Farewell From Group Card

A co-worker is moving on and will be leaving our group so it’s time to make a farewell card. These card are always so hard for me. What should it say? Good luck? We will miss you?  Goodbye?

For this one I went with the goodbye idea but classed it up a nudge with a “Farewell”.

I had seen a card in a store with the idea of a group of people with a speech bubble saying goodbye and I liked it but I didn’t want to make a bunch of people on the card so I went with smiley faces with the smile part removed. I didn’t want to make it seem like we were happy to see him go!

When making this up in Cricut Design Space, I had a mental picture of having all these smiley guys and cut them out to the width of the card so it all would come out perfectly. I could not figure out how to do this without making it look weird. Welding just made it a huge smiley head mass and layering caused all their eyes to have yellow bits in them from the smiley behind it.

I ended up giving up on cutting it to shape inside of Design Space and decided before I had it all sorted out, I could have had it cut out and gave it a chop with my scissors. So that’s what I did.

In the end, I’m pleased I left them as little individual heads and it didn’t take that long to assemble. I think it ended up giving the card a nice layered dimension that I wasn’t planning on but looks nice.
