Valentine Card ~ Cemented by Your Love

Hello Crafters,

It's the weekend.  Yippee!
What do you have planned for this weekend?
I'm hoping that after all my chores today I'll be able to get in my craft room tomorrow to make some cards.  I have ideas running through my head that are just anxious to get made. 

Today I would like to share with you a Valentine Card I made.
I work in the construction field so when I saw the KaDoodle Bug Design new Construction Zone file, I knew I wanted to make a Valentine card with one or more of these images.   I decided to take the route that I haven't seen by other crafters by using the back hoe or dump truck.  So when "Cemented by Your Love" popped into my head I knew which direction I wanted to go.  

In an after thought I wish I would have matted my sign and inked my clouds but overall I like how it turned out.   

Card Recipe:

  • Card measures 9.25" H x 4" W and fits in a standard business envelope. 
  • Cement/Concrete Truck from KaDoodle Bug Designs Construction Zone file.
  • Hearts coming out of the cement/concrete truck are from KaDoodle Bug Designs You're Great Valentine file.
  • Background~Sky, Clouds, Grass, Road is from Designs on Cloud 9 - Race Track Background where i modified the road in my Silhouette Studio Designer software to be wavy and sized it to fit my card.
  • Used Ranger Glossy Accents to make it shiny.
  • Used my white gelly-roll pen to write "Loads of Love" on the tires and accent the truck, sign and hearts.
  • Sign is from the Silhouette Store, Design ID #18118. I modified in my Silhouette Studio Designer software by  cropping one to make it look like the top half of a road sign filling it in with red and placing it on top of the one not modified filled in with blue.  I added the sentiment and then print and cut it out.
  • Sign post was from my scraps but it was embossed with one of my woodgrain embossing folders after I inked it with Ranger Walnut Stain ink.
Thanks for stopping by.
Appreciate and Cherish all comment.
