Hello and good morning...
Happy Monday!!!! It was a great weekend and I got to spend some one on one time with my oldest daughter and we had fun and I LOVED watching how special she felt. I'm glad I took some extra time to do that, it was truly priceless.
Up on the Card in Envy blog is a new cool challenge to play along with. The challenge: RETRO!!!!!
What is retro? Well, our definition of retro is..." old fashioned style."
So what might your RETRO card feature? It could be made with old
fashioned colors like those from the 50s, 60s, 70s--think harvest gold
and avocado green, or clothing or other items from those past years.
Heck, now retro can even be the 80s and 90s. You could even make your
card to look like how a card might have looked from a certain decade or
another idea is to use hippie clothing, the peace sign etc. which is
certainly retro too. Still confused? Then maybe our Designers'
creations can help you out and offer you a bit of inspiration.
Here is the card that I came up with:
I used an older Echo Park line, I was was going to a 50s 60s vibe to the card. I even added a fun album sticker.
I popped out some of the argyle patterns:
remember that our challenge is for A2 (4.25" x 5.5") cards ONLY. We do
not accept entries for square cards AND your card must be relatively
FLAT with no lumpy bumpy embellishments, bows etc. because we want all
CARDS IN ENVY to fit in a regular envy for mailing with a single first
Hope you check it out and play along!!!!
Have a great day
