Two cute truck cards with laser printed special occasions greetings

I love this little truck die cut which my sister cut for me when she visited earlier this year!!  I made up some kits for my January card class and am making up a few kits for my stash.  These have fun greetings!!   I mounted some blue decorative papers to the black card fronts to simulate a sky and then overlapped a torn piece of green decorative paper below that to simulate roadside greenery leaving a strip of black at the bottom.  I added white strips to the black strip to simulate pavement.  I coloured in my little truck - black for the tires and glitter pen for the headlights, windshield, bumper, hubcaps and door handle.  I added balloons to each of them in a different way.  For the one on the left, I printed a balloon bouquet, fussy cut it and mounted it over the back of the truck.  For the one on the right, I added balloon punchies and used a fine tip black marker to draw in the strings.  I mounted the trucks over the ends of the balloons and then added my fussy cut laser printed greetings to make them look like they are being flown from the back of the truck cab.  I have a few more so there will at least a few more that will appear in a bit.  


A cute bear die cut makes a beary special card

This bear die cut (SX) is so conducive to making these special cards!!  I created kits for my March class and am just getting to making up a few kits for my card stash. 
This one features a lavender bear die cut with its details watercoloured in pink.  I added a little white heart punchie to his middle and positioned some black cardstock behind his eyes and nose to get them to show up nicely.  I used decorative paper that features a rainbow as a background which works perfectly.  I trimmed the laser printed greeting on the bottom edge with decorative scissors and glued it to bottom of my card front. I border punched a piece of coordinating pink cardstock and cut a slot on every second set of holes in which I threaded through a white satin ribbon adhering the ends to the back with double sided tape.  I positioned this embellishment over the top edge of the greeting using double sided tape to keep it in place.  I added the bear tucking one of his legs behind to border to give the card a bit of depth.
