Anything Goes at Retro Rubber

 Everyone's favorite, Anything Goes for the next two weeks at Retro rubber.

I had a need for a quick birthday card for my mother-in-law.  Since we still have sunflowers blooming, I went with that theme.  I also had a few spares from another card that will publish on Oct. 21 for Imagine Crafts Design Team.  If you are interested in the tutorial to make the flowers you can check back later!

  • Heartfelt Creations Sunflowers stamps, dies, and shaping mold are used to create the flowers.  VersaFine Clair in Cheerful is used for the flowers and Green Oasis for the leaves, both on complementary colored cardstock.  A quick heat emboss with clear embossing powder allows a mist of water in the shaping process.
  • The background is stamped with the leaves in VersaFine Green Oasis, then pressure embossed with xxxx die.
  • The Sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations and is stamped in VersaFine Cheerful on white cardstock and heat embossed before being die cut with a Spellbinders Standard Circle Large.  The edges are inked slightly with an ink dauber in VersaFine Clair Cheerful as is the card base.  
  • After the flowers are dry, they are layered together, and wet glue is added to the center along with some black glitter.  
  • The card is assembled using dimensional foam tape and glue dots to hold the flowers and leaves in place.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
