Valentines for the Guys

I am still in Valentine mode and this week the focus is on creating more masculine Valentines. Therefore, I have reached for Kitchen Sink's Multi Step Classic Old Truck. This set is so easy to line up and what fun it is to create old trucks in any color!

10 Minute Card

For the 10 minute card I just stamped a red truck on a white panel and laid it down on an angled panel and a bit of designer paper before stamping a quick sentiment.

10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More Card

I took my extra 10 minutes to cut out the truck (I can't believe I have had my Silhouette since October and haven't found the time to get it out of the box and hook it up!!) and masked off the background to create this mountain and pines scene. I wanted the clustered trees but not the snow so after stamping the Multi Step Snowy Pine Trees I sponged over them with a light green. The truck is popped up on dimensionals.
