The other student casual we had working with us for a few months recently graduated, and will shortly be returning home (overseas) to get engaged then married.

This is the farewell / congratulations card I did for her from our team.

Farewell card

The stamped image is actually on a background I made on watercolour paper.  I sprayed it with glimmer mists of various colours and also sponged ink on it.  Then I stamped background stamps in solid shapes and texture patterns using chalk inks before stamping the central flower in a darker colour.  This was on a large A3 sheet, which I have cut up and used pieces of for a few different designs.

The stamped section was then edged with ink, mounted on gold, backed onto floral paper, and then layered onto more gold before being put on green cardstock

Farewell card – inside

Inside the card, I have folded a piece of A4 paper and used a lace edged doily punch to created the scalloped effect.  the sentiment was stamped in burgundy.  then the paper was attached to the green cardstock.

Farewell card – envelope

The envelope uses the same green and burgundy colours as the card.  The flourishes have been stamped on the left hand corners, and the edge swiped with ink.  The flowers have had gems placed in the centre.

Over all I was very happy with this card and envelope set, and I was very pleased with the way the background watercolour paper turned out.  I will try that again, perhaps with different colours and images.
