V is for Vehicle

Hello there. I have a card to share for the new challenge which has begun as The Alphabet Challenge. We have reached the letter ‘V’ and Deborah has chosen the theme of ‘Vehicle’.

This whole card is completely outside of my comfort zone and involved a lot of die cutting and gluing – some very fiddly parts to this die set – and yet I quite enjoyed it.

I wanted to use the die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs, but I didn’t want to create a Christmas themed card, so you can see I changed it a little…….well, quite a lot actually.

I wanted the train to be shiny, so I used some ‘new to me’ mirror card from The Paper Boutique. This was shown is a Facebook live by Sir Stampalot here in the UK – and I immediately went and ordered it.

There are a lot of little pieces to put together, and I didn’t know which colour I wanted to go where on the train, so I die cut everything out of the two colours of card stock – so technically I have enough to make another train.

I added some stickles to the holes on the engine, and some vellum behind the window on the cab. Using tweezers was certainly very, very helpful – and glue which dries clear…..

I used a blue slimline card base, ink blended some clouds on the background – very subtle – then added some grass and rolling hills.

The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.

I hope you can come and join us with your ‘vehicle’ creations. xx
