One of our dearest and longest friends had a combination 60th birthday and retirement party. They said "No gifts please. Just the presence of your company" in their invitation, but I at least wanted to give a card. The question is, when an event is two separate things at once, how do you create a card? Most cards are either birthday exclusive or retirement exclusive. Now, I could have given two separate cards, but I decided to create one card celebrating both milestones.
I started by searching my craft room for appropriate stamps. Nothing. So then I turned to the Internet and googled "Free Happy Retirement Images to color" and I found this one. I thought it was perfect for the occasion because I knew the recipient hopes to be a "Snow Bird" plus I saw the sun in the image the perfect spot to stamp "Happy Birthday".
To make the card, I printed the image onto card stock sizing it down to fit an A2 sized card. I then colored the image in with Copic Markers and stamped "Happy 60th Birthday &" on the sun.
Then I just glued the image onto a card base. Easy Peasy and perfect for the occasion.
Have A Great Day! Amy
