RRCB129 Season's Greetings in Red


Happy Tuesday, peeps!  It's time for another Retro Rubber challenge, and it's an "Anything Goes"!

Image may contain: possible text that says 'Retro Rubber Challenge #129 Anything Goes!! (must use stamps older than a year) February 25, 2020 March 6, 2020 theme challenge #rrcb129'

I recently saw a Harry and David box that contained some Christmas goodies, and I just loved the red and white theme:


So I thought it would be fun to re-create it on a Christmas card, using some retired SU dies and stamps!  I cut out a couple of houses from the Hometown Greetings dies in Real Red, tapering the bases so that I could layer them on a white card base:


I popped up the right hand layer with some mini dimensionals:


I stamped the little snowflakes in the sky and the greeting in Real Red as well, using some older Paper Pumpkin stamps:


The inside sentiment is also from Paper Pumpkin....as far as I can remember, these are from October 2017 and November 2016.


The Jingle Belles want to see lots of red on our Christmas cards, so I am entering it there, and the Christmas Kickstart challenge wants red as well!


It's always fun to have an Anything Goes challenge at Retro Rubber!  When you share yours with us, make sure your stamps are at least a year old, and tell us the age!  Can't wait to see you there!

LeAnne, what a great way to kickstart Christmas! I love the pop of the red houses and sentiment against the white and I love that you made the 'snow' red too. Claire x
