A Gold Soiree Retirement Celebration Card from Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Sarah Poulton

Good morning crafters.

I had a lovely festive make to share with you this morning but my computer decided to delete the whole post just as I was about to publish it. So I decided to give you something a little different (and not Christmas-y at all) this morning and I'll rewrite the festive post for one of my posts next week.

I think I mentioned that my lovely Chiropractor has recently retired. Off on a retirement adventure in her campervan. I wanted to make her a card to accompany her gift I'd bought. I've never made a retirement card before so I just picked some papers and started creating.

I used the Gold Soiree Speciality Papers to create my little banners. I glued a Itty Bitty Accents star punched from Champagne Glimmer Paper to the longest banner.

I stamped the Happy Retirement from Teeny Tiny Sentiments (a stamp set with a sentiment for nearly every occasion!) and punched with the Word Window Punch and then mounted on to a Brushed Gold Modern Label Punch shape.

To finish I tied Linen Thread around the card and then glued Subtles Candy Dots to give a 'sprinkled' effect.

Don't forget to check out the Year End Closeout bargains on the Clearance Rack (and while you are there have a quick peek at this week's Weekly Deals too). Some fantastic bargains to be had.
