Sorry You're Leaving

My OH asked me to make a card for a colleague who is leaving their department next month.  A rummage through my stamps and dies revealed I had nothing suitable!  After a bit of hasty online shopping I bought this Crafter's Companion stamp and die set - perfect for Darnell's NBUS Challenge.  I also made a matching tag for the present they are going to buy.

To make the card I die cut 'sorry' from turquoise card and set it aside.  I trimmed a piece of floral paper to a square, setting aside the strip I had cut from the side, and layered it onto turquoise card.  I put the panel into my MISTI and placed the die cut onto it so I could line up the sentiment.  I removed the die cut and stamped the sentiment a couple of times to get a good deep colour.  I adhered the panel to the card front and then attached the die cut above the sentiment.  

To make the tag I took the floral paper I had set aside and attached it to a piece of white card.  I die cut the tag and attached a piece of turquoise embroidery thread through the hole.

To make this card and tag I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Crafter's Companion Gemini 'Sorry You're Leaving' stamp and die and Creative Expressions 'Pierced Tags' die
     Versafine Deep Lagoon ink
     Lili of the Valley 'Beach Bliss' paper
     Turquoise matt and white matt card
     Turquoise embroidery thread

I am entering the following challenges:
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies - April Challenge
     NBUS Challenge - Challenge #13 (my new stamp and die set)

A great leaving card and tag Kath, and the new die and sentiment will be very useful to have too. I love the pretty LOTV paper and the matching matted card which go together beautifully. x

How cool that such a stamp set exists! There's a sediment for everything, isn't there? The whole card design and matching tag are perfect for the occasion and I'm sure the recipient loved it! Well done, Kath, and thank you for sharing at NBUS! Take care and keep safe! Hugs, Darnell
