Pick up truck full of hearts!

Good morning!  

Click HERE for this weeks Monday Challenge! 


Did you know I have added a Picture Gallery of cards made using My Craft Spot Stamps? Click HERE to check it out!


This past week my husband and I celebrated our anniversary - we have been married for 21 wonderful years - he is the best! This is the card I made for him:


The stamped sentiments are from Inside & Out stamp sets #1 and #2.


I used my Gypsy to weld two pick up trucks (6 inches each) together to make a shape card, which I then adhered to my card base.  I had to use 2 tiny rectangles from the George cartridge to join the 'wooden rails' on the truck so they would also fold at the top.


The truck is from the Just because Cards cartridge and I used decorative edge scissors for the border.


I tied some Vintage Cherry Bakers Twine at the top and added lots of faux stitching and doodles.


I adhered the the truck and its shadow to the card base and then used pop it squares to raise some of the layers.


I added lost of hearts inside and outside of the shape card.


I also entered this in the following challenges:
Celebrate the Occassion - Anniversary
Cricut Cardz - Masculine Birthday card

Hope your day is wonderful!

  2. Happy Belated Anniversary. Love the card great idea. I am guessing that the fact that the truck opens on the front makes for a much more sturdy card rather than a shaped card. Fantastic.

  4. That is darling. Your decorative edge came out beautifully. Would you do a video on a future card showing how you were able to line up the next cut with scissors?

  31. This card is simply adorable, Kimberly! How lucky you and your hubby are to have each other and how lucky he is to have a wife who crafts! LOL I think I have visited your blog before but I came here tonight on the bidding of Emily at Create Serendipity and have just become a follower. I haven't had a chance to see a whole lot but I'll be back to have a better look around after this Beach blog hop is over. Your seam binding ribbon looks absolutely delicious.
