Hello There! Sharing a card with you today that I made for a very special co-worker who works non-stop to please everyone in our office as she manages everything from booking flights, creating Purchase Orders, setting up meetings, etc. The list goes on forever. She goes above and beyond her position and we all love her dearly for it. She takes our cubicles apart and rebuilds them all when the need arises or adds in new cubicles for new hires, decorated all of the offices for management and at times you can even see her up on a ladder fixes ceiling tiles or changing lightbulbs. LOL!
So for this year, I just had to make birthday card featuring the stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie called “Fearless Farah“. I used both the image and sentiment from this collection. The sentiment couldn’t have described her any better. LOL!
To create the texture for the brick wall, I ran the Darice – Brick Wall embossing folder through my Cuttlebug using Bristol paper. Then ran Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge across the top of the paper. Next I used a watercolour brush and a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Tea Dye, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge to create the texture.
To make the sign I first embossed the sentiment and then used Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames die to cut it out. Edged around with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wild Honey.
