We'll Miss You and Good Luck!

I made these cards a few weeks ago for two of my lovely colleagues who left to go on to bigger and better things. Their last day was Friday (*sob*) and they received their cards so now I can post them.

I had to make these big so that everyone could write in them (they're 5" square), and I received quite a few compliments on how pretty the cards were, but I didn't tell many people I made them - I don't like to blow my own trumpet! Pretty silly I know.

So here they are:

We'll miss you

Inside it says:

And here's a close up of the Black spica pen I used to accent the flowers:

Click on it to look at it a bit closer - it looks like gold dust! Pretty hey? :)

Card/paper - Quill white cardstock, Canson Mi-Teintes in Azure, Cream and Orchid
Stamp - Contemporary Design Elements from Mujka Chic (MyGrafico)
Ink - printer
Extra - "Black" Spica pen
Tools - Carl rotary trimmer, Helmar glue runner, scissors, Tombow mono multi liquid glue

And here is the second card - for a girl who loves green:

Good Luck!

Inside it says:

The second card is completely digital, printed using matte photo card from Kodak. Everything prints so beautifully on it, but it isn't cheap so I save it for special projects :)
