Retirement Card


Over the weekend I made some retirement cards for my parents to give to teachers at the school where they used to work.  Today I'm sharing one of the cards I made using my Bookatrix board.  I've used white pearl card and gold mirror board with a layer of vellum on the top page.  The butterfly was cut using a Memory Box die and I also used some gold metallic nail heads in the four corners and some white ribbon down the middle of the 'book'.

Here's a picture of the box I made to go with the card:


For this I used my smaller Memory Box butterfly die.

I'd like to enter my project in the following challenges:

Crafty Ribbons Challenge - 'anything goes'
Totally PaperCrafts - 'all of a flutter'
The Sisterhood of Crafters - 'black, white and one accent colour' (gold)
Party Time Tuesdays - 'wing it'
A Creative Romance Challenge - 'ribbon or twine'
Card Makin' Mamas - 'monochromatic'
