Loads of Love Valentine Card

I love the little truck in this set of Stampin' Up stamps.  The set includes several different stamps for things to put in the back of the truck so it can be used for a lot of different occasions.

This card gave me an opportunity to use my latest Tim Holt purchase, Vintage Lace dies.  I've used all my border punches so much that I'm tired of seeing them! lol!  I figured the $20 I paid for these dies was cheaper than picking up three new border punches. ***I can always justify a new toy if I really want it!***

These dies are to be used with a Sizzix machine because they're 12" long.  I only have a Cuttlebug, which is fine for doing cards so I had to play around with the cutting sandwich to get it to cut cleanly.

Cute, cute card Linda! I love this set too, but don't own it...yet that is. lol You can get the long plates to use in the cuttlebug Linda, I got them for mine on line. I have the TH rosette makers and use the long plates. They come in A,B,C plates just like the originals.
