We have a fun challenge for you at Time Out - retro themed projects!!!
Our sponsor for this challenge is Funky Fossil Designs - the winner will receive their choice of three stencils from the store :)
Here is my "retro" card:
I have to admit that I struggled a little bit to come up with an idea - and then I remembered my "For the Record" stamp set from Neat & Tangled, and I decided to make a record card.
I started out by using a circle die to inlay a blue circle in a black card panel (and also inlay a small silver circle in the centre of the blue circle. I then used a Simon Says circular sentiment to add the "Happy Birthday" to the blue circle. I white heat embossed the N&T sentiment across the panel - this was the most challenging part of the whole card since it involved some stamp surgery and careful lining up of the stamps. As a final step, I used the Memory Box radio wave (sadly, discontinued) to sponge on some clear embossing paste concentric circles onto the black part of the card to complete the "record" look.
I added another N&T sentiment to the inside of the card:
Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Esther from Shoregirl Creations - make sure you stop by her blog to see what she came up with.
