Retirement Card Free Digi Stamp Printable


One of my dear friend's husband is celebrating retirement of 37 (38) years from Michelin Tires.  I really wanted to make him a special card, since he is my favorite chef host of our cardmaking/art party weekends.  :)  Of course, I have no retirement themed stamps or dies, so I made a digi stamp to share with you.  Feel free to download or Pin this printable for future use.  Right click and open in a new tab then print or just hit your Pin It button now.


I die cut an arrow to fill the gap, but I'm sure you could add a stamp or other die if you need this card for a woman.


The papers are Tim Holtz with DOX added here and there.  I embossed a Tim Holtz border die and inked the centers with DOX.  The little man brad is also TH.  And whoops!  He's actually worked for 38 years, but I was able to swap out the numbers just before delivery.  I had already taken the pics though...  LOL!  Thanks for looking!

This is a fabulous male retirement card, Autumn! You are amazing with the masculine cards! I just love the border die cut and how you replaced the off cuts. Looks great with the neutral plaid paper! You are so durn smart to make your own digi stamp! I bet he loves his card almost as much as his new status! Sending hugs!

I really like this steam punk/masculine vibe! The creative mixing of layers, patterns, textures, colors, and techniques is fantastic! They add so much interest and variety. Keep crafting!

The perfect colours and style for a Bloke's card. Lots of interesting things going on, especially the tiny, male image and the metal numbers. Fabbo!
