Hi friends, I love making novelty style cards.
I was asked by a friend to make a retirement card for her Mother In Law who was a Nurse for many years and I thought this style card worked really well.
This is a slightly different size to the Shirt Card I shared last year as a Father’s Day card idea.
These are so easy to change to football shirts and simple to personalise.
I love all the little details, which I printed off from the computer.
You simply fold in the arms and it will fit into a 5 x 7 envelope.
