Your Time of Retirement~

Hello Krafters!
It’s Krafthead here to share another quick project. I have to admit, I struggle with masculine cards. However, the Bo Bunny Timepiece Collection gives me great inspiration! I LOVE this collection. My FIL recently retired and I felt this was the perfect paper for the occasion.
The card base is Paper Trey Ink Kraft cardstock. On the cardstock, I used the stamp from the Timepiece Collection even though there was a design already on the paper. I used the same stamped image and cut it out using the labels 18 Nestabilities Die. To change the color of the die cut piece, I used my bronze homemade glimmer mist.  I also stamped on an extra piece of Kraft cardstock.
I distressed the edges of the pattern paper and Kraft cardstock with the Zutter Distress-it-All and then inked it with Walnut stain. I added white and brown brads to the corners, timepiece and die cut piece. For a little texture, I wrapped some tan embossing floss. To finish the front, I did some faux stitching around the base and middle.
For interest in the inside, I stamped the image in two corners as I did on the outside.  I cut my sentiment area with the labels 18 die. I used a piece of scrap pattern paper as well. That’s all folks J
Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~
