You Lift Me Up Card

This month on the Penguin Palace Stamps challenge blog, there's a sketch challenge. I recently contacted Sharon, the owner of PP Stamps about creating a digital stamp with a construction theme after seeing her darling clear stamps and dies in the Love You Tons set, and within a week, there was a wonderful digital set on the PP Stamps website called You Lift Me Up that includes great construction-themed sentiments and images that can stand alone or work well with the Love You Tons set as add-ons. My son is apprenticing to become a crane operator, so I'm delighted Sharon included a crane in the digital set! Thanks, Sharon!

For this card, I created an A2 card base and embossed it using a sun ray embossing folder. Then I did a print and cut of the sentiment strip and images. I colored the sentiment strip and the other digis with Ohuhu alcohol markers. I cut out a circle to follow the sketch and stamped a dirt road on it using a SU! stamp from the retired Potted Geranium set. Then I popped up my crane operator waving from his crane with foam tape for dimension.
