Another Old Truck Father's Day Card



I simply LOVE this Old Truck Image from Fred She Said. And since it comes as a digi and also in four pre-colored images, I thought I'd use the Blue Truck today.

The starting inspirations for this card started with a sketch from Sketchy Colors

Once I had the sketch and the image I thought I was set for an easy peasy card. WRONG! So many indecisions followed. For some reason, I just did not like just the plain blue dot "Wanderful" background paper. So after about an hour of walking back and forth and looking at the design, I dug out an old retired CTMH stamp set with pine trees. Wala!!! Just what it needed. 

But then I didn't like the horizontal strip of designer paper I chose for right behind the truck, which was the flip side of the blue dot paper.  So, I switched from the dark print to green cardstock and dry embossed with a wood grain embossing folder

The Happy Father's Day is from the CTMH Holiday Tags Stamp Set.

It's amazing how what started out as being a 10 minute card turned out to take several hours. I sure wish I wasn't such a perfectionist. 


Here is the sketch I used.

The Old Truck - Father's Day Card



It's been a while since I last posted a card. But, it's time to make Father's Day Cards. So, let's get started.

My card today is made using The Old Truck pre-colored image from Fred She Said. This image makes a great masculine card to use for any occasion. This image comes as a Digi to color yourself and four different pre-colored trucks. 
The beginning inspiration came from a sketch Challenge from Inspired By Stamping.
