Mechanic Retirement Card

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope you all are enjoying your Saturday so far. It's been raining and storming here the past couple of days and it rained pretty hard all last night, so now some areas around us are flooded. So I'm staying home to work on some crafty projects I need to do.
So, todays project is a retirement card for a mechanic.  I used a file called Little Mechanics from Cuddly Cute Designs for this project. I purchased this when they had a sale last week but now I can't seem to find that file on their site. They just released a super cute file that is similar to this one called Mechanic Cuties.

So, my Dad has a guy at his work that's been a mechanic there for 34 years. He is going to retire on Friday, so when I saw this file I thought it would be perfect for a retirement card for him. I dry embossed the background with a diamond plate cuttlebug folder.

Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:
