My project today is a rusty pickup truck scene that would be perfect for Father’s day – a birthday – or any occasion that calls for a masculine card. I have no idea how many pickup truck cards I have made over the years but it is one of my all-time favorite die cut images to use.  Back in January I posted the House and Truck Scene which is almost identical to my card today but looks quite different due to the different color combination.

For this card I used the Rubbernecker Inside Scallop Nested, Truck, Spooky House, Winter Tree, Spring Leaves, Grass, Small Birds and Puppies.

Create a scene card with a rusty pickup truck for Father's Day, birthday or any occasion that calls for a masculine card.

The Masked Sky Layer and Grass

  • Cut an A2 sized piece of white cardstock, score and fold to create the card base.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the scalloped layer.
  • Mask off the edges of the layer with masking tape. 
  • Create the blue sky background using a blender brush to apply Beachside ink
  • Use green cardstock to cut two grass sections.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back grass section and attach it to the sky layer.
  • Use double stick tape to attach the front grass section to the sky layer
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the scene base and attach it to the card base.

The House

  • Use woodgrain cardstock to cut the house base, door and window sections.
  • Trim off the wonky roof section of the right side of the house.  Note:  I trim off that section of roof when I want the house to look like an every day house instead of a haunted house for Halloween.
  • Apply Mocha and Pecan ink to the house sections using a mini applicator.
  • Attach the roof sections to the house using rolled up double stick tape and attach the door and windows using glossy accents.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the house, tuck it in behind the grass sections and attach to the card base.

The Tree

  • Use woodgrain cardstock to cut the tree.
  • Apply Pecan ink to the tree by swiping the ink pad directly over the cardstock.
  • Cut several Spring Leaves sections using green cardstock.
  • Form the leaves using a molding pad and leaf tool and attach them to the tree branches using glossy accents.
  • Apply rolled up double stick tape to the back trunk and branch sections of the tree.
  • Tuck the tree in behind the grass and attach it to the card base.

The Rusty Pickup Truck

  • Cut the truck using light blue cardstock and the wheels using black cardstock.
  • Apply Pumpkin and Pecan ink to the truck body and wheel covers using a mini applicator to create the rusty appearance.
  • Assemble the wheels and wheel covers using glossy accents and attach to the truck using glossy accents.
  • Attach the fenders to the truck using rolled up glue dots and the headlights, bumpers and door handle to the truck body using glossy accents
  • Tuck the truck between the grass sections and attach to the scene using pieces of mounting tape.

The Birds and Puppies

  • Cut the birds using red cardstock and the puppies using white cardstock.
  • Color the bird beaks using a black marker.
  • Color the markings on the puppies using light brown, dark brown and black markers.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach to the sky area and tree branches.
  • Apply mounting tape to the puppies and attach them to the scene.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing this scene built around the rusty pickup truck.  The truck is such a fun focal image and can be used in so many ways.
