Some of my friends/co-workers retired this year so, since retirement cards are some of those that I dont make very often, I made some to send to them by mail. Without really paying attention if I was using current or discontinued products, I chose some Spellbinders products that I have in my stash to create my cards….
The die set that I used is called Feathers in the Wind, and I have to confess that this is a discontinued set, but I just like it a lot, so that is why I still have it! Currently there are some other feathers dies and stamps available at the Spellbinders store, which can also work for a project like mine: Feathers Cool Vibes, Shapeabilities Feathers Etched Dies, Fair Feathers Etched Dies, Floating Feathers Stamp Set.

I also used another discontinued die set called Happy Expressions and I complemented the word “happy with the word “retirement” which I printed out with my handy dandy printer over Whip Cream cardstock. I created four cards total, same design, different colors…
The feather shape was die cut from a FSJ Printed Paper collection called Spring Filled Prints and I also die cut it from a multicolor background that I created using Journey Gel Press and some FSJ Acrylic paints…
I really like how the cards turned out. The beautiful feather can shine either way, using a printed paper or your own pattern paper.
Please be sure to check out all the awesome deals and offers available at the Spellbinders store.
