I recently purchased a die cutting machine (Gemini Junior) and ordered this fun die cutting set from Spellbinders.  This card is for my new son-in-law.  He drives a pick-up truck, so I thought this would be perfect for him.

I started by die cutting a kraft card base (Sugar Pea Design Builder).  I used Nuvo Hot Cholcolate embossing powder for the sentiment (Ranger Letter It Birthday).  Next, I cut out all the truck pieces using Bohemia Blue Bird \”All Boy\” card stock (coordinating double sided paper).   I enjoyed the die cutting and paper selection.  I wanted dimension so I used foam tape for the truck body and then an additional layer of foam tape for the license plate and bumper.  I tucked in a few gifts die cut from scrap paper I had left over.  The ribbons on two of the packages are light green but they did not photograph well.

I am entering this card in:
Cardz 4 Guyz \”To Die for Challenge\”  I lost track of how many dies I used on this card, but I think my son-in-law will really like the card.

 Happy Little Stampers \”Die\” Challenge  I\’ve never made a card with so many dies before, it was kind of like doing a fun puzzle.

The Male Room \”Do It Yourself Challenge\”  This card is for my son-in-law. He drives a pickup and for Christmas he asked for tools so he could do maintenance and repairs himself.  So we got him a variety of DIY tools.

Brown Sugar Transportation Challenge – A pick-up is my husband\’s primary mode of transportation.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge  I think this little pick-up is as \”cute\” as can be!

Thanks for stopping by!  I truly hope to see your masculine creation on the Watercooler Website.
