Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Watercolored Frenchie Retirement Card!

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie

Hello crafters, it’s Nina-Marie here with you today! I am very excited to be back again with you this week, sharing a Summery retirement card using our Simon exclusive Chillin’ Frenchies stamp set!

When you retire, I feel like that qualifies as a permanent vacation, right? I know a few retirees that say they are busier now than they were when they worked! But at least if you are retired, you can make your own schedule… so that seems almost like a vacation! :) 

I paired this beach-lovin’ Frenchie with an umbrella from our Simon exclusive Summer Cuddly Critters stamp set, and our new Waves background cling stamp… that watery effect was super-fun to create! I used watercolors and Distress Resist Spray for an beachy waves (or maybe poolside!) feel. 

Of course, I couldn’t help but use some fun sequins in my design, so I popped a few of the new Marina sequins around the card, which really tied in well with the rest of the colors I used! 

Want to see how I made this card? Be sure to check out the video below!
