Card Rescue

A few weeks ago, a colleague of mine was leaving and someone brought in a "card" for everyone to sign. That's it in the picture above. It was just coloured cardboard folded in half (and not cut straight)! I couldn't cope with that, so I took it home for a card rescue and this is what I came up with.

The card front is a little bigger than A4. The base card was almost a perfect match for Purely Pomegranate, so I used that with Regal Rose. I used the So Swirly wheel and the Priceless stamp set. The silver cord is retired stock. On the inside, I randomly stamped the butterfly image in Versamark ink and I stamped the words "We will miss you" (using Big Deal Alphabet) in Purely Pomegranate onto Confetti White cardstock and then cut them out and glued them in.

Now, doesn't that look much better!?
