Pickup Truck Christmas Card

Ready to get started on this year’s stash of Christmas cards?  Today’s cute pickup truck Christmas card is ready to deliver holiday cheer!  Welcome to Festive Friday, where we are celebrating Parent’s Day with a Watercolor twist!  I went with the twist.

pickup truck Christmas cardI am so happy Stampin’ Up! came out with a new pickup truck set.  Ride with Me is an adorable set, complete with pumpkins, balloons, and a tree to haul in the back.  It includes sentiments for birthdays, encouragement, fall, and Christmas, making it a very versatile set. Because I need to get started on my holiday cards, I opted to create a Christmas card. I hope you enjoy it!

Colors of the Day

Stampin’ Blends are our friends! I used the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend to create the frosty winter sky.  Dark Real Red shaded with Dark Smoky Slate was used for the truck. Light Balmy Blue was used for the window, and of course, Dark Basic Black is the perfect color for the tires. As for the tree, what could be better than Light and Dark Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends?
