Paper and Ink Imaginings

Retro Encouragement Card


While I was ironing Sunday afternoon, there were several commercials for “A Very Brady Renovation” (the show with the original “Brady Bunch” cast renovating the house that was used for the exterior shot of the show).

This is one of those “gotta let it play through” cards. Could not get the 1960’s flowers out of my head. (I was the target “tween” audience for “The Brady Bunch” and “The Partridge Family”. Friday night TV, baby!)

When I went looking for a sentiment, I found this old one from Taylored Expressions, and it SO fits with the theme of this card. (The only better choice would have been “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!”!)

While I was photographing the card, I thought, “hmmm…what about “The Dating Game” set decor??  Very similar as well!

Supplies:  Stamp – Taylored Expressions, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, PopTone RazzleBerry, Sour Apple, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise (retired), ink – VersaMark, dies – Provo Craft (flowers), Simon Says Stamp (sentiment banner), embossing powder – Ranger Super Fine Detail White.
