Forty-Five years ago today I started my first ever job! I remember quite clearly exactly what I wore, my Mum giving me a packed lunch and me catching the bus into the local town. The day flew by, I caught the bus home, Mum gave me a cup of tea and I promptly fell asleep in the chair – totally exhausted.
I look back at every job I have done since that day and the opportunities I was given and those I earned thru hard work (it was not easy being a girl engineer in the 70’s and 80’s) – but I appreciated then, as now, the encouragement and kindness I was shown by a lot of people along the way – today’s card reflects that.
Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Thick Whisper White Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 4 7/8 x 3 5/8 Highland Heather Card
Layer 2: 4 3/4 x 3 1/2 Whisper White Card
Top and Bottom Panels : 3 1/2 x 1 1/4 Whisper White Card
Ink Colors: Highland Heather, Powder Pink and Gorgeous Grape
The Abstract Impressions stamp set was used to create the panels at the top and bottom, I stamped a 1/4 sheet of Whisper White Card then trimmed it down before attaching it to layer 2. This was then attached to Layer 1 with some Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and Stampin Dimensionals to attach to the card base.
Gorgeous Grape 1/4 mini stripped ribbon from my recent ribbon share and some Glitter Enamel Dots and we are done.
