Fire Truck

I made this card for the fiance of my husband's cousin. He just recently became a volunteer firefighter and was extremely excited about it. My husband and I are both very happy for him, and a little jealous since we are not currently on a fire department. :) The card is 4"x9" and I used cardstock from my stash for most of it. The fire truck is cut at 3." I used pop-dots to adhere the wheels and ladder to the truck and to adhere the truck to the card base. I stamped my sentiment and then went over it again with black diamond Stickles. I added yellow Stickles to the headlight and top light. I also gave the truck a coat of glossy accents to make it bright, shiny, red truck! :)
Supplies used:
  • Cardstock: The Paper Company
  • Patterned paper: Paper House Productions
  • Cartridges: Beep Beep - fire truck
  • Stamp: The Paper Company - "Greetings"
  • Ranger: glossy accents, Stickles - black diamond and yellow
I made this for the following challenges:
