White Out! for Retro Rubber

White Out!  AKA white on white with one other color is our challenge at Retro Rubber to start out 2018. 

One of my new favorite colors is Rose Gold, not quite copper, but more of a pint tinge.  A childhood friend recently lost her mother to Alzheimer’s and I decided to make a sympathy card for this challenge.

I started with Spellbinders Mystical Embrace and die cut two layers of white card stock.  The card base is gently inked with Delicata Rose Gold to add just a hint of color.  The center of the large die cut is more thoroughly inked.  The sentiment by Unity Stamp Company “. . . a beautiful life, blessed memories” set from February 2015 is stamped with Delicata Rose Gold and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Heartfelt Creations Open Vintage Floret stamps and die created the flowers.  I used their new 3D Rose Mold Shaping kit to quickly shape all the layers.  One hint here, let the flowers dry completely before adhering them together, you will be frustrated if you don’t wait!  The card is adhered together and pearl accents are added to the centers of the flowers and to strategic points on the die cuts.  I think this makes an elegant sympathy card and it is on its way to my friend who was her mother’s care giver for 10 years. 

Please do join along with us at Retro Rubber and create your own project.  Remember to use a stamp that is older than a year and let us know how long it has been in your stash.  We also ask that you enter only 10 challenges including Retro Rubber.
