When I design a card for a young boy who loves trucks, I like to use the photo of a truck as the main attraction. It makes sense, right?

And because I like old classics, I might lean toward modifying the photo of an old truck, like the beauty above.

Well, not so fast.

Because of intellectual property restrictions, I cannot simply take my photo of the beautiful old truck and use it on Frederic’s card. In fact, sadly, I had to disguise it so completely that it is no longer — to an adult — recognizable as a Chevy.


Thankfully, this two-year-old boy also likes ice cream, animals, balloons and candles. I’m hoping that these overlays on his birthday card will succeed in entertaining him.

Even if he doesn’t see the truck. 😉
