Janet – You Are Awesome

My husband asked me the other day if I would make a card for his administrative specialist, since this week is when we officially give them thanks for all they do to keep work life running smoothly.  I colored it in some of her favorite colors and Michael tells me she even wore the same colors today when they gave it to her.  How cool is that.

I went on line and searched for a good image for administrative specialists.  There weren’t very many out there, but I did fine this one from BrokenBoxStock Clipart called Daydreaming. I printed it onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then colored it with Copic Markers, colors are listed below.

I die cut the focal image with a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX.  I love the way they give a finished look to any project.  I mounted it to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs Base Weight Onyx Black Cardstock with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

The sentiment is from the Neat and Tangled Awesome stamp and die.  The word Awesome was cut from Paper Accents Silver Mirror Cardstock and an additional three times from black cardstock.  They were adhered together with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  The secondary sentiment was stamped on a strip of black cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back and it was adhered just above the word Awesome and the card was done.

Having been in the administrative field for all of my career, it was a pleasure to create a card thanking someone for all their hard work.
