Merry Christmas Vintage Truck Card

Hello to all of my Crafty Friends Stopping by to see my project today.
I must tell you I scrap lifted this card from Mary over at Cardz TV.  Oh my gosh as soon as I saw hers I fell in love.  Of course my card has different papers and a couple other small changes but for the most part it is very close to the one she made and shared in her video.  I love Mary's Cards so much and her videos are always great too.  You can find her video that inspired this card by clicking HERE
 
Items I used:
Red Recollections Card stock for Card Base - top fold 4.25" X 5.5"
My Christmas Papers are from Authentique Believe collection including Green for Tree which is cut from Cricut - Winter Frolic
The green dotted paper is a scrap from my stash
Red Truck Cricut - Just Because Cards is also cut from Red Recollections card stock
The silver accents I wanted to look like chrome and are cut from this foil sheets pack I picked up at DT (Dollar Tree) Boy I need to go get some more of that :)
I also cut a second door Handle from silver foil to use for the back bumper piece, in the video Mary colored that on along with the headlight she added.  I also cut an extra small circle (tire rims) but out of Grey like the window and cut it in half to use for the front headlight.  I went over it with a silver Cricut marker to give it some shine.
There was a tiny sliver piece that I didn't see Mary use, I added it to the front edge of the window to give another chrome accent... not sure if it was supposed to go there but I liked how it looked lol. 
I cut the wooden rail out of Recollections Kraft card stock.
I popped up the 2 fenders on foam tape.
I drew the door on like Mary did and also around lots of my cut pieces to accent them better using my Spectrum Noir - EB2
Merry Christmas stamp is from Desert Craftin Diva's - Happy Celebration Set & is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
On the Inside I used some of the same papers to accent the top of my white sentiment mat
plus I cut another tree Cricut - Winter Frolic at 1 1/2" this time
I also inked the edges of all my pieces with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress ink
Sentiment Stamp is from Crafters Companion - Sheena Douglass Christmas stamp set
& is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
I also made an envelope to match!  Using an envelope cut from Just Because Cards (Page 68) and sizing it to fit an A2 card... I do this on the computer (Dimensions 10" X 7.25") so not sure it would work from the cartridge cut on Cricut expression or lower.  I also trimmed off the flap cut in a matching pattern paper to add more cuteness to the envelope by just attaching to the flap only.

I am entering into these fun Challenges:
