Retro Rubber Challenge #53...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge! This is our last one for 2016! I can’t believe the year is almost over! This challenge is a color inspiration based on the picture in the challenge image.


I used a palette of cream and white with just a smidge of red and green thrown in. I started with some white texture paste and a snowfall stencil. I added the paste to the cream cardstock that I had run thru the linen impression plate and cut down a bit to go on the white card base.

I stamped the sentiment (circa 2015) and then added a die cut set of holly leaves and berries on the edge. Finally, I popped the sentiment up over the card front. I love the simplicity of the card with all that neutral and small pop of color.

I bow to the Queen of Clean!!!!!
Goodness Jane, this is as beautiful as a real snow fall, I thought you achieved this look with an embossing folder but, when I saw it closer, I realized it was done with embossing paste.
I have the stencil but not the paste so I'm getting me some to give this a try, it looks amazing.
Love your sentiment and the sweet pop of color of the little Holly.
Big Hugs,

Claire Grantham

DAMN!!! You are the Queen of Clean and like Maria, I bow to your greatness..this is AH.MAZING. I want to touch it or lick it (looks like Royal Icing) I can't decide. Stunning. Clairex

Jane, everyone has said it already but can I just add, Inspired!! You are the very definition of CAS. I have to learn how to feel comfortable with the absolute elegance that this style brings with it. This card is simply stunning! Hope your holidays are wonderful and you get caught up with your sleep LOL. Looking forwarding to working with you again next year, my dear Fearless Leader!

So totally in awe of your CAS style! You are truly a master of a stunning card! This will be CASEd by many I am sure!


Love the pop of green and red against the white. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week

Gosh, Jane... everyone has already said all the comments that I would have added. There is a definite technique to CAS to make it a truly memorable card. And you certainly know how to do that. One of these days, I will get out my embossing paste and play with it... so thanks for the reminder. I also love the look of cream and white together... have been doing more of that myself. Stunning card that I am off to pin....

Julie Gearinger

Love this CAS card with the textured background- absolutely gorgeous! So thrilled to be able to design alongside you for this challenge- hugs and have a blessed Christmas!

Christine Traversa

I thought that was an embossing folder! I always forget about my paste! Thanks for the inspiration! Your biggest fan, CT❤️
