Retirement card...

I was looking through my photo files from 2017 and realized there were a few cards that I had not posted on my blog. This was one of them.

This was a simple card for my BIL. I found an image of scrabble tiles on line and simply printed them out on cardstock. Then I fussy cut them and popped them up on my card next to a computer-generated list of retirement activities.

Here you can see that they are, indeed, popped up a bit, adding a little dimension.

On the inside I used some of the same papers and mats that I had used on the front. The sentiment is my own and was also computer-generated.

This is a very simple card, but I think that's usually best when it's for a male.

I've finally gotten my Christmas decorations all put away, and I'm now working on cards for the next holiday--Valentine's Day!

Sometimes I wonder what I did with all my time before I started making cards for every occasion and for all my family members (and I have a big family). Of course, I had a fulltime job then.

I definitely prefer being retired and spending much of my time on paper crafts.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

That is a great card. Thanks for the inspiration. I am needing a retirement card. May just have to case this in feminine papers.

Oh how cool - I thought they were real scrabble tile until you said you printed them out. Love the sentiment inside. There are so few "retirement" stamps out there. Kind of on your own.

Very original! I love it! Your home made scrabble tiles look fab, I thought they were the real thing :)
