A fifties Christmas...
Retro Rubber Challenge #4

Dashing thru the snow....

I will be a little sorry to see Christmas come and go.  I have so many wonderful Christmas stamp sets that I have barely touched the surface!  So I plan to continue to play along with the Merry Monday and Festive Friday challenges to take advantage of using my Christmas stamps.

So that said, I am playing along with the Friday Mashup.  We were charged with using gray and silver or dry or heat embossing or both mashed together.  Well I managed to hit all four requirements.  I used SU! basic gray and brushed silver along with a bit of dry embossing and at the last minute some heat embossing. 

I am showing the same card in two different ways.  I started out with this one:

Www.seejanestamp.com 4 (588x640)And then decided to add the heat embossing with the snowflakes on this one:

Www.seejanestamp.com 1 (576x640)To be honest, I am not sure which I like better. 

The small pop of color showcases the die cut and the curve of the sentiment follows the curve of the die.   Thank you photopolymer stamps!  I used my SU! stripes embossing folder to add a bit of texture to the snow diecut. 

Www.seejanestamp.com 5 (640x441)Off I go to tackle Tuesday!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies:  CS:  SU! basic gray, brushed silver, and so saffron.  Stamps: PTI in the meadow and wonderful words – snow.  Dies/EF:  SU! stripes ef.  PTI wonderful words – snow and 1960s dies.  Memento black ink.

I like them both as well. I think I prefer the first, really clean card. Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.
