Happy Boss' Day

Yesterday was Boss' Day.  It was also a very busy day for me at home and work, so I didn't get a chance to post this yet.   My boss is in the middle of building his home, so our team went with that theme for his gift too.

For the color choices, I was inspired by this week's Dynamic Duos challenge and used Soft Sued and Pool Party.

Showing off the layers of texture. There's a second die cut in soft suede under the white window die cut for layering and texture.  I used pop dots (SU Dimensionals on the window and again on the brick wall layer. 

The inside of the card has a pocket for a gift card.  I used a computer generated greeting and stamped another image of the chandelier on top of it.  

For this week's Dynamic Duos challenge.

Stamps: Tim Holtz (French Connection), Stampin' Up (Just Believe)
Ink: Stampin' Up
Coloring: Copic Markers
Cardstock: Stampin' Up
Tools: Tim Holz embossing plate, Poppy Stamps window die, PC & printer for inside sentiment. SU punches for outside greeting


  1. This is a LOVELY card. I like the textures and dimension you put into layout and what a fun idea to overstamp the chandelier on the gift card pocket. TFS!

  2. All the little details make this extra special! So glad to see you at Dynamic Duos!

  3. Oh, this is so fun!! I love that chandelier peeking through the window! :) What a fabulous Boss' Day idea! Thanks for joining us at Dynamic Duos!

  4. Love the attention to details on this card! Thank you for joining us at Dynamic Duos!

  5. Your card is so gorgeous & creative! The window against the embossed background is beautiful! Thanks for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week!! :)

  6. You have one lucky boss! I love everything about this card. This is the first time I've seen someone use the window to look in to the house. So original. I've never seen a brick embossing folder either. I'm going to have to look for one for myself. It would be perfect for housewarming and masculine cards.

  7. very nice form,
    do you really have a formal boss day? :-)

    1. Yes. We actually do have a boss' day in the us.
