Especially for you card

I created this card for my bosses boss, Walt. He is actually the manager who hired me 10+ years ago. I worked for him for probably 4 years or so until I moved to the software group. He has moved up and I have moved to the Avionics Engineering group, which is happens to fall under Walt. We are having a picnic for our boss and decided to invite Walt also, so I made this card today.

I printed the paper on the Cricut Imagine. The pattern is on the Audrey (which also happens to be a lovely name and a lovely blogger!) cart. The file folder card can be found on Fabulous Finds cart (I used the blackout feature). After cutting the card x 2, I switched over to my Sihouette.

I found the frame in my library. I created an inset, then made the line dotted and white. I repeated the process only making the offset larger than the original frame and again added the dotted white lines. This is sooo easy to do with the SIL and I think a great touch.

Lastly, I added some twine and inked the edges...hope he likes it. I am sure he will appreciate it...he's that kind of man.

Simple, but pretty I think.

Lovely card! I really like the green and brown combo and the shape of your card is great. What a special card for a guy who sounds very special! He must be pretty smart also, after all he hired you!
