Clipart Fairy Retirement!

No I am not announcing the retirement of the Clipart Fairy, I have two retirement cards to show you made using Clipart Fairy kits, you can breathe a sigh of relief all you Clipart Fairy fans LOL!

I have a male and female retirement card in an Art Deco style. In both cases I have used the printables kit with extra paper from a different kit in each set.

The topper on this card is from the Retired Lady 1 printable. The frame, wording and image print out onto A4 card, which should then be scored down the left hand side of the frame, folded and then cut through both layers to make a stand alone card, (the shawl has a couple of layers of decoupage) but I cut the frame and image out and attached it to an easel card using matching papers from Retired Lady 1 Parts.
The jewelled brads I found in my stash, they are by Dovecraft, I think I picked them up at one of the shows and the feathers are also from my stash. There is quite a liberal helping of Glamour dust on the card too, but it doesn't show up in the photo.

The background and topper for this card came from the Man in a Hat topper Retirement and Birthday kit, along with a stripy paper I used on the inside, the red paper comes from Man In a Hat and Jacket Birthday  Toppers kit. I used it to cut out a rectangle larger than the topper, attach the topper with foam pads and then trim the corners to the same shape as the topper. The pocket watch is a Spell binders die, the grosgrain ribbon and brads are from MeiFlower and I used a gold peel off for the chain.

I will be back later in the week with another Clipart Fairy card, a birthday card using Little Beauties paper and one of the Little Birthday Beauties Images 

Also just a quick heads up to let you know that MeiFlower have 25% off their Satin Ribbons,
