Cupid's Pimped Out Ride

Happy February everyone! Boy oh boy does the time pass fast! Today, I have a Valentine card for you that I originally made for the Ranger Booth at CHA, using the Old Jalopy Tim Holtz  Sizzix Die that is now discontinued, so hoard yours if you have it.  It's loaded with Ranger Stickles and lots of Idea-ology!  
Using Tim's Core'dinations Cardstock, I die cut the Jalopy in red, black, and silver foil for layering.
Using a black cardstock card base, I die cut the heart border along the bottom. Excuse the turquoise cardstock, at the last minute I changed it out for a pink tone.
I glued all the Jalopy pieces in place, and then added a label and number 14 from Remnant Rubs.
Then came lots and lots of Stickles, in every red family tone I had, plus platinum and silver. Then I punched out lots of hearts and added Stickles to them as well.I also pounced Mushroom Alcohol Ink onto pieces of Shrink Plastic for the windows, and used Glossy Accents to attach it, and Crackle Accents on the headlights too.
I embossed the background card (now pink) with a Texture Fade, and inked over the raised portions with various Distress Inks. After all the Stickles were dry, I embellished the Jalopy with some metal pieces. I also stitched the background card along the border, and added a sentiment with Remnant Rubs.
     
 
I'm off to make more Valentine goods! It's another one of my favorite times to make cards and crafts...you know all that red!!! Until next time!

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
