Retro Rubber Challenge #114.. Christmas in July...

Happy July!

Here at Retro Rubber, we are starting off this month with a bang (because it’s July, after all)!

We are starting our challenge a day early so that we can team up with the Double Trouble Challenge!

Our theme is Christmas in July so all you have to do for our challenge is to make a Christmas card using at least one stamp older than a year.

Here’s the cool part: by teaming with Double Trouble, you get to play along with their challenge as well. All you need to do is follow their requirements which are super easy and fun!

  • Thing 1 – Double Trouble: Make a square card, scrapbook page, gift box or use squares on your project.
  • Thing 2 – Double Dare: Use a rubber or acrylic stamp older than one year. (Sweet – that’s us!)
  • Thing 3 – Twisted Sister: If you create a beach scene with Santa you can earn an extra chance to be in Double Trouble’s random draw.

Be sure to visit their website – Double Trouble Challenge – to get all the details for their challenge to make sure that you are following their requirements as well!

So here we go! Double the fun! Double the Trouble!

For my card I decided to use an all time fave stamp set by Newton's Nook 'Sun Soaked Christmas', I love this set and I've had it since 2016 and it has been used every Christmas since. I did the x3 things as required and I made a square card, my set is older than a year AND I created a beachy scene.

I created my background for Santa by using an MFT stencil to create the waves and then added in some clouds using my fave Dutchdoobadoo cloud stencil. The little sun die is by MFT and a new addition to my stash.

The sentiment is from the same set as Santa.

Fun card AND my first Christmas card of 2019.

Pop over to Double Trouble and Retro Rubber and see what the DT have made.

Challenge ends July 12.
