One of the secretaries at my husband's office is retiring; so he commissioned a retirement card. She is looking forward to sewing during her time off, so he said it needed to have that theme.
For this card I used Chocolate Baroque's "Sewing Room". The sentiments are from Claire Brennan's "Petite Patissarie" and Gina K's "Art From the Heart".
The pattern paper was some I found a couple of years ago in Destin, Florida. There USED to be a scrapbook outlet store there. (I was very disappointed last October when I got there and it was closed.) It was made by Creative Imaginations. The paper set my colors : gold and magenta.

Since my husband is gifting a Joann's Card, I decided to try out my new Sizzix die set: Pocket with Scalloped Edge. It is just the right size to hold a gift card. It is attached to the back of the card.

When she pulls the ribbon a gift card - as well as - a special message handwritten by my husband will come out.
