All Aboard!!

Hello again.  Today I'm sharing a card I had submitted to Paper Crafts for their World Cardmaking Day contest.  Unfortunately, no prizes on this one.  Oh well. 

I started out by stamping Mark's Finest Papers All Aboard (now retired) Speedy train 3/three times (and railroad crossing once) onto Mark's Finest Papers Corn Husk card stock; which is one of my favorites in PTI dark chocolate ink so I could cut two of the images out later.  Once all of my images were stamped, I started layering by alternating Stampin Up! close to cocoa, basic black and a Costco map designer paper I bought over a year ago. 

After I finished the layering, I stippled Stampin Up! creamy caramel ink around the edges of the card, layered images and then also over a couple of buttons I had planned on adding later.  After my images were cut out, I then added the train image by popping each layer up using Michael's pop dots and adding vintage brads to the final layer.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.
