The cook at my work has decided to retire this year. When I asked her what her plans are for retirement, she told me that she plans to do more travelling with her husband, most likely to more casinos. I saw an iris folding car with suitcases on Pinterest and decided that would fit well with a casino as the background.
This is the result:
The card size is 5X7 inches. I cut the car imagine out with my Silhouette Cameo and printed out the iris folding design. I used purple and red paper for the suitcases, black paper for the tires, gray paper that I inked up with distress ink for the bumpers, and blue paper (her favorite color) for the whole of the car. I cut little black strips to go over the suitcases and a black rear windshield. The headlights are cut from red paper. I completed the iris folding by following the pattern on the print out I mentioned earlier. The road and brown sandy areas I cut by hand. I printed out an image that I found on google for the background. I wanted it to look as if the car is driving to Las Vegas. I cut the image to fit around the car and pasted all of the pieces onto the card. I used my Sketch Pens to write the Happy Retirement and my Cameo to cut out the blue oval. I adhered the oval onto a piece of foam to make it pop a little.
On the inside:
Good Luck! Written with my Sketch pens on a white oval and then pasted onto a blue oval.
