Truck Card

Hey, here's a card any man would love! I think that most men can relate to old trucks, at least, the ones that I know. I know, some like new Corvettes & Mustangs better but still, there's something about an old truck that appeals to a man.
Materials needed:

International Bazaar patterned paper (#126920) 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"
White card stock
Papaya Collage stamp set (#126612)
Countryside stamp set (#120495)
3/8" Satin Stitched Gumball Green ribbon (#126848)
Watercolor pencils (#101879)
Blender pen (#102845)
Wild Wasabi ink
StazOn Black ink

1. Stamp the frame from Papaya Collage stamp set in Wild Wasabi ink on white card stock. Cut it out around the outside lines.
2. Use a blue and a green watercolor pencil and a blender pen to color in sky and grass on the background of the inside frame.

3. Stamp the truck from the Countryside stamp set in StayOn Black ink on white card stock. Color the truck, apples, etc, including sky and grass with the watercolor pencils of your choice. Use the blender pen to blend the colors in. 
4. Cut out the around the truck, cutting close to the front and back edges of the truck image. This barely fits so you have to cut close to the front fender and the back tailgate. Place it on the stamped frame to check for fit. Trim as needed.
5. Place Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the truck image and place it in the center of the frame. Adhere the frame to the top center of the patterned paper.
6. Cut a piece of Gumball Green ribbon about 9" long. Tie a knot in the center. Add adhesive to the back and press on to the bottom section of the patterned paper. Wrap the ends around to the back.
7. Adhere the card front to a card base and add your sentiment to the inside. This would be a great card to send to a man for most any occasion.

***SU! no longer carries the Watercolor Pencils but you can find similar sets at many craft stores. This is still one of my favorite mediums to use in coloring my images. I haven't used them as much this past year because SU! is no longer carrying them but that's not going to stop me from enjoying a fun medium. I would encourage you to try different coloring mediums to see what you like the best. Which one do I like the best? Hard to say because I like them all!
