Retro Rubber Challenge #42...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge! We have an embellishment challenge for you this time so break out your brads and eyelets and put them on a card!


I made a birthday card to give to a dear friend of mine who is older than me as I LOVE to remind her! To incorporate both brads and eyelets (you only need to use one or the other but I am an overachiever!), I made a “picture” to hang on the card. rrcb 42 1 (545x640)

I stamped a bitty flower and the sentiment (both stamps I have had over a year – more like about two I would guess) and then die cut using the stitched mini scallop die. rrcb 42 2 (640x474)

Then I added some pink eyelets and thread and “hung” on a brad. I think she will like it!

Be sure to play along with us! Link up your fab creations HERE!

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to pop in tomorrow!

Supplies: CS: PTI white. SU! crumbcake. Stamps: PTI bitty bouquets. SSS sketchy banner greetings. Other: MFT mini stitched scallop squares. PTI linen impression plate. Eyelets. Brads. SU! linen thread.

Hello Jane: Oh, your friend will totally love it, I like the idea of this "picture" hanging on the "wall".
Totally CAS and beautiful.
Did you use the Cropadile (is this what it's called?) for the eyelets? I've seen this tool but I don't have one, I apply my eyelets the old fashioned way, by hammering them with this little tool and my hammer.

Jane you are the queen of CAS! This picture frame idea using eyelets and brads is one I will need to copy and steal. Love it!

Jeanne H

I really like the simplicity of your card. Love the pink flower too. Now to get out my brads...have a ton!

Debbie Mageed

Well, you sure showed me how to use BOTH an eyelet and brad on a card. Not only that but you did it with your perfectly wonderful CAS style. I do not know how you do that but all I can do is say "WOW, beautiful card!" Love it!!

Christine Traversa

Katy McGloin

Yes, dear Jane... you are our overachiever team captain, LOL... Such a perfect design for using both brads and eyelets. Now I must look go find that stitched mini scallop die! I already had to look up the resting bird dies from another post! Such a great enabling friend, you are!!

Claire Grantham
