Quick card for Brother

My brother's birthday snuck up on me and I made a quick card to get in the mail, so it would reach him on time.

I used my Cricut Expression to cut a pick-up truck from the "Just Because Cartridge" and tire tread from "Dude" cartridge. The truck is red Bazzill edged with Tim Holtz Aged Mahogany distress ink popped up with foam dots; fenders, door handle and bumper are silver mirror cardstock; Using my craft knife, I cut out the window and put in a piece of acrylic to look like glass. I used a woodgrain stamp to stamp the boards & sponged the edges with TH Tea Dye, then stamped "Happy" and "Birthday" on little tags placed in the bed of the truck.

The circle verse "Picking up Some Wishes for You!" (the pick-up is hauling wishes) I created using MS Word with Word Art program, punched out with a Marvy punch . Tea Dye was also sponged around the edge. The design echoes that of the tires.

Papers are by 7 Gypsies- Zanzibar 8x8" pad. Faux stitching around the edge.
