Retro Rubber 66 - DT Card

So much fun in this week's challenge at Retro Rubber - it's wedding time! That's right - get out your old stamps and create a wedding card. Just use at least one stamp older than a year and don't forget to tell us how old it is.

There's a lot of old stuff in this wedding card. The embossing folder and the dies are both older than a year as well. The stamp is from SU's Floral Phrases, new in the 2016-17 catalogue. That's where the stamp on the inside, and on the envelope, came from too.

Please join us in the challenge - we love to see what you do. Apart from the rule about an old stamp and telling us how old it is, the only other thing to remember is not to link up to more than ten challenges in total.

Card: Very Vanilla, Acetate window sheet, Early Espresso. Gold foil
Stamps: Floral Phrases
Ink: Early Espresso (inside and envelope), versamark
Other: Gold embossing powder, Sunshine Wishes thinlits, dimensionals, Hearts embossing folder.
All products Stampin' Up.


  1. Jan, this is one gorgeous card, love how the hearts look with the acetate in the back, this is a beautifully CAS and elegant design, love the embossed panel too.
    Lovely card, teammate.

  2. This is lovely Jan - very elegant! It would work in a number of different colourways too. Love the decorated envelope too - so easy to forget these lovely touches.

  3. Hi, Jan!
    My name is Karen. I saw your sweet card over on the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog. I'm in love with that heart die-cut you used. I couldn't find any information here about what company it is from. Could you possibly help me out? You can stop by my blog and leave a comment to let me know. I'd be so grateful. By the way, I also run a challenge blog; and if you'd like to play along, I'd be thrilled to have you link up any time. It's called Word Art Wednesday www.wordartwednesday.blogspot.co,m

    Thanks so much for your help. Your card is stunning.
