Choo Choo!

I just found a bunch of projects that never made it to my blog , so there should be lots of new content in the coming weeks!

Anyway, last year, my great nephews were into into trains.  (You may remember the card I made for Thomas.) For Paul's card, I decided to put my Cricut to work again.  Here's the card:

 I used foam dimensionals to pop the train off the track.  Glossy accents added texture to the wheels.  And, the cloud proved to be the perfect place to stamp the sentiment.  (That seems to be my thing.  LOL!)  Here's a closer look.
 For the gift bag, I repurposed a navy American Eagle shopping bag by adding a cardstock layer that was stamped with all different emergency vehicles.  I added a border that was punched from a scrap of paper and some stickers to personalize it.  Here's the gift bag:
Both nephews turned three this year and Disney Cars is their thing. Thanks to Google, I found the perfect stamp and will share those cards soon.
