Rubbernecker Black Friday 2019

Believe it or not, the resurgence in Farmhouse Style has caused a demand for Christmas cards with pickup trucks. Well, I already LOVE a cute little pickup truck, and although I’ve shared many cards with it in the past I just couldn’t resist making another one to share with you today.  The Christmas tree has been secured in the back of the truck and they are heading home to a warm fire, hot cocoa and creating family memories.  

For this project I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Truck, Evergreen Trees, Deckle Hills, Small Birds, Tiny Leaves, 3 Pine Trees and Splatter Background.

The Snowy Tree Background

  • Stamp the front row of trees using Versafine Clair Shady Lane ink.  Note:  I am in love with the Versafine Clair inks.  They provide a crisp stamped image every time.
  • Create the second tree row by stamping off the image once on scrap paper before stamping on the scene base.  Repeat this step to complete the second row.
  • Heat dry the ink on the whole scene base with the heat gun to prepare for stamping the falling snow and to avoid having embossing powder sticking to it.
  • Apply white pigment ink to the Splatter Background and stamp it on the scene.
  • Sprinkle white embossing powder over the scene, shake off excess and heat using the heat gun.  Note:  Sometimes it’s necessary to turn the card base face down and strike a few times on the back to remove excess powder.

The Truck  and Holly Leaves

  • Cut the truck parts using red and black cardstock.
  • Stamp the Splatter Background on the truck parts with white pigment ink and emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Attach the fenders to the truck using rolled strips of double stick tape.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the wheel sections together and attach them to truck base using glossy accents.
  • Cut tiny leaves using green cardstock and attach to the truck using glossy accents.
  • Punch out 1/16″ red circles, attach to the holly leaves using glossy accents and add sparkle to them using red stickles.

The Christmas Tree, Snow Layers and Cardinals

  • Use white cardstock to cut an evergreen tree. 
  • Apply Versafine Clair Shady Lane ink to the tree stamp and stamp it on the die cut tree.
  • Heat dry the ink on the tree and stamp the Splatter Background image on the tree using white pigment ink and emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Cut two snow layers using white cardstock.
  • Use red cardstock to cut the cardinals and color their beaks using a black Copic marker.

Assemble the Card

  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back snow layer and attach to the card base.
  • Attach strips of mounting tape to the back of the front snow layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Secure the Christmas tree in the back of the truck using double stick tape.
  • Use strips of mounting tape to attach the truck to the card base.
  • Finish the scene by apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the cardinals and attach them to the card base.
