Dump Truck Card

Dump Truck Card
I made this card using my Gypsy, Cricut and "B is for Boy" Cricut Lite Cartridge, available at Wal-mart. I have to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE the "B is for Boy" cart, it is super cute. I also used a Mypinkstamper Happy Birthday stamp and hand wrote on the inside "Hope you have a great Haul". This is a perfect card for a little boy's birthday (I think), Using my Gypsy I got the base of the dump truck, sized it to the size I wanted (I tend to size based on if I am going to use a 12x12 or 8 1/2 x11 piece of paper) and then I duplicated it. I flipped one of the images and butted them together, then I went to Plantin School Book and got a rectangle and welded it to the butt joint to give the card some stability (I hope that makes sense) and a larger fold. Then I cut out the different layers and layered it up, it is a super easy card to make. Oh, I did use the "hide countour" feature to hid the wheel and other accent cut lines on the back piece of the card so that it is solid with no cuts.

I also wanted to share the cute T shirts that I made today. I picked up some T shirts at the craft store and a package of onesies at Wal-Mart . I used digital stamps (the Pirate Dragon is a Dustin Pike Stamps) the others I got as freebies but do not know who made them, if anyone knows please let me know so I can give credit. I used Photoshop to color them in and then printed them out on Transfer paper using the mirror image feature on the printer. I just ironed them on using the directions in the transfer paper package, super cute!!!
