ANOTHER RETIREMENT A4 SIZE CARD


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Thank you so much for all your good wishes on my DH health.

Was asked by my Daughter to make this card for the lady who works on the reception desk where she works as she was retiring.
She wanted and A4 size card so everyone who works there could sign it.
So this is what I made for her.



As I said this is an A4 size card made from A3 white card that was 300 GSM  in weight, and  it's from the Hunkydory A3 Pads of card which is wonderful to work with, and such good value as it's only £14.99 for the pad of 50 sheets.
Used Hunkydory card with a sequin finish for the main part. 
The flowers and lace are from
 The Works, and the Corner Die was a freebie in a craft magazine a few years back.
The image is Hunkydory also, and the inside is Hunkydory paper, and I used picture from their little books to make the A5 cards inside for people to write their wishes on.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate all your wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
