The Second Fire Truck Thank You Card

January 2, 2019

Today’s project for sharing is the second fire truck thank you card I was asked to make.  This one is for the members of the Homeowner’s Alliance (nowhere near a homeowner’s association—we aren’t that fancy!) Board to sign.  Our entire Mi-Muk Village community is excited about receiving a very well cared for donated fire truck.  Our budget is small but our need is great.  We are the last (highest on ‘the hill’) fully staffed fire department along Highway 108, at about 4,500′, heading up to the Sonora Pass which is at 9,600′ feet.

The layout for this card could be adapted for many other images and colors.  I’ll be coming back to it for another card in the near future.

The fire truck layer is sitting on Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The punched circle is attached to the layer with a small strip of adhesive applied directly to the back of the layer.  Then I added a simple clear enamel star to match the embossed layer.

This was the inspiration card that I found on Pinterest.

The products in this card are all non-Stampin’ Up! and, of course, that wouldn’t work for me so I perused the products I had on hand to create my own card, Stampin’ Up! style.

Below are the products I used.  The You’re My Hero stamp set, the 2016-2018 In Color Envelope Paper and the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder are all retired items that still live in my rubber loft, aka stamp room.

I’m pretty sure you’ll agree with me that the second fire truck thank you card is a bit more elaborate than yesterday’s card.  There are fewer people signing this second card so I could spend more energy and use up more space on this card.  I’m sorry I can’t offer to provide some of the supplies I used but I hope I showed you that you can improvise with products you have on hand to turn an inspiration card into a card that suits your immediate needs.
