Recently I have been asked to make several retirement cards. The brief for this latest one that it had to have ‘tartan’ & that the recipient was ‘outdoorsy’.I came across this quote a couple of years ago & it really appealled to me, so I felt I had to include it. I recently ordered the Tim Holtz ‘honeycomb frameworks’ die & couldn’t wait to use it. Another old favourite is the Quickutz ‘hiking boot’ die. This always looks good when cut out of leather-look paper. The addition of tiny eyelets & laces makes it look very realistic. The tiny eyelets are a bit fiddly to set, but make all the difference. The letters for the quote are all cut individually. I have used some of the negatives to add interest. To finish off I added the recipient’s name at the bottom.
