How to Create a Super Cool Retro Card!

Hello, CutCardStock fans! Leslie here, and thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! Who doesn’t need totally awesome birthday cards in their stash? I know I’ve mentioned before that I probably create more birthday cards than any other kind of cards, and that’s simply because I love a variety! The card I’m sharing with you today features Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock along with Pop-Tone Razzleberry and Pop-Tone Orange Fizz! Get ready for some psychedelic fun! 😉

I cut a standard size A2 top-fold card base from Classic Crest Baronial Ivory 80# cardstock as well as layering pieces from Pop-Tone Orange Fizz cardstock, Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock and a retro print from my stash. For the inside, I cut a plain panel from the Classic Crest Baronial Ivory 80# cardstock, a layering piece from the Pop-Tone Orange Fizz cardstock, and strips from the Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock and retro print from my stash. I rounded the bottom right corner of the card base and all the layers.

I stamped the jukebox and boomerang in black ink on the Classic Crest Baronial Ivory 80# cardstock and cut them with the coordinating dies. I created three extra jukebox die cuts to layer underneath the stamped one for some dimension. I stamped the inside sentiment on the plain panel.

I adhered the retro print and Pop-Tone Orange Fizz cardstock to the card base and then added the Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock strip. I adhered the jukebox and boomerang to the front of the card. I stamped a star and a jack in pink ink and another star and jack in orange ink, cut them with the coordinating dies, and added them to the front.

For the inside panel, I adhered the retro print and stamped panel to the Pop-Tone Orange Fizz cardstock layer, added the thin Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock strip, and adhered the panel to the inside of the card base.
