40 years in Men's Pants....congratulations card using cricut lacy labels

OK--I new that headline would get your attention!!! Today we will celebrate the 40th year our departments Executive Assistant's has been with our company.  It is rare to find someone that has been with a company that long.  Ms. Edna has done everything from purchasing to customer service to well--just about everything; And she does it with a smile.  She has an amazing history with the company and still has a passion for the business--so here is the card I made

I used lacy labels, some ink, clear embossing powder, glitter, and my xyron sticker maker (I love that thing).
I finished out the inside after adding a second inside card so everyone can sign it.  I added strips of  SEI papers that were used on the outside to tie it together.  I really love the envelope!
I used some clear embossing powder and a clear SEI stamp to add some extra pop to the envelope.  After using the heat embossing tool I took my cat eye chalk ink and inked over the embossing, after blotting the extra ink of this is the result--I really like how it came out--
Hope you have a great Monday!
