~Congrats and Best Wishes

I don't know about you all, but I have a really tough time with masculine cards. This is for a coworker who has retired from my company to move on to greener pastures (not true retirement) and will be signed by everyone in his former workgroup.

I made the card by welding two 5" images from Cricut Essentials and cutting it twice.  The base paper wasn't double sided, so I adhered these two back to back to form the card base.  I then cut 3 more at 4.5"; two in yellow (for the inside mats) and 1 in plaid (for the outside front).  Finally I cut one more at 4" in the yellow for the outside front.  All pieces were inked.  The Congrats phrase was cut from Twinkles Toes and sized to fit the 4" mat using CCR (yes I've used it a couple of times).   The inside phrase was cut from Cricut Alphabet (&) and Birthday Bash (Best Wishes).  I used hide contour to hide the heart in the postage stamp.  The finishing touch was a bit of twine tied around the fold of the card and I made a matching envelope from the same paper as the base of the card.  Thanks for stopping by!
