Card #109: Congratulations!

It’s always more fun making cards when you have a reason to use them.  And with that, I’m sure you’re thinking that I made an Easter card this week, considering the holiday is in two days.  But, I didn’t.  Other than Christmas, I typically only send holiday cards to one residence, and I still had an Easter card left over from last year, so I sent that this week.

No, earlier this week my mom asked me if I had any retirement cards.  I didn’t, but I told her I could make one.  When I heard that the card was for her mailman, I got kind of excited.  I’ve had this piece of scrapbooking paper in my collection for years that I knew would be just perfect for the occasion.

It’s postage stamps!  Perfect, right?  I wanted to use a layout that would really feature the paper, so I found this layout on Pinterest.  This design would be perfect for any card where you really want the focus to be the paper.  I wish I had a “congrats on your retirement” stamp, but the only one at  Hobby Lobby wasn’t very attractive and that’s pretty much my only local source for rubber stamps anymore, other than the very small selection at Joann’s.

Well, I better go get ready for the Good Friday service at church tonight.  A blessed Resurrection Sunday to you!
