Sorry You're Leaving

 Happy New Year to you all – I hope 2017 will bring you all love, friendship, gold health and much happiness

Its been a long long time since I was blogging on a daily basis and that is sad as I love to share my creations with you and reading all your comments, you love to read how I made the card.

So its New Year and New Start and my 1st card is one I made for my partners work colleague who had found herself another job and I was asked to make a card that reflected Jodie and her personality, and here it is!

The kit was purchased from Craftsuprint but I am not too sure who the designer was, sorry!

 So I cut out all the elements and started with a white 8x8 scalloped card blank , I trimmed a sheet of aqua coloured card to fit leaving a border then the same with a lilac sheet. These were taped to the card blank using DST and then a couple of pieces of metallic lilac ribbon was stuck across the top left and bottom right corners. The main image layer was glued centrally using sticky pads and the 2 further levels were done in the same way. 

The decoupage elements were adding again using the sticky pads, next was the sentiment which I stuck to the top left of the card.

All that was left to do was decorate the front, to do this I added 3 lilac gems in a line at the 4 corners of the aqua card layer, placed tiny pink on the flowers in the background and then a hand tied bow to top right corner, and a few drops of glossy accents were added to the rain splashes and glitter to the wings.

I printed the insert twice, the left side was left so the card could be signed by work colleagues and the verse added to the other side,

And finally on the back of the card I added a naughty sentiment which really did fit Jodie perfectly!!!

I do hope you have liked the 1st card of 2017, I have so many to share so you may even get a couple in one day!

Happy New Year everyone
