Retirement by the sea

Yesterday I made ten quick cards using supplies from a free Hunkydory members gift - all about the seaside. The way the weather has turned I somehow don't think any of the cards will get used now this year, but will be ready for next!

At first I was going to make five cards using the A4 cards folded, but then I decided that it seemed a bit of a waste to use the other halves on the back of the cards, so I cut all of them and mounted on to white A5 card blanks, that way I got ten cards instead of five.

The silver foiled sentiment says: 'We'll miss you! Enjoy your retirement!'. I added two little flip flop embellishments.

This is for:
