Monsters! In a Truck!

Hi folks!

I hope you all are doing well!  Today I am part of the Exploring Cricut challenge.  The challenge was to make a card, layout, or paper craft project using a mode of transportation.  After speaking with my friend Rebecka, she challenged me to use a truck transporting some monsters.  I set to work with both challenges and came up with the card you see below.


I used two Cricut cartridges for this card.  I used Everyday Paper Dolls for the truck.  I cut it in red and black so I could cut out the wheels and place them on the truck.  For the monsters, I used the Happy Hauntings cartridge to cut out Frankie, Frankie's Bride and Skully, as I call them.  :)

I cut each monster at 2" and placed all of their layers together.  With the way Frankie was positioned, I wanted to have him driving so it looked like one arm was hanging out of the window.  I am so pleased with how this card turned out.  I think it is my favorite card, hands down.  :)  Check out some close-up pictures below.




I finished it up by adding Stickles to the car.  I used black for the bumpers and yellow for the headlights.  I also used a grey 8.5"x11" cardstock simply folded in half.  This will allow for me to give this to a younger child so they can have a big card to open.


Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did making it! Thanks for stopping by!

Craft on,
Ian
