Anything Goes for Retro Rubber

 It's time for a new challenge at Retro Rubber and it is one of everyone's favorites!  Anything goes!

Today I have a CAS sympathy card that you can have in the mail in no time!  I use one of my favorite techniques with embossing folders, and then added a ribbon touch.

  • To achieve the inlaid embossed look I inked up the raised portion of Sizzix Embossing Folder Moroccan with Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy.  Then pressure embossed and trimmed the card front down the the inked edges.
  • The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co. . . . beautiful life, blessed memories set.  It is stamped in Pearlescent Poppy.
  • A simple bow is tied and mounted with a glue dot below the sentiment.
  • The card front is adhered to a matching A2 card base.  


  • We require stamps older than one year.  If we feel you are using newer stamps, you may be disqualified from the challenge without notification.
  • New papers/dies are OK – but you must use at least one stamp older than a year and describe the age in your blog post.
  • Please note that all challenges require the use of at least one stamp older than a year.

  1. Neva, this technique of inking the embossing folders is awesome and I love how your panel looks in that soft pink ink.
    A soothing and comforting layout for the recipient.
    Stay healthy and safe.
