CARD DETAILS

The dies that I’m using for my cards today are the Spellbinders October Large Die of the Month set. This is my favorite die of all of their large die sets ever released, it’s a super versatile die. The main die is a back of a pick up truck, you have a ton of different inserts that go into the truck and make it work for all 4 seasons. There’s 25 pieces in this set in total and believe me when I say you won’t want to put this set down once you start using it. The options for decorating this truck are just endless.

I die-cut all of the parts and pieces for this card out of colored cardstock and some patterned paper (for the bumper part). This die comes with sentiments, there’s words that you can die-cut and put on the back of the truck like a license plate, but I wanted to replace that with stamping. So I white heat embossed a label from Hero Arts Holiday Labels set.

Next, I used red and green inks and ink blended the edges of the die cuts to make them pop. Using glue (and foam squares) I assembled my truck. I also die-cut and decorated little gifts to go in the back of the truck, I used a white pen to add diagonal stripe and polka dot pattern detail to the gift packages (you can use pattern paper for this, too).

I also die-cut a Santa’s hat from another die set from my stash and used it to dress up my truck.

To create a background I ink blended light and dark blue inks onto a blue cardstock panel and heat embossed some additional labels from Hero Arts. I embossed them in clear embossing powder for a tone on tone look.

    1. This card is FANTASTIC! I love everything about it! Thanks so much for show us how to accomplish this Adorable truck!.
      I wish I could find a WHITE pen that works. Mine never works as good as the one you use. What brand is your favorite? You never seem to have “skipping” issues, and half the time the ink won’t work, or flow out of the pen? IF there is a trick you use could you talk about it in your videos please? Thanks in advance. Hugs

    1. Darling Christmas card, love that truck! Fill truck bed with a variety of items to cover any occasion…awesome die set!

    1. I absolutely love this die set and you did a fabulous job showing it off. I love that dark navy background with the bright red. The gold glitter bows are a nice finishing touch. It all feels very festive!

    1. Fantastic card, thanks for sharing! I subscribed, seems like great value and I love the option to skip if necessary in the future. Thanks, Yana!
