Urban paper pack

One of my FAVORITE paper packs in the NEW Annual Inspirations Idea Book is the Urban collection.   J

If you remember, LAST month, I shared a card made with Urban....and I decided to continue sharing some more items from a swap I was recently apart of. ( I make multiples of 5 different creations & got others in return)

I thought I would share one of the cards I created today. (and I’ll share the rest of these items in the upcoming weeks here on my blog.  J )

The Urban paper pack speaks "BOY" to me....when you look at it first glance, so that's what I was thinking when I created this card.  I pulled out the NEW “Loads of Fun” stamp set to add to the "boy" theme of this card. 

I went to our handy-dandy Wishes How-to-book for a card sketch design and used pattern #25 from volume 2 to create this one.  

Take a peek....

This card was quite "easy" the Urban paper is what showcases here.  I LOVE the woodgrain paper design in this paper collection!!

Also - TAKE NOTE - the yellow & blue papers....these come from our Paper Fundamentals collection!  I LOVE how you can incorporate these "glossy on one side, patterned on the other" papers for added depth & texture to ANY project you are creating!

I stamped the bulldozer twice...once in Saffron & the second time in Slate so I could have grey wheels.  For the center of the wheels, I used our Artisan Studs.

I also was happy with the results of adding BLUE shimmer trim!!!  I haven't used the blue shimmer that often, and was excited to use it & that it looked great on this card! 

This cluster of goodies, came from our NEW Urban Complements!!!  I ADORE the way these Complements come...My fellow consultant Jen, took a picture of all that's included in this collection. 

Take a look at ALL these goodies....

There are SO MANY pieces included in these $5.95 collections, you'll want to make sure you have EACH set of Complements that coordinate with EACH paper collection you purchase!!  J

I also added some of our NEW Enamel & Glitter Blue dots to coordinate with that sparkly blue shimmer trim too.  
I think that’s all for now….please come back and join me again AND if you’d like to create your OWN bulldozer card – here is the list of items I used below!  Happy Crafting!! J

  1. Perfectly detailed card, and I do love that shimmer trim!

  2. What a great card Krista. I am so glad I have a little grandson who would just adore this card. Guess this is another stamp set on my "should have" list.

  3. I love the masculine look of this bulldozer card. The selection of papers and embellishments really complement the card. Wonderful car, Krista! Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Great card - I like how you used the Urban and Fundamental papers together with the blue shimmer trim!
