This past week my brother, Randy, passed his Commercial Driving License (CDL) test. He had been out of work for almost a year and although he was taking classes to become an electrician, he was having difficulties finding an apprenticeship even though he was at the top of his class. After talking it over with his family and extended family he decided to look into getting his CDL. On the recommendation of a cousin, he contacted Roehl Trucking and signed up for their 3 week training program. I just knew I had to make a special card for my brother when we heard the good news that he had passed his CDL test!
This card was so much fun to make and I think it really turned out great. To help me out, I searched the internet for “Semi Truck Punch Art Card” and really didn’t find anything but I did find a “volkswagon bug” card by Sam on her blog that helped provide me with a starting point. I then pulled up the Roehl Trucking website and found a great photo of a Semi Trailer to use as my template.
I used the largest oval punch for the cab and engine compartments of the truck then used the smaller ovals for the windshield and front grill of the truck. The headlights were created using the Heart to Heart punch. The bumper I cut with my paper cuter to the size I wanted. The mirrors were hand cut. The wheels were made by using the modern label extra large punch.
Here is my finished card:
