Today - Retirement Card

Hello everyone!  Today, I have a card to share with you that I made for one of my husband's coworkers who recently retired.


I used milk chocolate cardstock for the base of the card and then I added a black mat with distressed edges.  I took a 5x7 piece of the milk chocolate and embossed it with the E3D-017 Oval Accent M-bossabilities Folder.  Then I rubbed Imagine Crafts/Tuskineko Versa Mark Ink around the outer edges and applied Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel and heat set it with a heat tool.  I love using this embossing enamel--it has a great texture and gives projects that aged and distressed look.  I found the sentiment on the internet, typed it up and printed it.  Then I used S4-110 Classic Ovals LG to die cut the sentiment.  I used Ranger Distress Ink Antique Linen to ink the outer edges of the die cut.  I also die cut another shape using one of the die templates from the S5-216 A2 Tranquil Moments set.  You can see it peeking out behind the sentiment.  I popped the sentiment up using 3D Foam Squares and then I added some handmade enamel dots using Glossy Accents.  


Here is a close up of the sentiment.


To create the decorative bezel I used an image from The Paper Studio Vintage Bottle Cap Sticker Pack and die cut it using the GLD-005 Iron Cross Dies.  I placed the die cut inside the GLSB-005 Iron Cross Bezel and added a clear acrylic circle sticker to the center.  Then I used some brown jute to attach the bezel to the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi
