Dashing Deer for Retro Rubber Challenge 122 - Design Team Card

This week at Retro Rubber Challenge, Claire has created a sketch for us to play with. Of course, since this is Retro Rubber, you do need to use at least one stamp that's a year or more old and give us an approximate age for it. 

It's not too early to be thinking of Christmas cards. Although there are lots of wonderful new sets in the Holiday Catalogue, the great sets keep you coming back to them. Dashing Deer and the matching Detailed Deer dies, from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue, are just such ones for me. If you missed out on them last year, they're still current and you can find them in the 2019 Annual Catalogue - or you can visit my online store by clicking the link in the sidebar.

The trees, stamped in Silvery Shimmer pigment ink, are from 2018's Rooted in Nature.

I liked Claire's sketch so much that I made a couple of cards with it before choosing one for my Design Team card. If you'd like to see the other, it uses the same set - Dashing Deer - and it's here.

To see what the rest of the team have done with this sketch, and to link up your entry, pop over to the Retro Rubber Challenge site.

  1. Jan, so happy that you loved the sketch so much you used it again. It's such a versatile one! I LOVE that your trees are stamped in silver, it has added a nice shimmer to your card. You know I am a sucker for embossing folders, this one is amazing. And I am a big fan of navy, white and silver for christmas makes. Cx

  2. Such a pretty Christmas card with lovely shimmery details. The ribbon a pretty touch for the banners part of the sketch.

  3. Jan, love your soft silvery pine trees behind this gorgeous deer, so elegant and beautifully adorned.
    Love the embossed panel that adds a lovely texture to your main image.

  4. Trying to catch up after vacation. Loved guesting for the last challenge & what a great sketch for the new one. Your card is gorgeous--love the silver trees in the background!
