Cruisin' Birthday



This is a card that I made for my nephew who turned 10!!! I thought the truck would make a fun card for him!

I used the Loads of Love stamp set along with the Punch Pals set to add the presents in the back of the truck. The saying was from the retired It's Your Birthday set. I started with chocolate chip, baja breeze, whisper white and a bit of kiwi kiss card stock. I ran the baja breeze piece through the Cuttlebug's Swiss dots embossing folder. I also used Spellbinders Nestabilites to create the ovals for the main image. I embossed the edges of the ovals too! I stamped the truck and the saying in chocolate chip. I colored the truck in with baja breeze ink, the ground with kiwi kiss ink, and a blender pen. I used a gel pen (Thanks again Beverly!!!) for the bumper and dazzling diamonds for the wheels!!! I stamped the presents and cut them out for the back of the truck. I wrapped chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon around the center and added my brads to the corners. I had already cut out a slot for the round tab. For the tab part I just stamped the saying and added the tab punched from the round tab punch! Oh yeah and I added the brads again!!!



Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
