Retirement Card - for a dog lover

A friend at work asked me to make a custom card for a coworker who was retiring, and LOVED shitzus. So, I figured I would try to make a punch art shitzu dog for the card! She also loves green, blue and pink, so this is the card I came up with! It is an easel card, which means she can put it on a shelf open and it sits like you see in the photo below. I like doing custom cards as easel cards, as they become a nice keepsake for the receiver.


I thought I'd try the new Labels Collection framelits by SU!, and I am loving them! They are an excellent way to add a beautiful frame to a card easily! The collection comes with 6 wafer-thin dies that cut up to a 5-7/16" wide label - which would be great as a unique card shape! 



 Here is a close-up of the front of the card with the punch art shitzu, flowers, ribbon and lower easel section:
 And the inside:

Card Making Class May 11 & 12

Next Friday and Saturday I will be holding another card making class called a Card Buffet. There will be baby, birthday, thank you, friendship, sympathy, wedding and of course Mother's Day card options!


At this workshop, you get to decide which cards you make and how many of each you would like to make within a 3 hour time frame!!

Choose from 10 different card designs on the “menu”. Card stock and DSP will be precut and ready for you, including all embellishments and instructions, so all you have to do is stamp and assemble!!

Dates & Times:

May 11 & 12, 2012

· Friday, May 11 - 6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

· Saturday, May 12 - 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

· Saturday, May 12 - 5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.


There will be a limit of 6 spots per session; availability is on a first come, first served basis, so send in your RSVP soon, invite a friend, and make it a fun afternoon or evening out!!

Come and go as you please during the designated time period (for the session that you registered to attend). The workshop will not begin before the published start time. If you need to come late or leave early, that's fine.

Cost:

Minimum of $20.00 cash includes 8 cards.

If you make more than 8 cards in the 3 hour time frame, each additional card you make over 8 is only $2.00 per card!

You may finish your cards here or do the stamping, punching, etc. here, and take the pieces home to assemble.

I will also give $5 off a $25 catalogue order when you place an order at the workshop – that’s a 20% discount!

Bring:

Please bring is your own adhesive. I will provide tools and "special" adhesives (sticky strip, glue, dimensionals, etc.) as required for cards completed here.
