Hi Crafty Friends,
It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Tracey Farr our challenge hostess for the month finishes off her month with one last challenge.
Get your Retro on! Make a card in a "Retro' theme. Interpret 'Retro' any way you like!
It took me a while to figure out what to do for this challenge. Finally after playing with Trinity Stamps Slimline Room Builder die set, I wondered what it would be like to turn the wood floor into a black and white checkered floor to resemble an old fashioned diner. I added a piece of pink patterned paper to the top portion of the room and then used an old PSX record stamp to decorate the panel.
I used Paper Pretties "Dreamboat" stamp set, or the couple in the centre of the card. The table is an older stamp from EccenTricks. I added a couple of ice creams to the table from an older Crafter's Companion stamp set. I added the jukebox to the right hand side of the card.
For the inside of the card, I added two more pattern paper panels to the top and bottom edges of the card that were stamped using the records I used on the front of the card.
I created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Katherine Label pop-up die set. Both sentiments used on this card are from Honey Bee Stamps.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
