Hello, friends! It’s Bobbi Lemanski here with truckloads of festive fun for the holidays. I’m sharing two truck-shaped projects that are very colorful from front-to-back, literally! I’m using new products from the Holiday Cheer release available now at Honey Bee Stamps. For both projects, I’m using the Big Pickup Cab stamp set and coordinating die set for the fronts and the Big Pickup Tailgate stamp set and coordinating die set for the back. Did you know the two designs match up perfectly and can be used together for fronts and backs? Here’s the full list of products I’m featuring:
For the holiday accessories, I used images from these sets:
Tailgate Alphabet die set for the SANTA letters on the green tailgate
The backs of these cards are just as cute as the fronts, maybe even cuter. 🙂
Green Pickup Gift Card Box
My first pickup was made for super speedy Santa deliveries! When Santa’s sleigh is in the shop, he uses this “2FAST4U” pickup truck for deliveries. 🙂 The Santa and elf are from the stamp set, Santa’s Village stamp and coordinating die set.
This truck has a fun tailgate, too. I used the Tailgate Alphabet die set to spell, SANTA on the back. In the tailgate, I added a little elf, Santa’s mega gift bag, and many other gifts from the Santa’s Village stamp and coordinating die set. Did you see Santa’s license plate? There are so many license plate options in the tailgate set for all different occasions like retirement, birthday, etc. The added snowflakes were added using a white gel pen.
Between the front and back of this free-standing pickup, I’ve adhered a business card-sized clear box inside. This is a place to add a gift card, candy or gift. I’ve tucked an Amazon gift card inside mine using the side accessible opening of the box. What’s fun is that this cute pickup can sit on a mantel or shelf as a decoration, too! Grandpa or Dad might enjoy this as a stocking stuffer. 🙂
Here’s the Copic Marker colors I used on this gift card holder:
- Pickup truck body: YG99, YG67, YG63, YG61, YG03, rust – YR27, YR24, shading – W4, C9, C7, C5, C3, lights/reflectors – Y19, Y06, R59, R29, R17, snowflakes – white gel pen
- Holiday accessories: BG49, BG13, BG11, YG00, YG03, R59, R29, R14, W4, W1, C5, C3, C1
- Elf: E000, E00, E11, E57, E44, YG03, YG00, C5, C3
Red Pickup Shaped Card
For my next project, I made a shaped card, I created the front and back and added the polka dot bow to the grill from the No Peeking stamp and coordinating die set. The animals in the cab and tailgate are from the Woodland Winter Animals stamp set and coordinating die set.
The evergreen bough draped on the tailgate and the fancy gifts are from the Farmhouse Tree Builder stamp and coordinating die set, too. I added Celebration Confetti Mix to the evergreens to look like little sparkly ornaments. The added snowflakes were added using a white gel pen.
To create the card base so that it is remains attached at the top fold line, I fold a piece of white cardstock in half and position one of the truck dies (note: the pickup body die is identical in both the cab and tailgate sets so you only need one here) so that the die falls off the fold of the cardstock. The picture above shows how the card looks on the fold line. Next, I attached my card front and card back to the base. This double layering construction hides all Copic bleeding, too!
Here’s the Copic Colors used on this shaped card:
- Pickup Truck body: R89, R59, R29, R17, R14, rust – YR27, YR24, shading – W4, C9, C7, C5, C3, lights/reflectors – Y19, Y06, R59, R29, R17, snowflakes – white gel pen
