It's time for the 2nd card challenge for September over at Cards in Envy. It's time to go Retro! The challenge is to create a card featuring a style, fashion or design from the past. I'll admit, this was a bit of a struggle for me. I planned on using the typewriter stamp, but I really had to search through my paper stash for something that felt old-fashioned. I think this paper from Crate Paper works very well, especially after I distressed the edges.
paper - Crate Paper - Random
stamps - Hero Arts
ribbon - May Arts
brad - from stash
I decided to make a second card after another Design Team member mentioned October Afternoon papers. I remembered I had this space themed 8x8 paper pad with a sheet of old ads. I think it definitely fits the Retro category.
paper - October Afternoon - Rocket Age
stamp - Hero Arts
tab punch - Fiskars
star die cuts - Paper Smooches
Thanks for visiting my blog today and I'd love to have you come play over at Cards in Envy.
