A birthday train for Bryn..

It was our next door neighbour's youngest son's birthday on Tuesday and this is the card that I made for him. I used papers from the DCWV Kids stack. I matted and layered striped and patterned papers with blue card. Then I embossed a piece of the blue card with an embossing folder. I added a strip of the striped paper to the bottom of the embossed piece and added four candy dots which I glittered. I cut the train from black and coloured cardstock and pieced it together using a different colour for each truck. I cut some strips of card with scalloped scissors and added a piece to the top of each truck. The wheels were enhanced with brads and a number 3 added to the train engine. I hand cut the smoke clouds from glittercard and cut each letter of the name from a different coloured glitter card. The trucks of the train were joined with a piece of fine silver cord adhered to the back and the whole train was adhered to the blue panel with foam pads, as were the letters. The inside of the card was decorated with a strip of the patterned paper and 'Happy Birthday' cut from blue cardstock.
