Santa Train

A Christmas in July slimline card using heavy printed card stock w/ pre-colored images & matching dies. Comes w/ sheets of the printed images along w/ scenes & snowflake papers to mix & match.

It’s my turn to host the Inspiration Challenge (IC917) & I thought we’d go w/ some Christmas in July, so it’s off to the Decorator’s Warehouse this week.

I came across THIS cute item & used it for my inspiration. It was perfect for this Winter Train slimline pad w/ matching dies. All of the cute images are pre-printed & pre-colored so I used their matching dies to cut them all out. I used a scenic night background (from the same pad) for the background & die cut it w/ the largest stitched slimline die. I cut a slightly larger white layer, then added the rest of the bg behind it. I thought the narrow white layer would break up the dark a little.

After I arranged the train and other cut outs, I attached them to the bg & popped up a few, here & there just a bit. I added the Merry Christmas w/ shadow along the top. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
