time to say thank you
Each day, I find a new reason to be thankful for the volunteers of the organization that I administer. The past two weeks were filled with constant work on a huge grant proposal. I would never have made it without two special members of our Board who created budgets and cut through red tape so I could concentrate on writing the proposal. I was thinking about them when I designed this card.
The card has two recycled elements: the green and khaki mats are pieces of shopping bags from Eddie Bauer and Nordstrom. I cut the bags up and ran pieces through a crimper to get the texture I wanted. The gold mat is from Wausau and the pale yellow mat is from DCWV. The result is a different color palette for me, but I really like it.
I created the captioned panel as my take on subway art and printed it on my Epson 1400 printer. I used tiny foam squares to pop the panel off the main card and add more depth to the design.
OTHER SUPPLIES: Scor-Tape, Staples 110lb cream card stock
TOOLS: paper cutter
The best part about designing cards is the ability to make people feel appreciated in such a personal way. So there, Hallmark.
