Personalised Retirement Card

An A4 card. I  have used the Tattered Lace Essential book die set to make this card. This recipient likes sewing so I used my Xcut haberdashery set of dies to cut the sewing items. I have used self adhesive tape measure embellishment, ribbon & buttons from my stash. I have die cut flowers in felt and decorated them with buttons. I have printed the personalised sentiment and die cut it with a scalloped oval die. I completed the card with flat backed pearls
