Retirement of a Mentor
Though I haven't quite recovered from the wedding/honeymoon, I found myself in need of a retirement card. And, really, this couldn't come from my stash, as the recipient is a dear friend and mentor. She has taught me so much about the reading process through the years so I wanted to make a personalized card to attempt to celebrate her impact on so many educators.
This card is pretty much a case of this card found on Just For Fun's website. The file folder images and clips are from Just For Fun. I stamped the folders using Marvy Charcoal gray dye onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and sponged with SeaShell Sandal dye and Adirondack Latte dye. I cut these images out and arranged them onto a patterned paper panel. The clips were stamped with Marvy black dye and cut and arranged onto the folders appear as though are holding the following notes: Relax (computer generated), Ohio State logo (cut from a notepad) and an excerpt from an old agenda. With a black pen, I wrote some memorable presentations from my mentor. Black and red panels of cardstock were used to complete this card, along with a ribbon treatment and white gel pen was used for the dots on the red panel.
