sentiment is perfect for so many occasions.  (Love when the font matches the sentiment.)


Hard to see, but there is a small amount of gold Stickles on the card behind the vellum panel.  Oh, and using washi tape for something other than holding down a die...


I sponged on the Stickles through a stencil.  That was interesting, as the sponge is now permanently stickled....The sentiment is embossed on vellum and colored (on the flip side) with Copic markers. 

Sentiment from Essentials by Ellen by Julie Bold Blooms.   #essentialsbyellen

MOOD WHEN DONE = Happy

  1. I like the touch of stickles. adds an extra punch of gold sparkle! of course the washi tape was the first thing I noticed. I just love using that stuff! :) I know your friend will be so tickled with your card! :)

  2. Gorgeous! Love the touch of graphic black and white - keeps it from being too sweet and gives it a bit of 'edge'!

    1. thanks; I debated that tape, thinking it didn't fit. But I decided using black only once wouldn't get me arrested!
