My brother came home a day or so ago with the news that my favourite project manager is leaving tomorrow. He’s one of the rare creatures who can run a project without masses of meetings – and those that he does hold usually finish early. So I wanted to make a card to wish him well. I’d just received the Sorry For Everything set and it seemed perfect for making a card for Pat.

Liz Bailey Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - Sorry for Everything - Layering Leaves Dynamic TIEF - Layering Ovals Framelits Dies

I really liked the card I made recently with lemon lime twist and black and decided to go with that color way again. First I heat embossed the Sorry in black but I inked up the stamp in versamark and then basic black so that I have a good background of black before sprinkling on the embossing powder. I then cut it out with the largest oval from the layering ovals framelits dies. I then discovered that the largest scalloped die in this set is slightly smaller than the oval so that scuppered the plan for a little border. Instead, I decided to bring in some black with some of the Pick a Pattern washi tape. First I used the layering leaves dynamic TIEF on a piece of lemon lime twist which I cut half an inch smaller than the card base (don’t forget to spritz it with water first) and then matted it with a piece of basic black cut 1/8 inch larger. I put this onto a lemon lime twist card base and popped up the sentiment with loads of dimensionals. Inside the card I put another sentiment from the Sorry For Everything set – “to see you go”. I think this is going to be a really useful set.
