The Open Sea Retirement
For those of you with kids on March Break, I hope you're having a wonderful week off! I am still totally enjoying being at my parents house and they have been amazing and totally spoiling the boys and I. I couldn't be happier! My oldest has announced that he's going to stay here for the entire summer! We'll see about that.
I was asked by a friend to make retirement cards for two crown attorney's who are retiring next month.
These cards needs to be signed by A LOT of people so they need to be large.
This card isn't you're average card size. This one is actually 8.5"X11". Cards this big are a little tough to do!
The first card is for someone who loves sailing...immediately I thought of The Open Sea and the Nautical Expedition DSP! I started designing this card using Sleepy in Seattle's idea and then expanding!
I will hopefully get the other card done this weekend and post it for you! The next card is a bit more challenging so I'm a little nervous!
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Early Espresso, Whisper White
DSP: Nautical Expedition
Stamps: The Open Sea
Ink: Soft Suede, Early Espresso
