New Challenge Site-Enjoy the Ride

Hi all and welcome to my blog. I want to tell you about a new challenge blog I am designing for: Creative Cutting Challenge.What makes this challenge blog so different is that the challenge is to use SVG cuts. It's sponsored by Creative Pointe it is a twice a month SVG cut file challenge blog  Each submission must have at least one SVG file (from any source) used in the project. Come check it out! and if you have the software to cut SVGs then I hope you'll join in on the challenges.
This is my design for today. My grandson's birthday is at the end of the month and this set of SVGs was perfect for his birthday card:
The SVG cuts came from: Creative Pointe "Off Road Set"

The one thing I love about SCAL is that everything is there in one project. I brought everything into the program and built my card exactly as I had imagine it would look but now I can have a visual to it.
Each piece is then put on it's separate color page to be cut from that particular color. I had this all put together in about 2 hours, I'm a bit rusty on using the program, lol!

I popped up the rider to give the card some dimension as shown in the photo. The recipe for the card: This card is 4.5" X 6.25". The background is attached to gray cardstock (cardbase) it look like dirt to me and it is from the DCWV Stack 7 pack. The tire tread and rider from Creative Pointe's off road set were cut out of black cardstock scraps and the gray came from DCWV Metallic stack. The letters were cut from a scrap piece of red cardstock I used the Impact font from SCAL. The is the first in awhile that I have used SCAL and look forward to using it more. All cuts on the card was done with SCAL v2.
Have a fantastic day and if you have access to cut SVG's I hope you will play along and join the challenge. Happy Craftin'
