The front is a combination of my own cut-files & a couple from Bird's Card - bet you can guess the sentiment card frame is one of mine though. LOL. Where would I be without my Cameo???
Did I say, "...as much happening on the inside?" .....Well, I suppose you could say that it even more complex on the inside & of course a compendium of cut-files here too - but this time all my own. I wanted to convey that the journey into retirement was one that was being taken together & that the future, with more time together, could strengthen the bond the couple already share. The main image is probably recognisably one from Mo Manning & I coloured the couple gazing into the distance using Promarkers. There is a second image as you will have noticed, this time on the tag tucked away in the pocket. Coloured to co-ordinate with the Mo Manning image, this echo of the floral bouquet is from A&T Digital. The sentiment, like the one on the front, I created on the PC along with one on the reverse of the tag (not shown).
Being such a momentous occasion in someone's life I created a box to pop the card in & I managed to keep this uncomplicated & devoid of too much 'clutter' which would just run the risk of being knocked off or damaged in the post.
|Relatively simple top to the box though there are a number of layers!|
I added my usual box liner full of hopefully meaningful sentiments with a paler version of the image of the couple.
