Guest Designing for Retro Rubber Challenge...

 Hi! I am very excited to be a guest designer at the Retro Rubber Challenge! This is a great blog that hosts weekly sketch, color, or theme challenges. The main requirement is that we use at least one stamp set that is more than a year old. This is such a great way to give some love to the older members of our stash!

My card today features an old stamp set by Altenew called Big World. This set was released way back in July 2016. I bought it a couple of years ago and never got around to inking it. Here is the card I created.

This is an interactive card, based on a tutorial by Jennifer Mcguire. You can find the original post here.

When you pull the tab, the globe flips over.

I stamped the globes with Altenew inks in blue and green. This set is one of the easiest to layer. Once both the globes were stamped, I used circle dies to cut them ou. The stand and the sentiment on the main panel were heat embossed with the Lapis Lazuli Blue Gold embossing powder by Lindy's Stamp Gang. Here is a closer look at the interactive element.

I finished the card by putting the panel on a dark blue card base. The word 'Pull' on the tab is from the Interactive Card stamp set by Mudra Craft Stamps. As a final touch, I trimmed the tab and rounded the corners using a corner rounder.

Here is another look at the completed card with the flap closed.

And flap open.

I hope you liked my card and will give this style a chance! Don't forget to pull out your older stamps and give them some love. You can link your creations to the Retro Rubber Challenge.

I look forward to hearing from you.
