Christmas Truck



Hello!  Today I’m back for another Sneaky Peek at The Cat’s Pajamas, and the Christmas in July Release.  Today there’s a sweet combination of Dies that are perfect for Christmas, and some of them can multi-purpose for any time of the year.  

Today I’m showing you the Little Truck Die.  It’s so darn cute!  I think it’s perfect for any season.  I love the siderails, and just had to find some woodgrain paper to make them wood rails.  The truck has some nice whitewall tires, and I used the smallest window hole to make the doorhandle.  Reminds me of my Dad’s cute little red Ram 50 truck he had.  

I’ve added a cute little tree and star from the Warmest Wishes Set, using an evergreen branch from the stamp set as a freshly cut tree.  


I’ve placed it all on a Framed Up Die, and, stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment with another set from this release O Holy Night,  then placed it on a layer cut with the Holiday Toppers CutUps Die, sponging in some soft Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink.  

The background is inked with Great Outdoors Stencil to give the feeling of falling snow.  


Just a single snowflake from the Five Snowflakes Die combo finishes of that bit of twine.  


Here’s a peek at the Die.  So cute hey?  Couldn’t you see it done tons of different ways with lots of fun stuff in the truck box?
