Chuggin' By

Hi there.  It's Kim from Katydid Cards with you today.

Have you seen the Train Mix Brads in the Eyelet Outlet store?  I've got to tell you, they are so cute!  I decided to try using them in a different way and love the effect.  Let me show you my card and then I'll share more about what I did.

I found the free clipart background from the Internet.  I imported it into my e-cutter and then traced around the black silhouette and cut it from black cardstock, welding it to a rectangle frame.  I adhered acetate to the back and then attached it directly to the background on mounting tape, being careful to align it.

Before adhering the piece, though, I attached the train through the acetate so they seem to float on the railroad bridge.  To add to the scene, I included the Deer Brads.  I typed out the greeting and fussy cut it to look like steam and attached that so that it's coming from the engine.

Inside, a simple sentiment playing off the train theme.

I'm working on another card with a train which would be great to give a child who loves trains and can use a bit of encouragement, so stay tuned for that.
