Good Monday morning. I have a die cut truck and flower scene card to share with you today. You don’t think the new Rubbernecker Stamps Truck die is only for Christmas projects do you? I couldn’t wait to use it in a spring/summer scene with a load of flowers. I had fun pairing the truck with the Winter Tree, Tiny Leaves, Deckle Hills, Leaf Group, Tiny Flower Buds, Small Birds, Sun Moon and framed using the Rectangle Combo.
Assembling The Truck
- Cut the Truck out using blue cardstock.
- Cut the wheels using black cardstock and the trails using Kraft cardstock.
- Apply Vintage Photo to the truck rails using a mini applicator.
- Cut the hubcaps, headlights and bumpers using gray cardstock.
- Use a mini applicator to apply light touches of Rusty Hinge ink to the body of the truck to add the appearance of age.
- Assemble the wheel and hubcaps using glossy accents and attach them to the truck base using glossy accents.
- 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.
- Cut the tree using Kraft cardstock.
- Apply Vintage Photo ink using the direct to paper technique and then smooth out the ink using a wet baby wipe.
- Cut the leaves using green cardstock.
- Apply small dots of glossy accents to the branches and attach the leaves until the tree is filled.
The Foliage and Flowers
- Cut four sections of the Leaf Group using green cardstock.
- Cut the branches apart to use to create the foliage for the truck and the scene.
- Attach several branches together and attach them to the back of the truck using glossy accents.
- Cut a few single leaves and attach them to the outside of the truck rails using glossy accents.
- Cut Tiny Flower Buds using purple and apricot cardstock and place them face up on the molding pad.
- Use a small tipped stylus to form the leaves.
- Attach the flowers to the foliage on the truck using glossy accents.
- Attach the flowers to several of the small branch sections using glossy accents and set aside.
The Frame, Ground Layers, Sun and Birds
- Cut the frame using purple cardstock and attach the two largest sections together using double stick tape.
- Cut the ground sections using green cardstock.
- Cut the sun using bright yellow cardstock.
- Cut the birds using the blue cardstock and color the beaks using a black Copic marker.
The Frame and Grass
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame.
- Attach the two grass sections to the back of the frame.
- Apply double stick tape to the grass sections.
- Attach the frame and grass to the white card base.
Complete the Die Cut Truck and Flower Scene
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the tree trunk and a few tiny squares of mounting tape to the back of a few leaves.
- Tuck the tree in behind the grass sections and attach to the card base.
- Attach pieces of mounting tape to the back of the truck and tuck it in behind the grass section and attach to the base.
- Cut the sun to create a square corner on one side, apply mounting tape, tuck it under the frame and attach to the card base.
- Tuck the flower branches in behind the grass sections using glossy accents.
- Attach the birds in the scene with tiny pieces of mounting tape.
- Finish by applying sparkle to the sun and flowers using Spectrum Noir clear overlay pen.

Oh Kittie the trucks just keep getting better and better. I guess I should get my truck out and get busy with some cute truck cards. Im already thinking spring, as you know we live 45 minutes apart and it’s supposed to be up to 85 by the end of the week and then another cold front but nothing to bad, just in the 60’s in the day and 40’s at night!!! Typical Florida. So I think flowers year round. Thanks for another great truck card!!!
Kittie, you put SO MUCH WORK into this & it SHOWS!!! I LOVE how you’ve rusted up the truck! It looks SO NATURAL! LOVE ALL of the flowers & the Spring scene! A SUPER JOB on your card, Kittie!!!! 😉 (My husband likes the rusted truck too! 😉 )
