Vintage Soul

Hey everybody! Happy Hump Day – I hope you’re having a great week! I’m back with my second post this morning, this time to share a Keep It Simple inspiration project! Our design team celebrated the new product launch for the Vintage Truck Dies with an Instagram Hop and Giveaway about a week and a half ago (while our internet was down) and I showcased a fun acetate card for the Hop using this amazing die set! I wasn’t able to blog it at the time so I’m once again playing catch-up, lol! This was definitely a fun project – I’m totally smitten with this die set and can see lots more projects made with it!

I cut an acetate card base from Grafix Craft Plastic. Using the Vintage Truck Dies, I cut all the pieces from CutCardStock Basis 80# Natural, Basis Brown, Stardream Metallic Jupiter, Desert Storm and Bright Gold Foil cardstock, and several patterned papers from the Keep It Simple Clementine 12×12 Collection Pack. Like most projects with lots of pieces, the fun part is the assembly, and this one was no different! I added butterfly and sentiment stickers (from the sticker sheet in the Clementine Collection) to the assembled truck and adhered it to the card base. I adhered a truck outline die cut on the inside, cut from an additional paper in the Clementine Collection, so the SuperTape wasn’t visible through the acetate.

I die cut two additional truck outlines from Basis Natural, and adhered one to the inside and embellished it with a sentiment sticker from the sticker sheet in the Clementine Collection. I adhered the other one to the back side of the card so the SuperTape wasn’t visible through the acetate.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
