Hi there friends!
Just whooshing past today with a quick share of hubby's Birthday card ! I am on with the Christmas cards...some (just a few) are done but I cannot share yet......so Birthday card it is.....
Hubby is a lover of steam trains and I have to say quite critical of some of the dies out there.... but he liked this one very much and really loved his card.....so that pleased me :)
I can't remember the make of the train die (sorry) but I cut it twice in black and in white and slightly off set them so a tinge of white showed. The back layer had to be solid (to show through the gaps) so I embossed in grey (rather than cut) and then fussy cut out the outline so I had a solid shape. (hope you get that).
I used distress inks for the scene and the little trees are Card-io. The sentiments are a mix of dies and the background was embossed with a Sheena texture die and inked ever so lightly just to highlight a bit.
OK full steam ahead for me now...lots to do on that list..........and not a lot crossed off yet!! I do hope you are all well and having a good week. It's been pretty hectic here of late with Birthdays and hubby having holiday from work...back to normal now...normal...whats that? I feel like I am on a treadmill....but not losing the weight!
Thank you so much for stopping by at this busy time, your visit is much appreciated.
See you again soon I hope.
