Stampin' Up! Beautiful Ride Valentine Card for Mojo Monday

Stampin' Up! sets Beautiful Ride and Going Global are my choice today for a Valentine card and for the Mojo Monday challenge #433.  

You can stamp the fab VW Beetle onto patterned paper and then cut it out. I find that cutting in the opposite direction to that which you usually cut helps you keep on the line, but not cut all the line of the image if that makes sense LOL! 

The couple along with the Beetle are from the stamp set Beautiful Ride.  I've also added a tiny brad to each wheel as a hub.  The globe stamp is from Going Global along with the sentiment.  You might not be able to see, but I've heat embossed the globe by first inking my stamp with versa mark and then gently tapping the stamp onto my lost lagoon ink pad. Add embossing clear powder and it's a way of heat embossing in the colour of your choice when you don't have that colour powder.  It also gives a little 'shine' to the image.  I punched the globe out with the 2"circle punch and then put it back in place, but on stampin' dimensionals and then the soft sky piece of card acts as a back drop.  My whisper white strip is stamped with a couple of stamps from the new Timeless Textures which if you like Gorgeous Grunge you'll love this.  Some heart dry embossing with the Happy Heart embossing folder and you are set up for Valentine's day.  

Here's the sketch from Mojo Monday.  You can visit it here.

Why not have a go yourself?

More soon. Zx
