Retirement Card

Hi, Today I'd like to share with you a card designed for Scrappy-Go-Lucky."Summer Vacation" was released a few months ago, but as we're coming into the warmer weather, I thought it'd be good to go back and have a look. As many retirees now travel the world, the different images come together to make a nice retirement card.

Unless you have Design Studio with the Hide Contour Feature, and as there is no shadow feature on this cartridge, it is impossible to cut the suitcase without the straps and corner cuts. I really wanted this as a feature on the card, so I cut it out of the paper as below. (It is cut at 2").

I then lined up the area on the mat, and using the Cri-Kits gel pens, drew the message on the dark blue layer of the card. The retirement message is 1" and has been put together using the lovely "Gypsy Font". (Pack your bags is 1 1/4", and is from "Summer Vacation"). Both fit in the same size suitcase.

I inked around the edges, added a little more detail, some brads, and put it together...

These modes of transport were all cut between 1/2" and 1", and all have a touch of silver on them.

They are adhered to vanilla cardstock with a little inking.

The bus and ship are on separate pieces of card and attached using foam dots for dimension.

A few more brads with some ribbon to finish. Hope you like it.

Great news - Scrappy-Go-Lucky are now offering free shipping in Australia, and have some great specials on their Cricut Expression machines - so make sure you check it out.

Luv, Tereesa.
