As promised earlier in the week on my Facebook Page, here is a custom retirement card I did for a client. It's a large card - 8" x 11"! Those can be tricky to work with, but if you split them up into sections, you can create anything!
Above is a close up of some of the elements I included that were interests of the recipient.
For this card, I split it into quarters, opting to create sections measuring 11" x 2". When you work the card in this manner, it's easier to create such a large card. I pulled my colour scheme from the DSP that I used (as the recipient loves to travel) and included those colours - Basic Grey, Real Red, So Saffron & Pool Party - on all my panels so that it all worked together.
On the inside, I stamped some butterflies up one side using Papillion Potpourri in the same four colours from the front. I used the same image for all colours, except the Basic Grey ones. For those, I stamped a smaller butterfly, which I punched out using the Bitty Butterfly Punch.
