Loads of Love- Vintage Truck Wobbler Card

Hello, Crafty Friends!! It has been a while since I posted here on my blog but I am so glad to be back and posting for the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team!

Today, I created this fun and adorable slimline card featuring Eileen Hull's New Vintage Truck from Sizxix... with a bonus fun factor, IT WOBBLES!!

Action Wobbles (Hampton Arts)
Heart Punch (EK Success)
Sentiment Stamps (Diamond Press)

Silver Foiled Cardstock (Grafix)

 This Vintage Truck Die is a ScoreBoards die, and like most of Eileen's dies are meant to cut an array of thicker materials. Which makes it much more versatile. This die was designed to create a box but I'm going to use it without the box feature and use it to create a slimline card instead.

The Truck section of the die measure around 7"×3-1/2", this was not an exact measurement. I cut a 7" piece of Mat Board to accommodate,  allowing a little wiggle room off all sides for shifting when I die cut it through my Big Shot machine. 

I also cut a piece of blue navy blue Kingston Craft paper to 7"×5". I ran the paper through my Xyron Creative Station with permanent adhesive and adhered it onto the piece of Mat Board. 

Next, I cut off a 7" × 3-1/2" portion and placed it over the main Truck portion of the die. Then I used the remaining piece of Mat Board to die-cut the fender pieces. I also Die cut the tires from black cardstock and the hubcaps from silver foiled cardstock.

I inked all my Truck pieces with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink to make all the edges of the pieces stand out.

 I ran my Fender & Wheel pieces through my Xyron 3" sticker maker. Turning my die-cut pieces into stickers makes for quick and easy placement with absolutely NO drying time. Then I just peeled and stuck all the pieces in place and set my truck to the side.

I used my Eileen Hull Grass Die ( I'm so sad that this one was discontinued-sorry) to die cut 2 pieces each of dark and light green cardstock. I inked the edges of the grass with Lucky Clover & Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks and set my grass to the side while I worked on my slimline card base.

The card base itself is a 9"x8" piece of white cardstock scored and folded in half lengthwise to create a 9"x 4" card. 

I cut a mat for the card base measuring 8-3/4"x3-3/4" piece of navy blue Kingston Craft paper. Then cut an 8-1/2"x3-1/2" piece of teal and white gingham paper to mat that one. But before attaching it, I adhered the die-cut pieces of grass and trimmed off any overhang.

Then used my Xyron Tape Runner to adhere the panels onto my card base.

Next, I used more light green and dark green cardstock to die-cut pine trees. I cut out 4 of each color and inked them with Mowed Lawn and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks. Then attached them onto my card front hiding the tree stumps behind the grass.

I punched out a couple hearts from pink Kingston Crafts paper using an EK Success Heart Punch. It's an old favorite and I'm not sure if it is even produced anymore. But you can substitute whatever heart die you have laying around. 

I inked the edges of my hearts with 
Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink and then stamped them my Diamond Press "Wishing you loads of LOVE" sentiment using Versmark ink. I sprinkled white embossing powder over the top and then heat set it.

I attached the heart on top of the truck bed.

Then attached an action wobble spring to the back. I first found the center of my die-cut, an area that would be "balance" my truck without tipping or leaning more towards one side, then traced around the wobble spring for exact placement before attaching it.

Once I was happy with the placement, I attached it to my truck and then attached the truck onto my card.

And here is my finished card...
