Headed Your Way!

One of my favorite customers is my HVAC friend who routinely orders cards for every holiday for his three children.   While he claims I save him a lot of time and trouble, I think he's a pretty special guy to even be ordering cards for his kids.  He is always on top of the holidays by making sure he orders in plenty of time (knowing it takes me a while due to other orders) and is very grateful for anything I prepare for him.  What a blessing!

His oldest son is nine now... so making an Easter card is getting right on the edge of being too childish.  He loves big trucks though and I thought this image just might work this year for him.

 I made the image about 4" long and colored it with bright Copic colors, staying with blues and reds as the main color choices.  The Whimsy Stamp Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle die was perfect for the edge, giving it a 'road' like finish.  

Next I selected a coordinating Aqua card and added a simple navy strip for contrast, then secured the image in the center. For the finishing touch, I added the red string at the fold and tied a simple bow.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.

  1. Beautiful Easter card. It´s really funny to see the Easter bunny driving with this lorry. Pretty design by using this great stiched die. And I like the ribbon tied around the card.
