Santa's Helper

It's Christmas in July on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper blogs! 

My first Christmas card for this month features "Off To The Dump". Different right?! but when I saw this stamp I knew I wanted to use it for a Christmas card. 
Near the town I live in, we have a gentleman who attends as many of the local, small town Santa Claus parades as he can. He goes to the parade in his dump truck because at each parade he fills the back with food and gift donations. People know he will be there and are extremely generous with their donations. 
This kind, big hearted man and his dump truck  have inspired my card for this week -  he truly is Santa's Helper. 




I stamped my dump truck and then stamped it again on a post it note and cut it out to mask the truck off. Next I grabbed my presents stamp and did the same thing so I could fill the back of the truck, coloured it with alcohol markers and then hand fussy cut it. 
 Gold and silver Wink of Stella was added to the bows and some of the wrapping paper - I like a little bit of bling on my Christmas cards.  I added it to some snow banks I cut using an edge die and some fun Christmasy paper from Echo Park. A few die cut trees, matching ribbon and enamel dots finish off my card.
