Transportation theme for Retro Rubber

 So here we are closing in on the end of summer.  Our theme at Retro Rubber is transportation, and as you will notice by the Design Team's cards, any type will do!


I have a stamp set from Unity Stamp Company that I purchased back in 2013, "Consider yourself vintage" that was perfect for this challenge.  Using The Stamps of Life Oval Grid die set made very quick work of putting together  card with visual interest.

  • The car image is stamped on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black, along with the sentiment.
  • The oval die is centered around the car and die cut.
  • The sentiment trimmed to size.
  • The grid portion is die cut from two sets of patterned paper, Most likey by Essential Paperz, but it was in my "card making" scrap tote, and have no idea how long it's been around.  But it works perfectly with this image!  (Bonus:  I have the outline, and grid pieces to make at least 3 more cards!
  • Black cardstock is trimmed and adhered to the card front.  
  • I used a centering ruler to center and adhere the image oval with thin dimensional foam adhesive.
  • The grid pieces are alternated and adhered to the black cardstock.
  • The card needed a little pop of color so the sentiment is backed with a scrap of red cardstock and adhered with thicker dimensional foam adhesive.
