Leavers Cards for Colleagues

It's the time of year when cards are required for colleagues that are moving on to pastures new.  This year I have had quite a few cards to make.  I decided to use the same design for two colleagues, but worked in two colour ways.

I have to work on 8" x 8" base cards to allow space for everyone to write.  I used one of my new Claritystamp Fresh Cut dies (Wild Privet) to cut an aperture out of black card, then added an outer edge using one of the Tonic Studio square nesting dies.
This was matted onto a piece of patterned paper (14.2cm x 14.2cm) then onto another piece of black card (15.2cm x 15.2cm).
I used the Claritystamp Letterbox Alphabet and Onyx Black Versafine ink to stamp out the sentiment (I love a pun) onto another piece of the same patterned paper.  This was then die cut using the open ended Pierced Flag die (Sue Wilson/Creative Expressions).  Once added onto black card, the card was trimmed as a mat.
The two toppers were then added to an 8" x 8" pre made white card blank.
