My card for today is from a FREE Sale-A-Bration set.Yes, I said FREE. don’t you just love that?  From now through March 31, for every $50.00 you spend you get to choose one item from the special Sale-A-Bration catalog. There are a great stamp sets, along with ribbon, and designer series paper.

This card includes two sets from the SAB catalog: Tasty Trucks and Delicate Details.

Tasty Trucks, Delicate Details, Stampin’ Up!

 

 

I thought the different border stamps in the Delicate Details set were all lovely, but I needed a little whimsy for this card.  So the wavy border was perfect for my vision.  The set being in photopolymer makes it extremely easy to see through and line up the ends.  I like the Smile factor this look gives my little truck.  I stamped the border and truck in Archival Basic Black ink and colored the truck with our wonderful new Watercolor Pencils and a Blender pen.  I know I have used these on most of the posts I have done, but they are just so much fun and so simple to use. They are the Cat’s Meow of my favorite tools right now!  And yes I adore cats, and dogs!!

I started the card with a base of Daffodil Delight card stock and then a layer of Basic Black card stock.  I did all of the stamping on Whisper White card stock.  I needed something across the top because the Delicate Details border is longer than my 3 7/8 ends and I could not quickly decide how to make it meet.  So I added a Pacific Point strip to mirror the blue stripe on the truck. To equal everything out I placed an Enamel Star on each end of the Pacific Point strip.  I then used Brian King’s squint test and decided it needed an additional something.  I then stamped “Congratulations” from the Tasty Truck set and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.  That was the finishing touch.

The measurements for this one are:

  • Basic card of 5 1/2 X 8
  • Basic Black is 5 1/4 X 4
  • Whisper White is 5 1/8 X 3 7/8
  • Pacific Point is 3/4 X 5 1/8
