The "Little Red Truck" Christmas - Hand Stamped Sentiment #304

If it's not Buffalo Plaid, it's Red Pick Up Trucks.  Everywhere you look (besides the SU catalogue of course) there are  red pick up trucks with a Christmas tree on the back.  Some even have Buffalo Plaid on them.

So, for the current sketch challenge with Hand Stamped Sentiments here I incorporated both the Red Pick Up Truck and the Buffalo Plaid to make this Christmas card.

The red pick up truck from "Farmhouse Christmas" was stamped on Whisper White, then coloured with Stampin' Blends :  Cherry Cobbler (light and dark), Smoky Slate (light and dark), Pool Party (Light and Dark), Granny Apple Green (Light and Dark).  Before die cutting the image using the Circles Framelits, I stamped some snow falling in the background, and a bit of ice on the road.  Some Dazzling Diamonds was added to the top of the truck and the road.  

The art piece was matted with a Cherry Cobbler scallop circle before adding it to the card front.

The sentiment was stamped on a rectangular piece of Whisper White that had the upper and lower corners of the left end notched with a small circle punch.  Some Garden Green card stock matted 3/4 of this piece, which extended behind the art piece circle.

The base card is Cherry Cobbler layered with a piece of Festive Farmhouse DSP the left side of which was stamped lightly with the bare tree stamp.  On the right side I added a strip of plaid  DSP .  The art piece was added near the bottom towards the right side of the card front.

You are so right--it's all about buffalo check or red farm trucks and I love that trend! You've paid such great attention to the details surrounding your farm truck and each one of them is fantastic! The red plaid dsp was a super choice for accenting! Thanks for playing along with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
