It's been a crazy week so there haven't been any posts, but that's what back to school can do! I've been busy working on a few cards, but I wanted to show this card today. I made this card for a very special boy who's turning 5. He absolutely loves trains so I wanted to make this as "trainy" as I could.
To make this Thomas and Friends card, I used a blue Recollections paper for the 5x7 card base. I used Bazzill Basics Blackbird for the first layer on the blue. I used a fun silver texture paper from Recollections at Michaels to add a metal colour to the card. I had this fun polka dot paper with the colours of the trains in Thomas and Friends and thought it would be great for this card. I handmade the tracks using the metallic paper and kraft cardstock. I stained the edges of the track with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I found this great Thomas and Friends png file. If you don't know what a PNG file is, it's a picture that has a transparent background. So you can use it on anything and all you see is the image. No white background to cut out. I blocked out the Thomas and Friends that was originally in the cloud and added my own greeting.
I hope Nathan loves his card! It was fun to make. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
