Retirement Notes

 

Card front

My (older) sister retires a couple of years early today. Jealous – me? How did you guess?! Anyway, I had an idea a while back for a card similar to this so I based it on the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. The text for the main image was created in Word, then embossed using a Darice embossing folder – it took numerous attempts to get the text to line up properly! Then the top was die cut with a Clearly Besotted die.

The background was the result of more playing with wax paper & embossing folders, inked with Distress Inks. The mini clip was from Tesco, and the greeting is by Crafter’s Companion. Now the only problem is how to fit it in an envelope!
