Mark's Finest Papers
My card details:
I love the look of rolling hills made out of designer papers and thought it would be a perfect backdrop for this cute train. I chose very unconventional colors for a train, but really like the look. I think the one train car is filled with cotton candy! Oh baby!
I stamped the image onto white card stock using black memento ink and then colored with Copic markers using colors from the floral paper. I cut the hill shapes with a rotary cutter and then sewed the top edges of each hill. The train is cut out and popped up with foam tape and squares. I do love the fact that these stamps are so easy to shape, so I took advantage of that and stamped the Sorry This Is Late sentiment, matching the shape of the hill and using Lavender Lace ink. I cut stencils from scrap paper and sponged on the clouds with white craft ink.
On the inside, I covered the stitching with a panel of purple paper and stamped the same train image onto it using the Lavender Lace ink. I embossed both the top and bottom edges of the panel with Frills border embossing folder. I then stamped the other part of the sentiment to the bottom inside of the card. It reads: My Train of Thought Keep Derailing! Ha ha ha, that is a sentiment I will be using quite often!
I hope you like this card!
