Christmas Truck with Ornaments

The old red truck has seemed to be all the rage the last few years. I was recently asked to design one for the holiday season and wanted to create one that was a little different from the others I have seen.

The Christmas Truck with Ornaments has two designs. You can either cut it out of card stock for a layered look or vinyl and make a picture.

Instructions

and

hide them

Then click on the Make It button


The prepare screen will appear




Now if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the red Cardstock I used is medium cardstock weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.
