Senior Years Birthday & Retirement Cards

Hi Guys,

I hope you’re ready for some adorable cards today using the Senior Years Stamp Set and the Hippo & Friends Dies along with the Plaid Tidings Designer Series.  Just because the paper says tidings don’t think it’s just for the holidays, as I’ll show you today.  Before I get started I do want to mention that the Hippo & Friends Dies do come in the Hippo Happiness Bundle (#154080) where you can save 10%.  I will be using the Hippo Happiness Bundle on future creations.

Senior Years Birthday & Retirement Cards

I created my first card using the little lady and chose what I felt was a more feminine piece of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  Seaside Spray and Melon Mambo were my color combinations for this card.

I went with the more ornate set of Hippo & Friends Die Frames as well to add the feminine touch as well.  Coloring both these Seniors was so fun and I wanted to give you a close up of both of them today.

In the video below, I created our happy Senior Fella.  He’s sporting Night of Navy and Poppy Parade pants and a coordinating shirt and vest as you can see.

I chose the oblong octagon Hippo & Friends Dies to show him off.  I did pop up both of the Seniors layers by using our Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Please note I added rosy cheeks to them both using the Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends.

Flagging the ends identically was easy using my Triple Banner Punch and I show you exactly how to do that in the video as well.

The sentiments in the Senior Years Stamp set are perfect for many occasions, as you can see I made both a birthday card and retirement card and I got to say the sentiments do make me giggle.
