Computer easel card

Hope you ALL had a lovely Christmas.

One of our IT men was leaving, he is the main man for our 'puter system, so don't know what we will do without him.  I thought a card would perhaps show him we did care about him leaving, so this is what I made.

I downloaded a clear 'puter screen keyboard and mouse, I then looked for some computer language to put on the screen adding "new job". I made an easel card, put the empty screen inside and made a fault message on the screen, added a verse 3D'd the keyboard and mouse.  The mouse meant the card 8 x 8 was then too big for the envelope aarrgghh! so I made an envelope to match the background paper, that took longer than the card, as I had to get the measurements right. I'm glad to say it was well received.
