Construction Time

Hi, it's Jenny posting today with a card I made for the Be Inspired Challenge #74. The inspiration photo was so cute.  All those little trucks on the quilt reminded me of one of my son had.  Seeing it, I was inspired to use these adorable Memory Box truck dies.


First, I stamped a white A2 card using distress ink and an Impression Obsession Cover a Card stamp from my stash.  These CAC stamps from Impression Obsession are huge and will cover an entire card front.  The hill was cut out of Kraft card stock using a Spellbinders Border die.  The clouds are from a die in my stash similar to the Memory Box Puffy Clouds die.

The Excavator and Dump Truck are both Memory Box dies.  I cut them once in yellow and then the wheels and track again with black card stock.  The vehicles were popped up using Joy Foam Pads.  I cut two fence dies, joined them and cut the bottoms so they wouldn't hide the dump truck.

Last, I cut the Impression Obsession Grass die four times from green card stock.  Two pieces are behind the fence and two are in front.  I trimmed the bottom of the front grass a little so the one behind would show better.  I also popped up the front grass with Joy Foam Pads to add dimension.

Thanks for stopping by and I'm looking forward to see your challenge entries!
