Dies R Us Challenge - One for the Men/Boys

Hello All...
It's time once again for a new challenge
at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.

And, the theme is:

One for the Men/Boys in our Lives

This was fun and it's always good to have a few extra masculine
cards in your stash since they are probably the hardest to create!

 This card began with the background blue/white panel which came as a card from a company we make contributions to.  There were four cards in the set and a couple I thought I could repurpose as I have done today.

The dies used are:

Impression Obsession 'Truck'
Impression Obsession - Dies - Classic Truck

Impression Obsession 'Split Tree'
Impression Obsession - Dies - Split Tree

Lawn Fawn 'Grassy Hillside Borders' (#LF1200)

Lawn Fawn 'Stitched Mountain Borders'
Lawn Fawn - Stitched Mountain Borders Dies

Sue Wilson 'Mini Expressions - Happy Birthday'
Sue Wilson Designs - Mini Expressions - Happy Birthday

I first die cut the truck from blue card stock but thought it looked too 'dull' so I die cut it again from royal blue foil paper and adhered it to the card stock truck ... then used dimension tape to give it added dimension.
I do hope you'll come join in this fun challenge and
if you need more inspiration ... be sure to pop over and see what 
our design team has created for you!

Hope to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by ...
As always ...

  5. Aren't those mountains fun?!! Some guy would love to get that truck for his birthday, but short of that, he'll love the card, too!

  6. Oh, I just love the wonderful scene you created, Darlene! Awesome classic truck in royal blue! Fabulous sky, tree, and mountains, too! A perfect masculine card!!

  7. That is the coolest little truck and I love the mirror card colors! Fun little scene using some great dies!!

  8. Beautiful masculine card, love the impressive sky and that truck in silver paper!!

  9. You have brought all these dies together to make a terrific masculine card, love the foil you used for the truck and I noticed you added some snow on the higher elevations, let us just keep it there, LOL!!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
