A card from Boys Will Be Boys

I stayed up way too late last night watching the Cricut E2 Launch on HSN, but I am so excited for this machine! Can't wait to get mine!!!
I saw this truck image on the Boys Will Be Boys cartridge and I had wanted to make a birthday card for my brother with it but I ran out of time.  I still wanted to make a card with it so I didn't put a saying on it and I will save it for maybe when my little nephew is born!  
I made it look like my brother's truck and my little boy came in and said "look its uncle Kristian's truck"!
I didn't have metallic paper so that I could do the "chrome" so I used some smooch to do my "chrome" areas!!!

Love it! Looks like my son's truck. Is the diamond plate background a cuttlebug folder? Thanks for sharing.

Adorable! Great truck!

Looks great!

FYI-when you need metal paper and don't have it, just run some cardstock through a xyron machine to add adhesive and then stick aluminum foil on top of the cardstock, then use as needed or run through your cuttlebug.

I posted about it here:

@Ms. Craftsalot, that is a great tip. Thanks for sharing!

Karlee, cute card. I love it! What is this "smooch" you used for the chrome areas? I haven't heard of that before.

Thanks for sharing!

so cute! - Isn't it fun to find a craft that is personal to the person you are making the item for.

I am certian he thinks the world of the card.
Lovin it!

Victoria said...

One smart little dude. Did you send a text/ pic to ' the boy'? Think all the sibs would love it.

Hi Karlee!!
YEP!! Definitely an exhausting few days! BUT SO FUN!!! I gave in & got an E2! As I commented on Robyn's blog, I have to try to disguise it when it gets here! Thought of a "dust throw", but maybe a pair of "nose glasses w/a mustache" will work! hahaha...nope, I think that will draw more attention! In any case...I can't wait 'till it gets here!
Your card is GREAT! And Ms. Craftsalot suggestion about alum foil is awesome! (gonna head on over there now!)
Thought you could still send this card to your brother, since your son said it does look like his truck & you can write something like, "Rolling By To Say Hi!" or even just "Thinking Of You". It's always great to get mail other than bills!

HI Karlee -
This card is great! Why not send it to your brother any way? He will be touched to know you thought of him. I stayed up way too late last night also. Got my E-2. Said I wouldn't buy it, but then just had to have it!
