Good Luck card

I need to make several cards for people leaving their jobs. There are lots of people who need to sign these cards so there needs to be a lot of space to write - my immediate thought was a star card. So here's the first one.....



I made 5 x 14.5cm square card blanks, 5 x 14.5cm high x 13.5cm wide card blanks and 5 x 14.5cm high x 12.5cm wide card blanks. The letters and shapes are cut with Cricut cartridges.



I had to add part of the wording on the back, so added this round the oval, which was stamped with Botanical Blooms stamp set and inks from SU!



I randomly stamped images from the Organic Grace stamp set on the inside of the 5 smaller card blanks and on the sides which were going to be the front and back of the card, using SU inks.

I am really pleased with how this has turned out, just need to make the box and this one is finished - need to make a couple more now!

Got a good day today - NOT, just off to take my youngest son for an MRI scan, as he damaged his knee at the weekend then I've got a dental appointment this afternoon, what a lovely way to spend my day off, especially when it's such a beautiful day! Hope to grab 5 minutes in the sun at some point....
