Home for the Holidays Collaboration

Hello friends! Today I have something FUN to share with you. Polka Dot Orchard has started a Collaboration Wednesday feature on their blog. Basically, anyone on their team can choose a friend to craft with! Our friend receives a digital stamp set from Polka Dot Orchard, and then creates something fun and unique to share with you.  I chose Helen Gullet and we used the "Home for the Holiday's" set for our projects today. Be sure to stop by Helen's blog and check out the beautiful card she created with this fun set!!

To create my truck shaped card I:
  • printed the digital image FIVE times
    • Two full sized images on blue cardstock
    • One of the tree on mixed media paper and
    • One of the fenders
    • One of the headlights
  • cut out the windows with an X-acto knife
  • inked the edges of BOTH full sized trucks with salty ocean distress oxide
  • colored the tree with Prismacolor pencils, added snow and a sparkly star and glued it to the back of my FIRST truck
  • cut two black circles and two white circles with Spellbinders nestabilities  -- glued them over the tires of the FIRST truck
  • added the white headlights and a fence to the bed of the SECOND truck
  • adhered the second truck to the first one using foam mounting tape to pop it up
  • inked the fenders with salty ocean ink and popped them up over the tires
  • die cut a wreath for the door and added a baker's twine bow
Supplies and tools:
  • Home for the Holidays digital stamp set (Polka Dot Orchard)
  • Prismacolor Pencils
  • Aleene's Glitter Snow
  • Star die (Firefly)
  • Farm Fence Die (Honeybee Stamps)
  • Pine Wreath die (Memory Box) 
  • Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
  • Golden Rod Glitter Embossing Powder (Ranger)
  • Baker's Twine
  • Foam Mounting Tape
  • These colors of distress oxide (Ranger)
    • Walnut Stain
    • Salty Ocean
