No Road is too Long — Monday Montage #61

Monday Montage Banner -- October

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of ten stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is to click on the links at the bottom of each post.

I am trying to get a little ahead on my Valentine’s Day cards.  My older daughter’s birthday is on that day and my son’s birthday is two days later.  So it’s a busy week in our house!  I don’t want Valentine’s Day to get lost in the shuffle, so I need to do some prep ahead of time.

I decided to make a Valentine’s card for my husband using the Beautiful Ride stamp set.  I love this cute little car!  My next-door neighbors in the small town where I grew up had VW bugs, which they used as delivery vehicles for their pharmacy store.  Yes, pharmacies used to deliver your prescriptions to your home!  Since their family had several of these fun cars, there seemed to always be at least one parked in their driveway.  Now, whenever I see a VW bug on the road, I always think of their sweet family.

Sorry for the trip down memory lane!  I decided to use a sheet of the Going Places dsp.  Not only does it have some prints which are perfect for masculine cards, but it has some sheets that look like maps, which I thought would pair perfectly with the car.

Good Company Love BugI crumpled up the piece of dsp and then flattened it out before adhering it to the card base.  I then stamped the image on some Watercolor Paper and colored it with an Aqua Painter and Pool Party, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Real Red, and So Saffron inks.

The sentiment was embossed with black embossing powder on Real Red card stock.  I added a little washi tape, Silver Metallic Thread, Silver Foil Sheet (punched with the Banner Punch), and staples.

Good Company Love Bug Close UpThis was a pretty quick card to make, and it was fun to color.

You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog.  I always love seeing what she makes!  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can jump back to Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing!
