Tasty Trucks, Birthday Card, 2017 Sale-a-Bration, February 2017 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

There's a few things going on here with this card. First, the background paper is from the February 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.  It was a cute kit but I didn't need a bunch of invitations so I thought I would use them for backgrounds.  

I liked the opening in it and fortunately the words from the "Tasty Trucks" Sale a Bration set fit in it perfectly! Like it was meant to be!!! I was thrilled when I saw that it fit and I just ran with it.

I cut the invitation holder to 5" x 3-3/4".  I made sure I had the opening for the words at the top and I just trimmed it up where I thought things should go!

I stamped a truck and fussy cut it out.  I also fussy cut 4 treats from the decorative paper scrap I had left over from a card I made the other day.  I set those on the truck using Dimensionals.  I did set the truck in place using Dimensionals as well.  

I layered the Paper Pumpkin background paper on top of a piece of Whisper White.  No, I did not stamp the words through the window. I stamped them on a scrap piece of cardstock and taped it to the back. I would never have gotten it that nice and even had I done it directly!  The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Watermelon Wonder.  Before I taped the two layers to the card base, I wrapped some white baker's twine around it and tied a bow.  

It was pretty simple to make but it with all of the fussy cutting, it did take a little bit of time. But it wasn't bad. Under 20 minutes.  There's lots of "under 20 minutes" cards on my blog.  Click here and you can see them.  Be prepared to spend some time looking, there's over 1200 (they add up over the 10+ years I've been blogging here)!!!

My younger sister's birthday is less than 2 weeks away and I'm ahead of the game!  I have her card ready!! Yay me!

Thank you for stopping by today,
