  • Need idea's for a Leaving card

    Hi all

    I have been "commissioned" to make one of my colleagues leaving card, I need to make it this weekend as she is leaving next week.

    She is 21 and leaving to go to her final year at University. I am really stuck for ideas!! She is a design student so into patterns, textures etc.... can anyone offer any inspiration?? PLEASE

    What about large letters saying she will be missed, good luck,etc and do each letter in a different texture, - wool, fabric scraps, paint, gems,etc??? Put it all on a nice bright background to make it funky and modern. Hope this helps! If I think of anything else I will let you know. Sue xx

      How about a 'Madriaan' style card (blocks of primary colours outlined in black) and layer the blocks using different pieces of card to give it dimension, or pyromage them, you could have the 3/4/5/6 layers high then. Or how about a large card that looks like a 'mood' board, with different bits and pieces, odds and ends, beads, fibres etc, in her favourite colour. I'm sure you'll create something gorgeous

        Hi

        Thanks for your little bits of inspiration ! I went with the mood board and it turned out really well, even my fussy boss loved it!

        By the way, Nettie what is pyromage? I have done a search and couldn't come up with anything

          Not sure if I spelt it right, could be pyramage as in pyramid. It's basically layering, you get one image and copy it by however many layers you want to make, you then cut each layer slightly smaller than the last so that when you layer them up (with 3d foam) they look like a step pyramid and when you look at it it still looks like the complete image. You can also do it the other way round, by cutting an ever increasing aperture out of each layer, so that each one looks like a picture frame, escept for the first base picture, so that you layer them up and look down into the picture instead. I've never actually done it, but the end results that I've seen look really good.

          Did you manage to take a photo of your card? It'd be lovely to see it
