Birthday Boy Dump Truck Shaped Card

Good morning! 
Did you have a great weekend? We did. Tom got a lot done on the house construction with help from a couple of great guys. Still a lot of work to be done, but it's coming along nicely even with the weekend rain showers.

Today I have a Dump Truck shaped card for a birthday boy to show you.
The wheels are adhered with brads, so they turn. Fun!
And the dump part of the truck is also adhered with a brad so it can be moved up and down to dump and reload a haul. There is a little tap under the dump bed to stop it from swinging down to the tires.

I found this shaped card in the Silhouette store, and it included a link to an assembly tutorial. I love it when cuts include tutorial links!

  • Silhouette ID# 59500 
  • Cardz TV Stamps "Make a Wish"
  • Assembly Tutorial here
  • Tiny Silver brads from Stampin' Up
  • Papers from Bazzill and K&Co.

Thanks for stopping by today!
See you tomorrow.
