National Boss Day

(click image to enlarge)

National Boss Day (NBD) is coming up on the 17th. I created this card for my awesome boss. He is a family man, who raised his daughter by himself. He always understands when I need to take a day off or even a few hours to go to the school for a program. Our group really appreciates him so every year we give him a card, a small gift and either take him out to lunch or have a picnic across the street from our building. We have a coworker who loves to grill, so he grills chicken or steak and we bring all the extras. Yesterday, my boss said it was time for another picnic, so I am going to see if our coworker will cook for us on NBD.

I made this card using my Silhouette (SIL). The pattern paper is a pattern I purchased from SIL. I used it twice on this card, once on white paper and then again on ivory paper. The typewriter is a print and cut file I bought from SIL. I typed the text on the front of the card using the SIL software. It says, "National Boss Day 2011 Enjoy". Twine was added to the top to add some color and texture. On the inside of the card, I used a 1 3/4" circle punch then stamped "It's your day". I inked all the edges. On the back, I added the ribbon my husband bought for me to add to my cards {he ALWAYS checks to see if I used it ;-)}

Thanks for visiting my blog.
