I was very honored last week. I was asked to create a card for the retiring son of the company founder for the other company I work for, James Avery Artisan Jewelry. Yes, I have another passion, jewelry!
I went with something that related to our store (location) and the company.
And, I used almost all Stampin’ Up! products! The flag piece was the only non-Stampin’ Up! paper.
We are located in a city named Pearland, hence the (retired) pears from Fresh Fruit, that personable touch! Yes, they were fussy cut! The orangish, red banner is part of the gift bag we give out for purchases.
The sentiments are from Itty Bitty Wishes. They were perfect as everyone in our store signed the card. I used the Stamparatus to line them up inside the pears.
I added the Subtle and Beads & Baubles embossed panels for some simple interest in the card.
I was very flattered that everyone loved the card. It was simple, yet masculine. And , very personable.
As with any retirement, on to the next chapter in life. Enjoy, Mr. Avery! You’ll be missed.
