Rusty Pickup Truck for Father’s Day

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.

 

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

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.

Create a scene card with a rusty pickup truck for any occasion that calls for a masculine card.

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.

Rusty pickup truck cards are fun to make.

Cards with Pickup Trucks are Popular for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is the perfect occasion to make cards with pickup trucks.  I think we all struggle to come up with ideas for masculine cards.  I like to turn to my old faithful pick up truck die, whether in a snowy winter scene for Christmas, a summer beach scene or even a sunny country scene with a tree and a few flowers and birds.  For my project today I used the Rubbernecker Truck, Inside Scallop Nested Die, Grass, Winter Tree, Spring Leaves, Flower Stems, Tiny Flower Buds, Small Birds and Mixable Flower Stack 5107D.

Cards with pickup trucks are popular for Father's Day.  Come see how to make one of your own.

The Scene Base and Grass

  • Cut the card base and inside scallop layer using white cardstock and the background layer using green cardstock.
  • Apply strips of masking tape around the border of the scallop layer.
  • Use a large blender brush and Tumbled Glass ink to apply a blue sky background for the scene.
  • Cut two grass sections using green cardstock and cut them a second time using the scallop die to create the matching bottom and sides.
  • Attach the scene base to the green layer using ATG adhesive and then attach them to the card base using strips of mounting tape.

The Pickup Truck

  • Cut the truck sections using aqua, black and grey cardstock.
  • Secure the door by attaching it in place on the back using strips of double stick tape.
  • Attach the fender section to the truck base using a rolled up rope of double stick tape.  Note:  I use rolled up double stick tape instead of mounting tape when I only want a slight elevation of the image.
  • Attach the wheel sections together using glossy accents and attach them to the truck using glossy accents.
  • Finish the truck by attaching the tiny headlight, bumpers and door handle using glossy accents.

Cards with pickup trucks are on trend for Father's Day.  Come over to see how surrounded this truck with a pretty scene.

The Tree

  • Cut the winter tree using Kraft cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink to the tree.
  • Trim the top branches of the tree to create a smaller tree to fit in the scene.
  • Cut the leaves using green cardstock and form them slightly using the leaf tool and molding pad.
  • Attach the leaves to the branches using glossy accents.

The Flowers, Birds and Sun

  • Cut the birds, tiny flower buds and sun using yellow cardstock.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the flower stems.
  • Form the tiny flower buds using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the tiny flowers to the stems using glossy accents.
  • Use a mini applicator to attach Citrus ink to the bird bodies and color the beaks using a black marker.

Assemble the Pickup Truck Scene

  • Tuck the tree in behind the grass section and attach using rolled up double stick tape.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the flower stems in behind the grass sections.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the truck and attach it to the front grass section.
  • Use tiny pieces of mounting tape to attach the birds to the scene.
  • Finish by attaching the sun to the top corner of the scene using mounting tape.  Note: I was inspired by my friend, Julie Warner to use the flower for a sun.  For larger scenes I like to use the Rubbernecker sun from the Sun Moon set. 

Father's Day is the perfect occasion to make cards with pickup trucks.  Come over to see how I made this pretty scene.

  • Create the cloudy background using Tumbled Glass ink, a cloud stencil and a large blender brush. 
  • Use green cardstock to cut two grass sections.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back grass section and attach it to the card base.

Christmas Cards With Pickup Trucks ARE A Thing!

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.

Sending Christmas cards with pickup trucks this year? Click through for some great inspiration!

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.

  • 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

Old Rusty Truck Card

Today I’m sharing an old rusty truck card made using the new Rubbernecker Stamps Old Flatbed Truck paired with the Small Birds and framed using the Nested Deckle Rectangle and Nested Rectangle sets.  The tree trunk was stamped using the Fall Tree #2 and the tree top and flowers in the grass were made using the mini fern stamp from the Kittie Kits Outdoor Master.  I used the Life Changing Blender Brushes to add a base of color for the sky and grass area.  I made this card for the Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It Challenge to create a card with an image of something that uses gasoline.

Come see how I made this old rusty truck card.

The Scene Base

  • Apply Shabby Shutters ink to the ground and Tumbled Glass ink to the sky area using blender brushes.
  • Secure the tree trunk stamp and cardstock in the MISTI.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the stamp and stamp on the cardstock.
  • Fill in the trunk and branches using Vintage Photo ink to the trunk and branches using a damp brush.
  • Fill in the tree top using Peeled Paint ink and a blender brush.
  • Stamp the mini fern image multiple times using Peeled Paint ink to fill in and add texture.
  • Apply different colors of flowers to the grass area using the mini fern stamp and Rusty Hinge, Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade ink. 

The Frame

  • Cut the white deckle layer using the largest die from the set.
  • Line up the rectangle die on the white layer and run through the machine to cut the frame opening.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.

Come see how I made this colorful old rusty truck card.

The Rusty Truck

  • Cut the truck body using green cardstock, the truck bed rails using woodgrain cardstock and the truck bed and tires using black cardstock.
  • Apply Rusty Hinge ink to the truck body and wheels using a mini applicator.
  • Attach the fender to the truck body using a strip of rolled up double stick tape.
  • Use double stick tape to secure the door in place.
  • Attach the truck bed and rails to the truck using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the tires and attach them to the truck.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the truck and attach it to the card base.

The Birds

  • Use red cardstock to cut the small birds.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of each bird and attach them to the card base and frame to finish the scene.

Come see how I made this fun old rusty truck card.

I think this old rusty truck card will be a perfect masculine card for a birthday or other special occasion.  It is always a little more difficult to come up with card ideas for men.  Here’s a link to truck cards I have posted on my blog.  Here is a link to truck cards on Pinterest if you would like more inspiration.  I appreciate you coming by and I hope you have a great upcoming weekend.
