Today’s projects is a Retirement card using the Special Moments and Best Delivery stamp sets. Moving On To Retirement is a good thing!
Making it to Retirement is a wonderful event. But cards are a bit difficult for this, and especially when it is a man! However, as soon as I saw the big moving truck, I knew it would make a perfect retirement card. Guys like motor vehicles and it has that large side for the announcement. So Best Delivery stamp set to the rescue!
For the sentiment, I turned to the Special Moments stamp set from Sale-A-Bration. That set has amazing sentiments for so many occasions. And to add some excitement to a large truck, I used the balloons from Best Delivery set, in two colors, blowing out the back. I can envision using this truck for other announcements now. On the inside, I stamped the Happy Retirement sentiment from Senior Years stamp set.
Since the truck is rather large, I went with a couple of cardstock layers instead of DSP. Not a lot of the layers are actually seen. So Bumblebee and Misty Moonlight were my colors of choice. And that is definitely a change for me since I tend to use multiple pieces of DSP on a card! For the truck to be lighter and allow the outlines to show, I went with Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends for the cab and boarder of the cargo part.
I hope you will see this truck in a new light now and consider all of the “Announcements” that it can be used for.
