I believe that creativity is a powerful skill that can be practiced and developed. I hope my blog inspires you to find your very own "creative lment". ~LM
Oh, how I long for the day when I can use ALL of my time and energy for creative endeavors…until then, I am destined to make MANY a retirement card lol! One thing I’ve noticed is that there are not a lot of “retirement” stamps sets out there. So, I was quite excited when PaperTrey Ink came out with this stamp set, Congrats All Ways. It provides a lot of versatility for celebrating various events and special moments, including retirement.
This is a card I recently made for one of my husband’s senior manager’s. I kept the layout clean and masculine. I hand stamped the blue damask background, then, heat embossed the large black “congrats”. I finished the card with some antiquing ink (for around the edges), a thin grosgrain ribbon in basic black, and a cream accent button. A very easy and quick layout to duplicate. Hope it’s sunny and warm where you are! ~LM
