Vintage Everything Eleanor for Retro Rubber

Everything Eleanor, I Love Lace, World of Dreams


Hello, Stampers! It’s time for a new challenge with Retro Rubber, but, first, I just have to say that the submissions for the last challenge were beautiful! Floral cards are my favorite kind to make and you all obviously love them as well! Super terrific cards and almost impossible to choose from.

The next challenge is to make a vintage/lace card. I sure had some fun making this one! I first chose my stamp set and decided that Everything Eleanor had just the right look. Of course, a vintage style must be in a neutral, in my opinion, so I went with Very Vanilla and Sahara Sand. Once I had those two figured out, this card came together so fast and easy that I almost surprised myself! The background was made from the I Love Lace stamp set (retiring, unfortunately!), then the flourish stamp and smaller flowers from Everything Eleanor. I laid the new Tip Top Taupe Dotted Lace Trim down, then added the sentiment from World of Dreams on top. The flowers were stamped and fussy cut and pearls added for the final vintage touch. I made this card for my daughter, who is going off to college. I haven’t quite decided when to give it to her but hope I will give it to her without crying. She just won’t understand how even reading the sentiment right now sends me running for tissues! I haven’t completed the inside of the card yet, so I will probably give it to her later in the summer before she goes. Maybe by then I will be ready to send her on her way, but I am definitely not “there” yet.

I hope you’ll stop by and check out the rest of the Design Team inspiration over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  We would love for you to join us before the challenge closes on Friday, March 27th.
