Farewell Friends

I have a couple of friends who are moving this week - one back to Texas and one just a couple of hours away.  While these moves represent opportunities for my friends, I will still miss them.  I thought I would give them a farewell gift at the going away dinner

I started with the My Timeless Template Captured Card Case.  One thing I love about the templates is that you can download them right away (no waiting for a box from Mr. UPS!)  I bought this template specificially for this project, but know I will use it in the future (like to house little goodies for my nieces and nephews at Christmas!)
Here is a picture to get a better idea of size:
I also made charms / decorations out of polyshrink.  The key chain is the large scalloped circle Sizzix die  and the butterflies were made from the Beautiful Butterflies die - both from SU!

I did learn that while the polyshrink material is still warm, its flexible - so I gave a little upward curve to the butterfly wings. 

I also made a set of 6 matching cards for the inside

Thanks for stopping by!
