Fire Truck Card ~ Color Dare 331

Open through Thursday March 7th

We reference Close To My Heart colors BUT you can use whatever brand you have as long as it's a close match. DO NOT add any brand new colors though or your entry will be disqualified. 

This was  a fun card to make because it's for my fire truck loving grandson. He is just crazy for anything to do with fire trucks and fire fighters! The colors for this challenge spoke to me and said use the fire truck! LOL

I used our Make It from Your Heart How-to book for a card pattern. This makes it SO easy because the cutting and placement guides are right there with some sample ideas. So easy!

I splattered some red shimmer brush on the top of the card and I double stamped the "vroom". Both add a bit of texture. The stripes in the ribbon kind of remind me of a road. Ok...that's a bit of a stretch but just go with me on it, ok? LOL 

The blue lines mean this set also has an option with Thin Cuts!

  1. Great card for a little guy who loves fire trucks! The red and kraft go so well together. The truck image is fantastic!

  2. Love it!! I am sure your grandson will love it as my son would and he is a rescue fanatic!

    1. Thanks, Cat. Sounds like they are of the same mind!

  3. Excellent layout and love the red against the kraft. And thank you so much for your comment on my card...I can't take all that credit because it is truly the detail in the stamp and I just blended the my copics. By the way, your card also meets our TicTacToe challenge At Double Trouble, middle row: sentiment, image, sparkle glitter.

    1. Thanks, Sue. I was going to check out Double Trouble this morning. I'll head over now and enter my card.

    2. Thanks for sharing Michelle...appreciate it.

  4. I was a fire chiefs daughter so I have a love of fire trucks too! I love your splattered background and the touch of ribbon is perfect! Thanks for joining us at Double Trouble.
