It’s Retro Rubber Challenge time! Challenge #8 is “An Eye for an Eyelet”! I have so many eyelets and I rarely use them anymore. I have lots of shaped eyelets – wine glasses, beer glasses, helmets, fish, ribbons, popcorn, forks, and vegies to name a few. And I have lots of regular ones – in bunches of colors. I have all of these eyelets and used plain ole black ones for this challenge!
I have had this old truck stamp for ages as it reminds me of an old truck that used to sit on my dad’s farm. As a kid, my family drove into the mountains to some old timer’s homestead and brought back a 1921 White truck. I have a scar on my knee to prove that we went on the adventure because I fell of the back of the pickup that was pulling the old truck. This old truck sat on the farm surrounded by weeds until my mom finally sold it a few years ago. The guy who bought it thought it had once been used as a Glacier Park tour bus. Only the bus knows if that is true or not! It will eventually be reborn as a Yellowstone Park tour bus to be used in parades. Cool, right?
When mom sold the truck, I made some cards up for the gentleman who bought it using this stamp and the colors of his business. This card is a CASE of the cards I made for him (no picture to share unfortunately!).
I stamped the image on vellum and backed it with SU! so saffron paper and attached the two papers together with my eyelets. I couldn’t decide what sentiment to use, so I didn’t use any. Just some twine and a button.
Supplies: CS: SU! crumbcake, so saffron, and vellum. Old truck stamp. SU! linen thread and so saffron button. Black eyelets. Memento black ink.
