On Your Retirement


Today’s card has been made using the new Paper Boutique paper collection from Creative Crafting World called ‘For Him’.

Including a die from the new ‘Occasion’ die collection.

To make this card you will need :

8″ by 8″ White Card
The Paper Boutique ‘For Him’ Topper and Paper Collection
The Paper Boutique ‘For Him’ Coloured Card Collection
The Paper Boutique ‘Occasion and Celebration’ Dies ‘On Your Retirement’
A4 White Card
A4 Black Card
Wet Glue / Double Sided Tape
Foam Pads


Choose a square topper, one coloured card and four patterned papers.

Using black card cut a square measuring 20 cms by 20 cms and a square from the coloured card measuring 19.5 cms by 19.5 cms.
Matt and layer these together and attach to the card base.

Then cut a square measuring 17 cms by 17 cms from black card and a square from white card measuring 16.5 cms by 16.5 cms.
Matt and layer these together and attach to the card base leaving a border around the outside.

Next from the black card cut four pieces measuring 3.5 cms by 13.5 cms.
Then cut a piece from each of the patterned papers measuring 3 cms by 13 cms.
Matt and layer these together.

Using foam pads arrange these layers onto the white layer on the base card making sure they are on the edge as this will leave a small gap between them.

Then using foam pads attach the square topper to the centre.

To finish off add a sentiment. Cut the matt layer out in black card and the wording out in coloured card.

You use any sentiment that suits the occasion.
