Cheers

This is a good-bye flip book that I did for a friend. Her boss (Property Manager) is leaving the company after many years, and as there are too many signatures from employees for a card, my friend had them write their thoughts on paper that could be included in this flip book. Such a nice idea.

I used Neenah 110lb card stock for the cover, buildings and sentiment so it will stand up to the handling. To start, I stencilled the Sunray with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink to get that look only Oxides can produce. 

For my buildings I used Frantic Stamper's Cityscape die and cut the rows so their positions would stagger. I coloured the middle row using my distress marker in the Cracked Pistachio Distress, adding a few layers to achieve more depth of colour.  I coloured the windows with my Zig Brush in a bright yellow.

To put the cover together, I attached the back row directly to the cover. For the middle row I added foam tape, and for the front row I added two layers of foam tape. Doing this created shadows from the other buildings ... much like what happens in large cities.

We decided we did not want the standard good-bye, so we opted to use this "Cheers" sentiment die, which I also sponged with the same colour, along with adding some Wink of Stella, which does not show in the picture. A few sequins completed the cover. I punched the holes to match the coil and put the flip book together, adding heavy card stock to the back. I so wanted to add "The End", but my friend said no. She's no fun ~ 😉
