I have been absent for a bit and I apologize. It seems life gets in the way of having a little fun in the scrapping room. Yesterday a very special lady, my MIL, had her last day of work before retirement. She has worked 26 years in the school system and is very excited to take a break and relax. So I made her this little card to celebrate her special day.
Image: Sassy Cheryl's Farmer Sally
Ink: Memento & Copics, Rusty Hinge & Scattered Straw Distress Ink
Paper: Fancy Pants Designs & Cryogen
Embellishments: Twine, buttons, lace, butterfly charm
Misc: distress tool, copic airbrush, edge punch
Style: Easel Card
I made this an easel card to give it a different flavor than I usually do. Again I distressed the edges, I seem to be doing a lot of that lately. But I felt it gave it a rugged farmer look. The school colors were red and blue, so I used them as my color basis. After I colored the image, I cut it out using a spellbinders die. I wrapped the card in twine and used a cute little butterfly charm to top him off.
On the inside, I used matching papers to coordinate. Put some buttons tied with twine to hold the card upright. I choose the buttons because my MIL is a sewer, so they fit perfectly. I finished her off with some lace and a Stampin Up sentiment.
