Warm Goodbye

27 Jul

A time came to make yet another goodbye card. I wanted this one to be special, so I took time thinking of what I want to do and how I want to do it. My coworker loves pink and at first I thought I’d make a pink card, but I couldn’t pick a shade that would appeal to me and give me inspiration. Quite to the contrary, I felt like I wanted something in warm browns with a bit of yellow and gold.

Then, browsing through the net, I came acroos another Szuflada’s Gold&Vintage challenge: this time they were encouraging users to make a vintage card with a gold element and this finally got the cogs turning! It took me two evenings to finish this card, but I think it was totally worth the effort and time, don’t you?


The buttons I made myself, using the same paper you can see on the side – I wanted to add a little bit of contrast to the card. I also decided to add bigger buttons at the bottom to break a bit a monotony of this simetrical cards. Those buttons were fun to make and I can’t believe I haven’t used this technique before!

And in the end I couldn’t resist little joke and added a little piece inside the card:


So that there still was some pink in the end…


Yellow Ribbons

SpringĀ  is a bit slow to come over to Ireland this year, and although the cold-and-rainy weather seems to be finally shifting (fingers crossed that I didn’t jinx it just now!), I felt like I needed to brighten up the day a bit. Therefore I made bright and full of sun-like yellow colour card. Just a patterned paper with addition of some cardstock, ribbon bows and buttons – I think it turned out quite neat, and you?

As often, the card has no text, so can be used in multiple ways – would be nice for a thank you card, definitely could be a birthday card, or just a card to say few warm words to someone…
