Happy first day of fall, y'all!! To celebrate this day, I have a fun card featuring Honey Bee Stamps new Loads of Fall stamp and die set that coordinates with the Big Pickup Tailgate set! As I was born in Texas and have lived here my entire life, the "howdy" and "happy fall y'all" sentiments in these sets just had to happen together on a card! LOL!
This time, I just used the Big Pickup Tailgate stamp and die set. To create my shaped card base, I took a top-folded 5-½" x 4-¼" card base, placed the Tailgate die on it with the top edge of the die just extending past the fold. When you run the folded card and die through your machine, you will have a shaped card base!
Next I stamped the Big Pickup Tailgate and the sunflowers (from the Loads of Fall set) with Intense black ink onto my 80# Neenah card stock. Then I used my Copics to color the images. There is a coordinating Big Pickup Details stencil set that makes it really easy to color the truck! I die cut the pickup with the coordinating die. Then I used the die for the tailgate to cut it out. Before I adhered the truck to my card base with Bee Creative glue, I stamped "howdy" on the license plate. Then I adhered the sunflowers to the tailgate, added foam tape to the back and adhered it to the card.
I stamped the sentiments from the Sweater Weather set on the inside of the card with Intense Black ink. I adhered the sunflower plant at the edge, letting it peek out to the front. I used the coordinating die to cut out Happy Fall Y'all and popped it up on the truck with foam strips.
To finish up, I used a black gel pen to add treads to the tires. Then I used a white gel pen to add little nightlight lines on the truck. It doesn't show in the photo, but I used a clear glitter pen on the flower centers. Lastly, I added a touch of Glossy Accents to the mirrors and taillights.
I love how this sweet card stands up and can be displayed with your fall decor!
I hope you've enjoyed my autumn version of the Big Pickup! Thank you so much for stopping by!
