Hello and welcome to the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop for August. This month the theme is Let's Hear it for the Boys! I always need more masculine cards. So I love an opportunity to make them for a blog hop. The Trucking along Bundle is perfect for so many occasions including masculine birthdays. I have created a beach themed card this time. A cute truck with some fun summer items in the back. I am thinking of summer now actually as our winter weather has been so warm you would swear summer will be next week.
I have used a Basic White card base and let the Coastal Cabana Designer Series Paper create the summer feel. I love Castal Cabana and could imagine a truck, or as we say in Australia, a Ute in this colour. I can imagine it parked by the ocean and someone checking out the surf.
I have used one of the circle punches to die cut the Basic White layer and Die cut a slightly larger circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. Glue both together, then glue to the card centre. The truck and Palm tree etc is stamped in Memento™ Tuxedo Black ink. Then coloured in using the colours below. Punch out the truck and fussy cut the palm tree etc. I have stamped the lines on the Vellum layer in Crumb Cake ink before adhering the Truck and palm tree etc with Dimensionals.
The sentiment is from the Something Fancy Bundle. I have heat embossed the sentiment in White Embossing Powder on Basic Black card stock before adhering using Dimensionals. I have kept this card very simple as I think the truck and its contents are just the cutest!
