Hey There, Hay There!
Hey y’all! Or is it Hay y’all??? Today, I’m bringing you all a fall thank you card. Do we ever have enough thank you cards? And I love fall…I love the colors, I love FOOTBALL, you name it, I love everything about fall. The minute I saw the Darice Build A Truck Die Set, I knew I had to have it! I have so many ideas for this die set! And then, adding in the Maymay Made It Bushel and A Peck and Howdy Pumpkin stamp sets jut set it off. Oh…and get those scissors out. There’s a bit of fussy cutting in this project. You know, I have a fancy electric die cutting machine that I could probably trace and cut these images…but in the time I set up that file, I can have them cut out with my Cutter Bee Scissors. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
For this card I used:
· Kraft Card Mat
· Small scrap of silver foil cardstock (or in my case, since I didn’t have any, I glued a small piece of aluminum foil to a small piece of white cardstock) for the wheels of the truck.
· Glad Press’n Seal
1. Using my die cut machine, I cut the truck pieces from the teal colored cardstock. I then cut the tires from the black cardstock scrap, the wheels from my “diy” silver foil cardstock, and the window from a small scrap of white cardstock.
2. I inked the edges of the truck pieces and the window with the Vintage Photo ink and my blending tool.
3. I assembled the truck and added Scotch Double-Sided Foam Mounting Tape to the fenders of my truck to give the truck some great dimension.
4. I then stamped the pumpkins and the scarecrow from the Howdy Pumpkin & Bushel and a Peck stamp set. I also stamped the large hay bale from the Bushel and a Peck stamp set but ended up not using it. I used my Mini Misti, which is totally not necessary. I just wanted to make sure I got a really good stamped image. Side Note on the Mini Misti: I have arthritis in my wrists and have a difficult time sometimes getting a good impression, even with the Mini Misti. I purchased a small furniture foot at my local hardware store and a package of felt furniture gliders. I glued one of the felt furniture gliders on the bottom of the furniture foot to make a tool that I can easily slide over the door of the Mini Misti to get more even pressure when I’m stamping a lot of images or a large solid image. You can see me use it in the photo.
5. I colored them with the alcohol markers but they can be colored with the coloring medium of your choice. I fussy cut the images.
6. I arranged the truck on the kraft colored card mat that measures 3 ½ x 4 ¾ cut from Gina Marie Stitched Rectangle Die. Once I got all of my images like I wanted them, I moved the truck out of the way and used Glad Press’n Seal to pick up all of my little images so they would stay arranged like I wanted them. I applied the glue to the images and then put them back onto the kraft card mat. Then, I added the truck on top. I also added a pumpkin to the hood of the truck and popped that pumpkin up on Scotch Double-Sided Foam Mounting Tape.
7. I layered the 3 ½ x 4 ¾ kraft card mat onto a teal card mat die cut from the largest rectangle die from the Gina Marie Stitched Rectangle Die Set. It measures approximately 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. Then I layered both of those onto the A2 kraft card base.
8. I stamped the greeting “Hey there” from the Howdy Pumpkin stamp set with Versa Fine Clair Acorn ink.
9. I knew I wanted this to be a thank you card so I added the sentiment “thank ya” from the Howdy Pumpkin stamp set to the inside of my card. I also stamped a pumpkin on the bottom left corner and a leaf on the top right corner to add extra interest to the inside of the card.
