What I have for you today is a gift set that I created especially for my new boss. She drove all the way down from the Twin Cities to specifically train me for two days and then went back to the corporate offices the next week. I wanted to find a way to show her my great appreciation for giving me this unbelievable opportunity so I created this...
I know nothing extraordinary...but it is my most favorite combo of all gift sets. What better way to say "Thank You"! All the elements used in this geft set is from Elegant WordArt by Bethany. She creates the most wonderful wordart that is not only great to use for digi scrapping but for creating hybrid projects as well just like this one.
The card uses Calendar Wrap Around and sentiment from the Thank You wordart packs. The Calendar Wrap Around wordart pack also includes 2 date markers you can use to specify a certain date which I forgot to do here. I printed the calendar on kraft cardstock and used my scallop rectangles to finish off the frame using brown cardstock. The card is finished it off with a purple wide grossgrain ribbon and used my nested butterflies nesties to finish off the card. I cut out the bigger butterfly using a transparency sheet (that you can buy from an office supply store) and the smaller butterfly is paper pieced with patterned paper (popped up with a dimensional) and embellished with a button with crochet thread tied underneath.
I created a matching composition notebook that uses digital wordart from the Walks wordart pack. I added the same butterfly embellie to the sentiment.
Last, but not least, I couldn't resist making a matching bookmark which also uses a sentiment from again the Walks wordart pack. I only used the smaller paper pieced butterfly for an embellie on the bookmark so it wouldn't crowd the wordart sentiment.
