Retirement Cards 011514

The place where I work is full of baby boomers and we have lots of retirements and I always have a hard time finding inspiration for this kind of cards. So, I thought it would be fitting to share a few cards I made.

This first card is the latest I made. It's a z fold card. I used the nesting frame 8 die from Life Crafts for the map. I made a banner from some scraps of white card stock stamped Happy and used stickers for retirement. I was so lucky the word fit, because I didn't measure it. :) 

This second card was another z fold card. On this one I used some stickers I picked up at Michaels from their dollar bin from National Geographic. I really liked them because they are sort of like foam, so I think they really add something fun to the card.

This last card is the standard card. I made it to sort of simulate a post card. Again using some of the stickers from National Geographic and the map. As you can tell the map played a big part on these cards. The best part was that I used an old map that was going to be tossed and repurposed it. 

I hope you get a little inspiration and some ideas for the next time you want to celebrate someone's retirement.
