This week on Celebrate the Occasion was the theme retirement. I used a Create a Critter Cricut cart. and cut out the cute giraffe. I put it on a Toilet paper roll flattened, and covered in cute paper. I put the eyelets at the bottom of the toilet paper roll so that it would keep its shape. It is now the perfect place to insert a tag cut on the cricut using Tags, Bags, Boxes and more. This little tag holder is a perfect fit for a GIFT CARD!! Who doesn't love a gift card?? I just printed out the saying, "It has been a LONG time coming.' Because giraffes have LONG necks, and retirement seems to take forever, hee hee.
The circle card was store bought that chape and I embossed it using my cute sizzix purse boutique embossing machine. The paper with the spots is SEI. The inside of the card says, Happy Retirement. The congrats ribbon is ffrom Martha Stewart. This would also make a cute congrats card.
There you have it. Now go to Celebrate the Occasion and see what yummies the design team have in store for you :)
