Super Truck, Super Dad

I'm super excited to share this card with you ! Yesterday I showed you the Poker card made for my youngest daughter to give her Dad. Today is the card my oldest will be giving him. She instantly fell in love with this big truck on the Father's Day cartridge. Mr. wonderful drives a big truck with a lift kit and its so tall my short little legs can barely get me in the truck...its quite comical actually! Well he really loves his truck,  I think this card will be a hit!

This easel card was cut at 5.5"x 11" scored at 5.5" and 7.5" the front panel is 5.5" its really easy to make and if you would like the tutorial on easel cards its  HERE on splitcoast stampers. I cut a little roadway to act as my easel "stopper" this is where the card will rest when opened. I modified the cut by leaving the negative tire cuts in place and taping them down, I personally like the look of the full black tire. I also cut little silver glitter paper pieces for the grill and the wheels, I also to a small piece of plastic { from my cricut cartridge packaging} and made a windshield. *grin* The clouds, sun and road are all from everyday paper dolls

You can just see the embossed design in the gray papers, but it adds that little extra "roughness" this card needs to balance out the glitter! *wink* All papers are from Bella blvd. with the exception of the sun and that is from my minds eye. All cardstocks are American crafts! {and are my favorite to use with the Cricut}

 Now I still need to make a card from ME!! LOL I better get busy!........Happy creating, see you soon~
