Happy Retirement Adirondack Chair and Follow Your Art

Hello Paper Crafting Friends ~ welcome back to my corner of the world.

It is so lovely to hear that someone is retiring – how wonderful to be able to get to that stage in your life when your time is your own to do with what you want – when you want to do it! So when a dear friend’s husband announced he was retiring in August it was the perfect occasion to celebrate with a card for him.

Today’s card has a tiny bit of stamping using the Well Said stamp set then some die cutting with the coordinating Well Written Dies.

Card base:  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Coastal Cabana Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4

Layer 1:  5 1/4 x 4 Bermuda Bay Card

Layer 2: 5 x 3 3/4 Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper

Scraps of Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede

Ink Color: Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede

I cut 2 of the Adirondack Chairs using the Seasonal Layers Dies and Soft Suede Card.  I trimmed the chair back off one of them and turned it upside down to create the little table then sponged both pieces with Soft Suede Ink and a Stampin Sponge. Then attached with a couple of carefully placed mini Stampin Dimensionals so they won’t show

The ‘Happy’ is cut from the Well Written Dies, I use a toothpick to put tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the back before attaching it to the card.
