Happy Retirement

Hi! It's Janja here with you today.
All the dies from gardening release are great for making a wide variety of cards for men. My card is for retirement.

- CottageCutz dies: Gardening Tools, Lawn mower, Gardening Hat & Gloves, Shelf w/ Plants
- blank card: 4 1/4 "x 5 1/2" (10,8 x 14 cm), folded
- patterned paper: 3 1/2 "x 4 3/4" (9 x 12 cm)
- different colors of cardstock
- embossing folder – lumber
- different colors of ink pads
- glue, double-sided adhesive tape, self-adhesive foam pads

Cut out garden tools, a lawn mower, a shelf and a garden hat from colored cardstock. Shade all the pieces with colored ink pads.
I shortened the garden hat with scissors.

Trim the selected patterned paper to the size of the card base. Also cut out two rectangles. Stamp sentiment on a white strip.

For greater effect, I embossed wood-patterned paper with a 3D folder and shaded the edges with ink.

Paste the background to the front of the card with double-sided adhesive tape. Attach the other elements with self-adhesive pads and glue.

Thank you for stopping by.
