Birthday Card for Retro Rubber Blog Color Challenge 19

For the next two weeks we have a fun color challenge over at Retro Rubber Blog Challenge.  Check it out!  Aren’t these great summer colors?

I went through my card stock color scraps and found just the right colors to create this feminine Birthday card.   

The sentiment is so old I don’t know who made it, only that is once was on a foam square and is purple rubber!  Probably one of those small sets I bought a Michael’s more than 20 years ago.  It is stamped in Tsukinkeo Versa Magic Red Magic on the light green card stock.  The Spellbinder’s Labels Eight was centered over the stamped image and die cut and pressure embossed.  Red card stock was die cut and pressure embossed with Spellbinder’s Decorative Labels Eight.  The darker blue card stock was pressure embossed with Cuttlebug’s Bit of Paisley.  Spellbinder’s Classic Bracket cut the red card stock accent, and the light blue card stock is the edge of the largest size of the Spellbinder’s Decorative Labels Eight.  I like to use die to cut more than just the intended shape, as in this case a decorative edge.  The light green card stock is stamped with a stamp set Flourishes v. 2 by Rhonna Farrer and manufactured by Autumn Leaves.  It has been in my stash around 10 years.  The images are stamped with Tsukinkeo Versa Magic Red Magic and the edges are inked to finish the look of the card.  All the layers are adhered to the base card with the sentiment adhered with dimensional foam adhesive. 

It is always lovely to have a few Birthday Cards ready to send and this challenge was the impetus to create a pretty card!  Please come on over to Retro RubberBlog Challenge and check out what other creations the design team have created to inspire you to use these summery colors to create something beautiful.  Give your forgotten but formerly loved retro rubber a little time on your craft table and play along!
