 After a very long hiatus I am finally back to crafting a little!  This card is for Retro Rubber Challenge Blog and our last challenge for 2023,  Merry Christmas!  Do stop by and see all the other wonderful creations! 

My family moved 1,700 miles to a new state.  Between packing, moving, and unpacking--I finally have access to part of my craft supplies.  This is what I came up for RRBC #221, Merry Christmas.
Only some of my stamps have made the move, the ancient mounted versions.  Perfect for Retro Rubber!  (A long story for another time.)  After a quick review of my paper scrap bins I pulled this card together.  It was a fun time creating after so many months!
  • After pressure embossing Spellbinders Music embossing folder, Memento Black ink is gently rubbed over the raised surface.
  • The image by Hero Arts from 1993 is stamped Brilliance Moonlight White and heat embossed with Creations Unlimited embossing powder in Silver Ice.  
  • The image is die cut with Spellbinders Labels Thirty Two,  A layer of Canson silver metallic paper is also die cut with a larger Label.  
  • Scrapbook. com Sprigs are die cut from two colors of dark green paper. 
  • To contrast the white embossed card front the edges of the card base are inked with Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy.  
  • The various layers are adhered together for a simple Christmas Card.
