  • Copper Foil: 3 ½” x 3 ½”
  • Burlap Ribbon: 4 ¼”
  • Twine: 8”
  1. Fold the Crumb Cake cardstock in half to form the card base.
  2. Stamp the large and the smaller piece of white cardstock with the Birch stamp set and Crumb Cake ink.
  3. Stamp the tree image on the two pieces of White cardstock. On the larger piece of cardstock, stamp the tree image in the bottom left. On the smaller piece of white, stamp the tree image in the middle of the cardstock. To ink up the stamp, use the Mossy Meadow Marker to color the tree foliage. Then use the Early Espresso Marker to colour the tree trunk portion of the stamp. Huff on the image before you stamp it on your cardstock.
  4. Using the matching dies, cut out the tree image from the large piece of white stamped cardstock.
  5. Cut the label image out of the smaller piece of white cardstock, centering the tree image.
  6. Stamp the “retirement” sentiment, with Early Espresso ink, on the small scrap of Whisper White cardstock. Punch it out with the Classic Label punch.
  7. Use a die cutting machine to cut out the word “Happy” in both Early Espresso and Copper foil cardstock.
  8. To assemble attach, the larger piece of white cardstock to the front of the card base.
  9. Attach the burlap ribbon, using SNAIL adhesive, to the front of the card.
  10. Attach the label to the front of the card using dimensionals and cover out the hole left by the die cut tree.
  11. Attach the die cut tree to the label using mini dimensionals.
  12. Attach the punched-out retirement word to the front of the card using glue dots.
  13. Attach the Copper word die cut to the Espresso word die cut and slightly offset the words (so it appears that there is a shadow). Attach the words to the front of the card. Use a combination of glue dots and SNAIL.
  14. Attach the leaf trinket to the front of the card using glue dots.
  15. Tie the Mossy Meadow twine into a bow and attach it to the leaf trinket using a glue dot.

Important Notice: Stampin’ Up! recently updated my website! To ensure you have the best experience, the next time you visit my site, please make sure not to include “www.” at the front of the URL. Or you can simply click the following link and save it as a favourite so you don’t have to think about it:
If you forget and do include “www.” at the front, it’s possible you will see an error telling you the site may not be secure. That’s not true; in fact, it’s more secure than it was before the update! That “www.” is the problem.
I'm also in the process of updating my calendar of events so stay tuned for my Christmas classes!
