Train



While working on some masculine cards I came across this train in my search for an image to use. I had only 2 stamped of it from a past swap who knows how long ago so I colored them both then cut out the front and pop dotted it on for some dimension.
The matting and base card are actually brown although I think they look more like black here. The patterned paper is the last of the one sheet wonder I had cut at the beginning of the month (I think!) and then I found the metal Thank You in my trinket box so added it to the lower corner. After looking a bit at it I thought it to be lopsided so I grabbed the fiskars decorative scissors and cut the corner piece for the right hand top.
Pretty simple card - no frilly stuff for the guys!
Someday I think I would love to hop a train and go for a ride!
hugs,

I love this card. It's usually so hard to come up with masculine stuff. What a fabulous job you did! Don't you love it when you get to use up odds and ends - it's so much fun. It looks like all the items were designed for each other. Thanks for telling us how you did it, I love to hear those details....Tracy
