Happy Thursday everyone! Today I am writing my 99th blog post! I have been a blog stalker since I got my first Cricut in 2006 but I only became brave enough to start blogging these past 2 years. There are so many talented bloggers like you and I continue to admire all the amazing things that you all do. I feel blessed that we have this opportunity to share and get inspired. I don't have any crafty friends in my day to day life so having my blog friends means so much to me. I am so thankful for those of you who come by and visit!
I have a tag card I want to share with you!
When I saw this train file from Too Cute By Jessica I knew I wanted to make it! I don't use a ton of die cuts with my scrapbooking and wondered how in the heck was I going to fit this on a card. So I thought to myself I need to do a triple fold card somehow. I remembered there were some fabulous cuts on my Fabulous Finds cartridge and chose this cut for my card base. I cut it at fit to page and it is about 6.25 inches tall and folds up to be 3.75" wide.
When I showed this to my hubby he said to me "You should add some smoke to the train." Duh! I forgot to add the little poofs of smoke!!! Darn it! Well I did after and you will have to trust me that it looks even better, lol! Don't you hate when you lose or misplace little pieces or forget to add them?
The sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva's. I used a lot of card stock scraps for this and the Christmas papers are from Recollections and a Mambi Sheets stack.
I added sparkle to the candy wheels and snow using my Wink of Stella pen and popped some of the cuts up with foam tape for dimension. I used some snowflake brads and the peppermint candy is from Recollections.
Here are the stamps and file I used:
