The second person to leave was a workmate who has moved to Melbourne, as her partner lives there.  L is obsessed with all things French, so I used that as her theme.

Stamp Stampington’s ‘Visit to Paris‘ by Claudine Hellmuth onto smooth coated cardstock with Versafine ink.  Edge in blue ink, layer onto black cardstock, then onto Kaisercraft Bonjour Paris striped black paper, and then layer on to black square envelope.

Tattered flowers die cuts from other Bonjour Paris papers edted in blue ink then added – three stacked in bottom left corner, and one single small flower on top right.  Torn strips of blue french themed Cavallini & Co paper tape (French Ephemera collection).

French farewell - inside
French farewell – inside

I decided to be fairly simple inside.  I put a piece of white paper in the middle.  I used one of the tags from the Bonjour Paris paper stack that matched the paper I had used on the front.  Edged in blue ink, and stamped ‘Au Revoir’ in Hero Arts Printer’s Type letter set.

L was delighted with the result, so I think it all came together well.

I make arty mixed-media things, & write fantastical things (with kissing), & do musical & dancing things, & play gaming things, & do weightlifting things, & organise fabulous event things. But mostly I wrangle cats. Renaissance woman.
