Wonderful Wednesday Birthday card!

Welcome to another Wonderful Wednesday! Here is a card I made for my nieces husband's birthday-

Tray has a blue truck, so I had to make him a blue one too! Here's how it came together:

  1. Cut truck from Just Because Cards cartridge @ 9" to compensate for the image size being part of a larger layout (don't use real dial size or Fit to Length because you'll never get the layers to fit-believe me, I tried!). I used asphalt photo paper for the shadow, black cardstock, white cardstock, and blue paper to make the truck. I used white chalk to try and give it dimension, but you can hardly see it in the picture. I popped up the fenders for dimension. You may have noticed that I cut the side rail racks off the truck also! Don't be afraid to alter a die cut to fit your needs!
  2. Chalkboard Fonts was used for the letters cut at 1"out of red cardstock.
  3. Background is Wausau Shimmer paper embossed with the Cuttlebug diamond plate embossing folder.
I really love making masculine birthday cards. I wish there was a cartridge with just muscle cars!


  1. Perfect embossing folder for this custom truck card!
