dig it . . . like the 50's Chickadee Birthday Card for Retro Rubber

Welcome back to a new year of challenges with us here at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.   We have a great new color challenge to honor the colors of the 50's.  I personally just barely made it into the 50's by being born in 1959, the same year Barbie doll was introduced.  So I don't have many memories of this color scheme.

I've had this set from Technique Tuesday Chickadee 2.0 from 2017 and thought it would be perfect to use the color scheme.  They are cute little Chickadees!

  • The card base and backing banners are pastel yellow cardstock.  
  • The card front is pastel soft turquoise die cut with Kat Scrapiness Stitched Slimline frame.
  • The card front is stamped in VersaColor Turquoise with the sentiment from the set, "Smile".
  • The chickadees are stamped in Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black and heat embossed in Iridescent embossing powder.  Makes it easier to color inside the lines!
  • The chickadees are colored with a brush point Fantastix in Memento Angel Pink, VersaColor Seafoam, VersaMagic Thatched Straw, and VersaColor Turquoise.  They are die cut with the matching die.
  • The sentiments are stamped in VersaColor Turquoise and die cut with Lawn Fawn Sentiment banners.  The backing banners are cut from one side larger.  To get the banners the right length I die cut each of them twice for the fish tail ends.
  • The card is adhered together and is ready to send to a friend!
