Farm Truck Christmas

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Friday edition of the Blog. 

The new release of Artic Animal dies are in the online store. There are 13 new designs in this release and they are currently on sale. You can get these super cute dies at 25% off for a limited time. These new dies are so versatile, and can be used for a variety of occasions. 

The baby Artic animals would make a cute congratulations card, baby shower invitations, a welcome new baby card, a child's birthday card or cards for our animal loving friends. The other dies are great for winter birthdays, thinking of you, thank you's for a special Christmas gift. 

Today, I am featuring the Farm Truck with Tree die. It's part of the Christmas Part 2 collection. I actually do a combo of religious and whimsical for my Christmas cards. Today, for your viewing pleasure I am going whimsical. My design is on the clean and simple side because I wanted the die to be the center focus on the card. 

I bought some new designer papers this year for Christmas cards and I leaned towards ones with backgrounds already completed. That way all I have to do is add my die cuts and my card is complete. This one is a Christmas Tree lot with a nightime sky, pine trees and the lights strung across. It was just the perfect setting for the truck.

Card Base: 4 1/2" x 5 3/4"
White Layering Panel:  4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer Paper Panel: 4 1/8" x  5 3/8"

I cut my truck using red cardstock for the body, black cardstock for the wheels with a tocuh of silver and brown cardstock for the wood panels. I used white cardstock and cut a small slope and added chunky glitter to the top. My Merry Christmas sentiment is from the Merry Christmas w/Friends die. 

To finish off this card I added a couple of enamel dots on the snowy slope, just for added interest. 
That's it for me for this week. I hope all your Christmas tasks are getting accomplished. I am wrapping gifts today and then tomorrow I will be making candy and a limited selection of cookies. Merry Christmas to you all and I will see you next Saturday.

Wonderful card Mary. And using the patterned paper is a great way to make beautiful but quick cards. A necessity this time of year!
