Oh, the places you'll go...

I know I missed the birthday of the beloved Dr. Seuss, but I can still make a card (I'm only two days late!).

One of my residents at work is moving out of the house and out on her own. We wanted to send her off with a nice goodbye. I wasn't sure what kind of sentiment to use, because "we'll miss you" didn't seem appropriate for a workplace and "good luck" always sounds a little negative to me... so the best sentiment I could think of was "Oh, the places you'll go..."

No stamps on this card! I used mostly my Silhouette SD and good ol' printer. The kite images are from Lettering Delights "Banner Day" clip art set... which you get for free just when you sign up!
I cut all of the images on one mat in white card stock. Then I colored the pieces individually with distress inks and chalk inks. I eventually got carried away (get it?) with my icicle and orange Stickles.

Materials: silhouette SD, lettering delights 'bannery day', Echo Park 'springtime' pad, cutter bees scissors, printer, liquid pearls, stickles, distress inks 'mustard seed' and 'worn lipstick' and Colorbox chalk inks.

I made a matching envelope using the easy directions on my Scoreboard and I'm hoping the staff will sign it tomorrow :)

Enjoy the last hours of your weekend

  4. Rachel, I'm having a blog party for Silhouette's Free shapes from March. While I know this isn't the Silhouette shape - it is very similar and I'd love for you to link this project up so others can be inspired!
