Hi Guys!

It’s time for my design team post over at Team KNK so if you’d like to check out what I’ve been up to this time, head on over to today’s post where you can also grab my freebie ;)

I hope you like it :)

Hi Guys!

I’m still knee deep in packing, isn’t it funny how you accumulate so much more stuff over time than you realised and you discover all kinds of things that you haven’t seen for years or had completely forgotten that you own at all. I’m definitely using the move as a chance to have a big old clear out and get rid of a load of stuff that I really don’t need to be holding on to, and nope, that doesn’t include my craft stash ;) That won’t be going anywhere but in my new craft room!

A little boy in my family has a Birthday coming up soon so today I’m sharing the card I have made for him. I have some toys for him that have moving parts and make fun noises, one of them is a Rubbish Truck with a bin on the side that slides up and tips at the top. I thought he’d enjoy receiving a card to match one of his pressies so that’s what I’ve picked to do, the back of the truck on my card tips up and the little yellow bin on the side slides up and down too.

I picked colours of card which matched the toy truck, it was quite straight forward to put together but it is worth remembering to add the little grey strips of card to the side of the truck before you pop your bin in place. To add the bin I glued the yellow pieces together then added 2 small 3d foam pads to the very middle of the back of the bin and slotted them through the slit in the truck, I added a piece of card that was larger than the slit to the other side of the foam pads once the bin was in place ensuring that the bin can’t fall off. Once all of the other pieces have been glued together and the side of the truck is assembled, you can attach it with a brad in the bottom left corner which allows it to tip up (see the second photo).

I designed this Easter Egg Card last year and stumbled across it recently, with Easter being just around the corner it’s just in time. It can be used as an Easter greetings card or as a gift card on the front of some choccies :)

There is a card base with a swirly design and a band across the middle. There is a layer to glue behind the front on the inside of the card for you to add a contrasting colour and you also have the pieces to make the layered bow to sit on the band at the front of your card.
