I absolutely love these metal dies! Living in Texas, you see a lot of trucks, and I think the older ones are so photogenic, so to speak…
The truck die reminds me of a truck that I like to take photos of, on, in… here is an example:
This photo is from a few years ago. Isn’t the truck, my girls, and my baby bump cute?
Back to the cards…
I used colored cardstock, silver cardstock, glitter paper, and pattern paper to die cut the different elements of my card. Before I glued everything together, I used distress inks to age the truck, and a few Copic markers to add just a little bit of shading.
For the Christmas card, I used distress inks to create a chilly, early morning background. I added some snow flurries using white ink. I hand cut a snow bank, and added another sentiment. Then, I attached the entire thing to a white card base, added red & white twine, and called it done. I love how this card turned out!!!
For the Fall card, I used pattern paper and green cardstock for my background. I used the same sentiment as the Christmas card. I mounted it all with foam adhesive to a craft colored card base, added a string orange and white twine, and I was done. I really like how the plaid paper really gives the card a farm/country look.
This die kit is awesome! You could make so many different cards with it, because you get so many different pieces! These would make perfect masculine cards too.
I really love how these 2 cards turned out! Don’t forget to check out the Spellbinders shop for more goodies and inspiration!
