I am a human resources director by trade and having taken professional qualifications a life time ago, I worked full-time in HR for nearly 25 years before establishing my own consultancy. For the last 4 years I have provided services to, amongst others, one particularly special client and I now consider the team I support there to be friends. I made this card for the CEO - who has kept me soooooo busy this week. I saw the sentiment on someone else's card - forgive me, (I can't remember where) several weeks ago and it struck me as just the sort of comment NOT to make in an employment reference response as an alternative to "works well with others". It also struck me as the perfect sentiment to use for the CEO of my special client, who does like a drink or three.
I thought I would create a pretend resumé for him and use the sentiment which I computer generated together with some Stampin Up images of drinks, coloured with copics and then glazed.
Now I have to confess that I have used Photoshop to alter the photo of my card before publishing here. The original card had the MD's name at the top and the names of both his current company and his previous company in the content but as he is my most important client, I have deleted them for the purposes of this post. The DP is Basic Grey "Wander". I liked the masculine feel of it. I wrote an authentic personal profile for the CEO and some employment history which is pretty accurate of course (I am an HR specialist afterall) and popped the word processed version into Photoshop before printing it. This made it a bit blurry which is what I wanted. A bit of tulle behind the images and voila!
I am taking liberties with the theme a little bit here because whereas my Basic Grey paper and tulle is from old stash. The Stampin Up stamps are both old and new. I've not used them before so they are new but I've had them for a year! I really like how my card turned out and I must use them more often.
I am also entering it into
Kaboodle Doodles - for their "Food and/or Drink" theme; and
My Mum's Craft Shop - who want to see "one for the boys".
Before I go, I must say a big thank you to Sweet Stamping for asking me to be their Guest Designer this month. It has been such fun to work with the lovely ladies over there.
