Happy Graduation (better late than never!)

Hello Retro Rubber fans . . . my post is very late, my apologies.  The last week had been filled with visits to the ER with two different family members, one was followed by emergency surgery and a hospital stay.  So my blogging ground to a halt, but now I’ve a few minutes to share my card with you for the latest Retro Rubber Blog Challenge from the following sketch.

I had a number of Graduation cards to make so the sketch came in handy to create this quick and simple version.

The Technique Tuesday Grad stamp from 2015 is stamped in Delicata Black Shimmer and heat embossed with Iridescent Embossing Powder.  Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze is added with a rubber brayer to make the image stand out.  The image is mounted on black cardstock and iridescent ribbon is added along the bottom edge.  The sentiment from the same set is stamped in Delicata Silvery Shimmer and heat embossed with Silver Surf Embossing Powder.  The black cardstock is mounted to an A2 card base and was ready to be sent to the lucky graduate!

Thanks for stopping by and there is still time to play with the challenge through June 30th at Retro Rubber Blog Challenge.  Just remember to use a stamp that is at least a year old and tell us how long it has been around, and to enter no more than 10 total challenges!


  1. First of all (big hugs)! Second, that blue background absolutely rocks as does your total color combo! Super great grad card with awesome detail. Hang in there!❤️❤️

  2. The graduated colors background really makes the graduates silhouette pop ! Hoping things are much better for you and your family members.


I love to read your comments, they make me smile to know you enjoy my creativity! Thank you!
