MALE RETIREMENT CARD AND BOX


Hi and welcome to all my very talented and craft loving friends.

I do hope everyone had a nice weekend.

I was asked to make a retirement card for a colleague at my Daughter's works recently.
It was a request that needed to be made quickly so good old Hunkydory images to the rescue.
The person in question has worked for my Daughter's company for 38 years and what dedication to work there for so long, and help lots of clients that have learning difficulties.






This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.
The Hunkydory card stock and images were a Hunkydory free gift from their site back last year I think, you just pay £2.99 for the postage. 
I included ten 5"x5" cards in the pockets for everyone to sign and give their own greetings.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

This is a beautiful card and box and the idea of popping the smaller cards inside for people to sign is a really good one.

Your cards are always so thoughtful. There is so much attention to details like the spine of this card. It is just beautiful and the box is also beautiful. Each card is a gift by itself. He will sure love this. Thirty eight years is a long time!

What an amazing retirement card Jenny! I love the sailing theme on the outside of the card. 38 years, that is quite the accomplishment! Even more so since this person helped a lot of clients that had learning disabilities. How sweet of you to place individual cards inside of the big card for people to sign. Love that idea! The box is equally beautiful too. You sure do make amazing cards Jenny! Hugs, Brenda

This is a fantastic make Jenny and I love how you include the little cards so that personal messages can be written and kept within the album. One of the Partners at work has just retired from the Practice but is going to continue to locum for us for a while yet so I should have a go at making one of these for when he actually leaves us for the last time xx
