Hello there, my nephew turned two this week. I bought him a train set for his birthday, so I thought it made sense to coordinate his card and make one with a train on. I pulled out my Clearly Besotted Full Steam Ahead stamp set (the original set that I used is now retired but the 2nd and 3rd editions are still available) and dies.
I started off by stamping the train and carriages using MFT inks. These were then cut out using the matching dies. I also stamped and cut the number 2 for the train, as well as the little smoke clouds. I then die cut two SSS Stitched Rectangle dies from white cardstock. I kept one intact and the other I cut using one of the ME landscape Trio dies. I took the cloud die from the same trio set and cut this from masking paper.
I added the masking paper cloud on top of the rectangle piece and blended TH Tumbled Glass Distress Ink over to make a sky. I then took the landscape piece and blended over TH Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn inks over. I then stamped the train track on to this using brown ink. The sentiment, from the CB Wild Thing stamp set, was stamped on to the sky piece with black ink. I then layered everything up, adding the train with foam tape. The panel was then added to a white A2 side fold card base.

Please Note - The Full Steam Ahead stamp set has retired. I have linked to the second and third editions for you to look at.
Funnily enough, I made my other nephew a train card when he was two as well. It is obviously the age for trains! :) Thanks so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a great rest of the weekend!
