Retro Style


I hope that your week is going well :)  Today I have two different cards to share with our recently released mid century modern inspired stencils.  One is very CAS and the other packs a punch with its full pattern.

First up is a card that was inspired by the photo over at Time Out.  I was struck by the colour combo and retro style shapes of the furniture:

I used our Retro Pattern Builder stencils to create this CAS design.  As I have tried to leave a lot of white space I will also link up at AAA Cards where the challenge is to go as minimal as possible!

For my second card I have gone full on retro with the Retro Rectangles Stencil.  By offsetting it slightly when inking it gives a slightly 3D appearance.  I have added a large birthday sentiment to offset the strong pattern:

I shall link up at Seize the Birthday where the theme is to focus on the sentiment.

I hope that you like these retro stencils!


Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Both cards are fab! The first thing that came to mind was the Jetsons!

  2. Oh Sarah hoe awesome is your first card. So unique and so eye pleasing! Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges too.

  3. These are both so wonderful. I really love the clean design of your first card, and how you were inspired by our photo. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.

  4. Such fun! Retro just makes me so happy. Love your minimalistic approach to the TO inspiration photo. Don't you just love those colors? And brown and orange? Takes me back to my childhood.

  5. Great cards. Love the retro theme. The big birthday sentiment on the vellum is perfect for that background. Thanks for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday.
