Hi all and welcome to sketch #601 from the team at Freshly Made Sketches. Our sketch hostess this week is Linda Callahan. It's Father's Day here in New Zealand next weekend, so I used Linda's sketch to make a card for my dad.
I chose the truck die then built my card around it. After die-cutting the truck elements, I blended some darker ink around the sides of the truck body and wheels (and looking at the photo, I now realise I've put one of the wheels upside down! Anyway, let's ignore that little faux pas. I wanted something to put in the truck bed and because my dad loves dogs, I chose a MFT set and coloured one of the little dogs and adhered him to the truck.
The road die wasn't wide enough for the base of the truck, so I cut a rectangle of gray cardstock and added some of the die-cuts from the centre of the road to mimic the rest of the road die-cut. To create a scene, I stenciled some grass and clouds onto a white panel and then added the die-cut elements. And yes, I now also realise I've got my road going up into the sky - doh! The day I made this card was obviously not a great day for creativity.
Onto a black card base, I added a panel of Enchanted Evening embossed with the sentiment and a strip of the silver matte foil cardstock used on the truck.
I then added my panel with foam tape.
Thanks so much for visiting. Please check out the fabulous cards made by the rest of the design team.
