Retirement Card Number Two*

Today I thought I would share my second Retirement card that I created for Sherman. This one was done for everyone to sign. I added a bunch of pages to the card so that there was plenty of room for everyone to sign... or so I thought! I had to go back and add additional pages LOL  What I added was not enough. Here is the card:

This image is from the All About Dad Digital Stamp Set from Sassy Cheryl. I colored this one with Copic Markers and did a small amount of layering. I die cut the one edge with a My Favorite Things die. I added some gems and ribbon and tied the pages together with the same ribbon. I created the quote on the front and then added the Happy Retirement on the inside. I used as much scrap paper as I could for this one as well.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Trees: E41, E44, E47, E55, E57
  • Hammock: YG93, YG95, YG97
  • Shirt and Socks: B00, B02, B04, B06
  • Shorts: YR01, YR04, YR07
  • Tongue: R20, R22
  • Flowers: E35, E37; Y11, Y15; V12, V15
  • Grass: G12, G14
  • Hair: C3, C5
