Today we have a “festive” Christmas card. I began by stamping the truck, from the Trucking Along Stamp Set, in Cherry Cobbler Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I stamped the truck outline in Memento Black Ink, and colored the wheels with a Basic Black Stampin’ Blend.

Merrily Trucking


After coloring, I used the Trucking Along Punch for cutting, which will be available the middle of October. (The latest update is October 9). The stamp set is available NOW, in Online Exclusives, and clicking on its picture in my Product List will take you there.

Next, I loaded a tree onto the truck by using a Reindeer Die to cut Garden Green Cardstock. Isn’t this tree cute? I snipped the tree in half to make it the perfect size.


The background was created with Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 3 1/2″, embossed with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder. Prior to embossing, I used a Gorgeously Made Die to cut the top and bottom edges.

Beneath the music is Joy Of Christmas Designer Paper, 5 1/4″ X 4″, glued to a Thick Basic White card base.


The sentiment, “Wishing you a festive Christmas,” is from the Trucking Along Stamp Set. I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler Ink, used a Gorgeously Made Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals. Just had to add three Cherry Cobbler Enamel Dots from my retired stash.


When I saw the challenge at TGIF, I made an identical card using different colors.
