Vintage Trunk Cards (set of 2)

Hi everyone! Say whaaaat?! We’re a week into May already! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, a set of cards created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Classic Car Trunk Card Set cut file. I was thinking masculine and feminine – one of each – that could be used for birthday or friendship. And of course, you can tell immediately which is which, lol!


LOVE this classic car trunk design and it’s so fitting for a guy! And the inked light teal cardstock is perfect! I’m always so proud to create with Sandy’s designs because they are always spot-on and realistic. She thinks of everything with regard to the elements, and all you have to do is cut and assemble! ;)


I used a variety of cardstock. I cut the card base and license plate from thick white, the car body, trunk and fenders from light teal (which I inked), the rear window from gray, the lights from red and black, and the bumper from metallic silver. I pulled out a couple stamp sets in my stash that contained the exact sentiments I wanted to use on the trunk lid and the license plate, and then again on the inside!

And how about this vintage van… aka hippie van from my day?! OMG, I’m in love! I stamped flowers and peace signs all over it to make it girlie and feminine just like I would have painted it if I had been lucky enough to own one back in the day!


I cut these pieces on my Scan N Cut at the same time as the pieces for the other classic car card, using a heavy light green cardstock for the base, medium green for the van body and rear elements, gray for the windows, red for the lights, black for the tires, and metallic silver for the bumper. And once again, I found the perfect stamp set to use for the sentiment on the license plate and the inside sentiment!

I’m so smitten with both of these cards and can’t wait to send them to just the right people! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
