Train Tracks


Did you know that June 12th is Machine Day?   Because of that, Party Time Tuesdays is challenging you to make a Father's Day card using something mechanical on it.  Here I have used the image Train Tracks by our sponsor The Stamping Boutique.  I copied it 3 times on a page in Word to keep my images the same size.  Then I colored each one differently, red, green and blue before printing.  After that it was just a matter of cutting them out with 3 different sized circle nestabilities, sponging the edges in black ink for definition and stacking them up with some foam tape for dimension.

Designer papers, dew drops and the flourish rub-on are all from our month-long sponsor The Robin's Nest.  I thought by using the cloud paper on it's side, it made the dark clouds look like puffs of smoke from the train engine.

As always, thanks for the visit and I hope you'll have time to party with our challenge this week at Party Time Tuesdays!

I love this card. I live with a bunch of train guys but when it comes to ideas for cards with them I'm at a bit of a loss. I love the way you used the train tracks and with a simple lay-out, but it works so well!
