Good Thursday morning. I have a fun die cut truck and Christmas trees card to share with you today. I used the new Rubbernecker Stamps Truck, Deckle Hills, Pine Tree Forest, Small Birds and Tiny Leaves.
Assembling The Truck
- Cut the Truck out using red cardstock.
- Cut the wheels and truck rails using black cardstock.
- Cut the hubcaps, headlights and bumpers using gray cardstock.
- Assemble the wheel and hubcaps using glossy accents and attach them to the truck base using glossy accents.
- Use a mini applicator to apply light touches of Fired Brick ink to the top portion of the fender section and around the door to add a touch of shading.
- Apply rolled glue dots to several spots on the back of the fender and attach it to the truck base.
- Attach the bumpers, headlights and truck rails to the truck using glossy accents.
Deckle Hill Layers and Trees
- Cut two sections of the Pine Tree Forest using green cardstock.
- Cut three Deckle Hills using white cardstock.
- Cut one of the Pine Tree sections apart and tuck several trees in behind the truck rails and attach with glossy accents.
- Attach two of the Deckle Hills to the to the blue card base using double stick tape.
- Attach the front Deckle Hill to the card base using strips of mounting tape.
- Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the Pine Tree Forest and tuck it in behind the snow layer.
Complete The Scene
- Attach the truck to the card base using pieces of mounting tape.
- Cut the small bird using red cardstock, color it’s beak with a black marker and attach it in the scene with a small piece of mounting tape.
- Cut tiny leaves using green cardstock, form them with the leaf tool and molding pad and attach to the truck door using glossy accents.
- Tie a tiny red bow using thin red ribbon. I get my thin bolts of ribbon at Michaels.
- Type the Tree Farm sign with your computer and print it. Attach the printed paper to a piece of white cardstock using double stick tape and cut it out using deckle scissors. I used the smallest font possible.
- Attach the sign to the truck rails using double stick tape.
- Finish the scene by applying small dots of snow using a tiny tipped brush and white Gesso. I didn’t want to overwhelm the scene with falling snow but thought it would be fun to have it showing on the truck, trees and ground layers.
I loved making this die cut truck and Christmas trees card. The Pine Tree Forest trees are the perfect size to fit with the truck and they were very easy to cut apart to use in the truck bed. This fun scene is reminiscent of Christmas past. Thanks for coming by and I hope you enjoyed seeing my project. Have a great day.
