Saying Goodbye


I play Bunco once a month with a group of 12 women, and we talk and laugh and have a great time. One of our members is moving away (not far, but we won't see her every month). I made this card we could all sign and wish her well.

It’s a very simple design – no fancy cuts or color, just sincere expressions to let her know she’ll always have a place in our hearts.

Saying Goodbye


Note: Finished card size is 5" x 7"


Basic Black (SU!) 7" x 10", scored at 5"; and
4 1/4" x 6 1/4", and

Bordering Blue (SU!)


Inspired by Nature (SU!)
Sentiment (Stamps Happen)


ATG 714
Rotary Trimmer



Ink the flower silhouette stamp with blue ink and stamp on the lower 2/3 of the patterned paper panel.

Stamp the first line of the sentiment in blue on the small white strip, and the last 2 lines of the sentiment in blue on one of the large white panels.


This is a very simple card to make! CARD FRONT: Alternate the layers on the Saying Goodbye Insidefront of the card: mount a blue panel, followed by black, then blue, then patterned paper. Adhere the sentiment strip to a black strip, and mount it centered above the flower image.

Inside, Layer a blue panel, followed by black, followed by the white panel with the sentiment. For my card, we had 11 signatures to collect, so I added another set of blue/black/white on the left side of the inside card.



Thanks for stopping by!
