Hi Stampers. I don’t know about you, but I have reached that age where my friends are old enough to be retiring. So, I was happy to see Stampin’ Up! come out with a stamp set that said “Happy Retirement”. The cartoon people in the set are too cute for words.

Today’s Senior Year retirement card has a Highland Heather card base, followed by a layer of the Hydrangea Hill DSP – did you pick up some more of that before it’s gone? It’s gorgeous!!

For the focal point, I stamped the old lady (from the Senior Years stamp set) in Memento Black ink and colored her with the Stampin’ Blends. She was then die cut with the Layering Circles Dies and a slightly larger scalloped circle was die cut from Highland Heather CS using the same dies. The sentiment was stamped onto Basic White CS in Highland Heather ink and punched out with the small side of the Double Ovals Punch.  Highland Heather CS was used to cut out the larger oval, from the same punch. These items were layered together and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Inside the card is a layer of Basic White CS with a strip of that gorgeous DSP on the left side.  The funny sentiments, from the Senior Years stamp set, is stamped in the center in Highland Heather ink. I can’t wait to send it to someone.  They will LOVE it!
