January Cardmaking - a cute little truck filled with fun!!
So for my first card I started with a light gray card and glued on a piece of swirly blue paper to create a sky. I added a torn white strip to simulate a snowbank because I was creating a Christmas card. I added some stippling on the bottom and a bit of brown watercolour to simulate a winter road. I chose a little red truck and coloured in the tires with black marker and the windshield, headlight and hubcaps using a clear glitter pen. I did add a bit of colour to the fenders on the back and front to add a bit of definition and depth. I used double sided tape to adhere it to the front of my card leaving the back without glue so I could add my little tree. I used the stipple stamp with green ink on the tree before tucking it in the back of the truck. I added a layered greeting - laser printed words punched with the Word Window punch (SU) layered onto a red Modern Label punchie. I added it to my card using 3D foam tape.
I am look forward to adding more fun stuff to the back of the other trucks!!
Here are some of the trucks filled with hearts!!!! I have left off the greetings so that they can be customized for the recipients!! The hearts are die cuts in two sizes (CB) which used up a few scraps from my red scrap buckets. I like that the hearts are all different colours!!!
