I love making cards with a vintage truck snow scene using a truck as the main focus of the scene and a little cabin in the distance. I had a wonderful time using images from the Rubbernecker Kittie Kits sets. I used images from the Outdoor Master, Fall Master and Moose. Did you know that Rubbernecker made die sets that coordinate with the Kittie Kits. I’ll have them all linked below if you want to check them out.
I secured the stamps and white cardstock in my MISTI and stamped all the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used my heat gun to set the ink for coloring. The truck, cabin and fence sections were die cut and colored using using Distress Inks, a water brush and mini applicators. The white embossing paste was applied to the truck and cabin using a Sofft spatula. The background cardstock layer was secured in my MISTI and I stamped the evergreen trees all the way across the page to create the backdrop for the scene. I used an ink blending tool to apply the blue sky area over the trees. The scene layer was attached to the card base using ATG adhesive. Falling snow was added to the scene and images using a white gel pen.
I used deckle scissors to hand cut the snow layers. I like the uneven edge for the ground because it looks so much more natural. I used a Bendi Frame because it creates a soft dimensional curve to the frame. I used a die from the Matting Basics B set to cut the frame opening on a piece of 5 5/8″ x 4 3/8″ cardstock. The frame needed to be an extra 1/8″ in width to create the bend when attached to the base. The front snow layer was attached to the back of the frame using ATG adhesive. Thin strips of mounting tape were attached to the outer edge on both sides of the frame. I first removed the backing off the left side of the frame and carefully attached it to the card front. I removed the backing off the right side and carefully allowed the frame to bend as I attached to the edge of the card front. I hope you can see that the 1/8″ of width cased the frame to bend out in the frame center about 1/4″ to 1/2″.
The fence sections were attached on both sides of the card base using mounting tape. The cabin was tucked in behind the second snow layer and attached with mounting tape. The truck was gently curved with my fingers so it would sit correctly on the curve of the frame and attached with 1/2″ double stick tape.
It is so cold and snowy all over the country as a result I thought this would make a perfect masculine card for a winter birthday or thank you. Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you enjoyed my Vintage Truck Snow Scene.
