Happy Retirement Chuck

One of my husband’s co-workers is retiring this week after 38 years.  I’m sure my husband will miss him – they have worked a lot of shifts together in the past 13 years and his wife’s name is Betty too.  We wish them much happiness as they start their retirement together.

Chuck’s card was inspired by a card made by trinh.  I just changed up the colour scheme and stamp.  It was a lot of fun and loved pulling out my eyelet stash that were tucked away in a bottom drawer.  My photography skills are not that great – as the colour of the card should be light gray with dark blue.

Card Size:  7-1/4 x 4-3/4
Stamps:  In The Spotlight & Congrats from Stampin’ Up
Paper:  Neutrals from DCWV, White from Stampin’ Up
Ink:  Faded Jeans Distress Ink; Versafine Black Onyx
Other:  Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder; Dull Silver Eyelets – 1/2″ & 1/8″


Gotta Have Heart!

W-2008-002When I look at this card – the words Gotta Have Heart came to mind.  This card is very similar to the previous one I posted – just changed it to a square card – gives it a little different look.  This is a great card for weddings, anniversaries or bridal showers – I love the D’Vine Swirl folder – it gives such a softness to the card.  This was the first time I used the Hearts dies and folders – thought it was a nice touch to emboss the heart.  The Flowers and rhinestone gems were added to give it a little sparkle.  When I make this card again, I think I will change the sentiment style to something a little bolder.
