It is my son’s 7th birthday and as he is fond of trains, I had to make him a train card of course.
I started with stamping and colouring the images from Avery Elle Christmas Train. I used Copic markers and because blue is my little boy’s favourite colour, I made the train and cart blue. I used the coordinting dies to cut all images out.
For the background I used Newton’s Nook Design’s Petite Snow stencil with white textured paste on light blue cardstock. I set it aside to dry until I was working on the sentiment.
I die cut the Happy and Birthday words from the Waffle Flower Year Round words set using black cardstock. I also die cut a balloon from MFT Balloon Numbers from red glitter cardstock and backed it with a white balloon.
To set the scene I needed a snowbank so I used Newton’s Nook Design’s Land border die and white glitter cardstock. The perfect railway I found in Mama Elephant’s Little Train Agenda.
After assembling the card I popped up the train and balloon with 3D foam squares and used a clear shimmer pen on the presents and glossy accents to emphasize some details.
I wish you like my card as much as my son does.
See you soon,
