The Trucking Along Bundle is back in stock and waiting for many awesome cards to be made with it! I have used it today, along with some other layering products for a cute Thank You card. We can never have enough of these around.
This card seems to have more individual products than I have used in quite a long time. But the star of the show is the Trucking Along little truck. I do love this truck! It is so versatile, not only in adding the Punch with it, but everything else that is in the stamp set. And please don’t laugh at me, or with me, but I did not use the punch! I stamped the truck and the sunflowers in the bed and was so happy how I perfectly placed the flowers. Then I realized when I punched the truck the flowers would be gone! DUH!!!! So out came the paper snips and it was an easy fussy cutting instead of punching.
The sentiment is not from the Trucking Along. Everything else is however. The sentiment is from the Wildlife Wonder stamp set. I just loved the mixed fonts of this one. The sentiment is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and the truck is stamped with Pretty Peacock. The color of the truck is a stamped off Pretty Peacock also. The splotchy color goes well with the “old farm truck” look I wanted.
The card was intended to be pretty simple. That did not last long at all though! But I did begin with a Thick Very Vanilla card stock for the base and then a thin layer of Pretty Peacock. The DSP at the bottom was another piece that just seemed to have the patina of the “old farm truck” and fit the sunflowers as well as the Pretty Peacock color. It is from the Oxidized Copper Specialty Designer Series Paper. The largest circle is also Pretty Peacock card stock for a bold backdrop of the truck.
There are several “extras” on this card. First is the background of Very Vanilla that has been embossed using the Twisted Rope Embossing Folder. It may be a little difficult to see in the photo. But this is a very detailed embossing folder. The next are the circles. These are cut using the Deckled Circles Dies. There are a lot of dies in this Die set. The ones I used are the 2nd and 7th going up from smallest.
The other products are more finishing touches to the card. First is the Natural Wavy Trim across the bottom of the DSP layer. With all of the various extras raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals, I wanted something to sort of ground that piece of DSP. The wavy trim fit perfectly. And to finish the card I went for more masculine bling! I used the Brushed Metallic Dots in a copper color. There are a couple of different metallic colors in this collection of dots.
