Swinging Rusty Truck


Card size: 6 x 6” when closed. Start with 6 x 9” white cardstock and 6 x 9” decorative paper. Mark 3” and 4 1/2" vertical light pencil lines on both pieces. On the decorative paper draw another light pencil line horizontally at 3”. Place the Eyelet Rectangle measuring 3 1/2 x 4 1/2" right in the center of the 2 intersecting lines on the decorative paper and cut, leave the die in place. Place the decorative paper on the cardstock and line up all edges. You should be able to see the vertical pencil lines through the die cut hole, now place the top cutting plate to the firsr vertical line (at 3”) and cut (the die will only cut where the cutting plate was). If you cut cutting side up normally, switch your plates around so that you can cut blade side down to see the lines you’ve drawn…it will be ok, don’t worry. Now turn the cardstock/paper 180 degrees and place the cutting plate at the other vertical line then cut. You should now have 2 partial cuts with 1 1/2" uncut between on the cardstock. Erase all lines on cardstock then score to the cut lines only, top and bottom at 3” and 4 1/2", fold mountain and valley on score lines (Do not score or fold through die cut). The card will now swing around when opened. For the decorative paper, trim 1/16” off top and bottom then trim off both sides of each vertical pencil line, erase horizontal pencil line. Glue each decorative paper piece to the corresponding cardstock panel (except rectangle cut out).

Die cut 1 of the sentiments printed on the decorative paper with a 2 x 3” rectangle then cut an Eyelet mat for it from white, sponge the edges with Jade. Sponge the edges of white swinging die cut with Jade as well. Glue the sentiment and mat to the right side of card (make sure it doesn’t show when the card is closed).

Stamp both truck scenes twice using black ink, die cut both full scenes and trucks, snowman and deer pieces from the second stamped set. Color all with alcohol inks or preferred coloring method (if using alcohol inks make sure to use Memento ink to stamp, if using water based coloring then stamp with Archival or VersaFine Claire). Glue the front of truck scene to the partial cut rectangle when card is closed. Glue the back of truck scene when card is open. Pop up all accessory pieces die cut. Use Dries white Adhesive and UltraFine Crystal Transparent glitter on the snowy parts especially trees and fence. Use glitter pens and paint pens on the little Christmas lights.

Stamp using VersaMark, the smallest poinsettias, emboss with white, die cut, shape then glue 2 together for each flower. Add Seas The Day Prills to the centers. Stamp leaves and sprays using Fern Green then sponge with Leaf Green, die cut, shape. Glue leaves and flowers to the top and bottom of the right side and to the top of the left side. Glitter flowers with sponge applied adhesive and Rajni's Crystal Clear, brush lacquer and shimmer mix to all the leaves.
