Truck of Gifts

Hello there!  Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Today I'm sharing a card with you created with some great Stampendous® Stamps!  This card uses Truck of Gifts for the main image and  Holly Bird Perfectly Clear Stamps™ and Christmas Charms Perfectly Clear Stamps™ on the tag.  If you've gone shopping on "Black Friday" you may have brought home your own truck of gifts!  For me, I'm staying home and as far away from the mall as possible!  So, here's my card:

I love this old truck!  Definitely one of my favorite stamps for creating masculine Christmas cards.  Here's what I did to create this card:

Stamp image, color as desired and trim closely around edge
Create card base from Bazzill
Trim patterned background paper
Trim mat for image
Create bow and adhere to lower portion of patterned paper
Adhere patterned paper to card base with bow attached
Adhere image to mat and then adhere matted image to card
Punch out tag and stamp as shown
Using glue, adhere glitter to tree branches as shown
Tie tag around ribbon and, using a foam mounting square, attach to the card

These are the products I used:

Stampendous® Truck of Gifts
Stampendous® Holly Bird Perfectly Clear Stamps™
