Here we are this morning with a new week for the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog. Our Design Team challenge this week was Love and Valentine cards and I've selected Polkadoodles Wedding Car for my Design Team card.
Although it's not a quote 'Valentine' card, it is all about love and in recognition of the first year wedding anniversary for my husband and I!
I started by sizing the image to fit the front of a 5 1/2" square card. After printing on Neenah 110 # cardstock, I used my Copic markers for coloring, and then used a stitched square die for the edging on the colored image and the solid olive matting. I used solid black and made the card base at 5 1/4" square, then added these two layers on top. This basically makes the square card a completed card, which could be mailed separately at this point.
Next I added the deep red strips on each end of the black background paper. These strips measure 5-1/8" x 1-1/8". I sized the digital sentiment to fit on the sentiment piece then printed and trimmed the sentiment to fit the allowable area.
I also printed the words I 'd selected for the inside sentiment at this time. Each of the sentiment pieces is secured on the vertical strips and the third piece is secured inside the card. Once everything is attached and dry, I glued and secured the black card 'back' to the center of the larger piece, making sure when opened that the front is slightly shorter so that the card will open and stand alone. For the final touch I added the purple filigree cut pieces on each side of the card and then added the sparkly ribbon to the outside top layer of the card.
Now the car is ready for someone's special day!
