Rusty CHristmas truck 05189
For my Christmas card today, I went with more of a masculine theme. I love this old truck image and I thought it would look good in a rusty blue color. After coloring it with Copics, I stamped and fussy cut an extra wreath to add on top. The greeting was stamped underneath and I added some dimensional sparkly snow on the ground and stickles on the wreath. 

The two patterns of designer paper are actually one double sided piece I die cut using a curved border then flipped one side over. The cobalt blue layer was embossed using a snowflake frame and I used a white chalk marker to go over the raised areas. The snowflake was stamped with the blue ink and fussy cut. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

  1. Amazing job with coloring Julie! I love this truck stamp and the snow! Beautiful work!

  2. Couldn’t possibly send this card to a man, needs to be framed and adored, and keepsaked. (Actually hear than men toss their cards after removing the check!) Love each stoke and color you’ve applied. Rust never looked better!

  3. Oh Wow, I had to Pin this card to my “cards”. I have an old car that could use rusting up. You did such a fabulous job!

  4. The colors you used are so dramatic Julie! Great creation!

  5. Julie this card is stunning! Your coloring is just amazing and I love the fussy cut wreath.

    Your card is very beautiful – I just love this stamp – I actually have the very same one but I usually colour it green as it reminds me of a family truck we once had. Well done! EH
