Congrats Graduate! This fun Tailgate Treasure card will be such a surprise to give a new graduate!
I am using three i-crafter dies to create this card 3D card. The Box Card Truck Hearts die for the card base, the Carly Alphabet dies with Stand Up Window and Add On dies for the sentiment, the MoneyRoll / Lip Balm Box die for the truck bed gift holder part.
I am using the i-Motion Die Cutting and Embossing Machine with the i-Mend Self-Mending Magnetic ProCutting Deck to die cut the all pieces.
The i-Motion die cutting machine is a sturd manual crank machine. It is portable and a lighter weight than several of the other die cutting machines currently on the market. The handle is strong andwell attached! There will be no need to re-tighten this as it is a permanent, sturdy, and foldable handle.
A – All pieces are die cut from 80lb cardstock. I used light blue for the Money Roll box and the Truck front. I die cut two truck shapes from white cardstock, one for the truck bed and the other for the back.of the card. The silver mirror cardstock is used to die cut the truck bumper, side mirrors, and rear view mirrors. The tires are die cut from black cardstock.
B – Cutting the back flap off of the Money Roll/Lip Balm Box die, fold the box on the score lines and glue the box.leaving one flap open to add the graduate gift.
C – Cut one of the white trucks for the truck bed
D & E – Assemble the truck by gluing the tires, side wheel wells, and mirrors into place as shown.
F – Glue the second set of tires to the white truck bed and the silver mirror bumper just above the tires
G – The license plate is created with the rear view mirror die cut from white cardstock, framed in black with 2023 written in black pen. It is attached to the bumper. The Congrats word and shadow layer from the Stand Up Window and Add On dies are die cut from light blue and white cardstock. The word Carly Alphabet dies are used to create the word rad and it is glued to the Money Roll box.
Assemble the card by
H – Attach the white truck bed to the blue truck with Double-sided adhesive foam tape.
I – glue the word Congrats to the top of the white truck bed
J & K – Score the second white cardstock truck even with the top of the truck window and glue the top part of the truck (above the window opening) to the back of the blue truck creating the card flap to prop up the truck.
Finally glue the Money Roll Box to the Truck bed just above the license plate. Add your gift to the box and close the box flap.
