Christmas Train

I loved making this card. Something completely different to what I usually make. I'm going to send it to a little boy.

I have covered my 8x8in white card with Anna Marie red and white spotty card. I covered the bottom half with white card, I rounded all the corners with a punch. I then added gingham heart ribbon embellishment. I have die cut the sentiment using a Crafts Too die in green and red card and attached them to a white oval that I cut with a Presscut die. I slightly offset the sentiments when sticking them down to create a drop shadow. I have die cut the train using a Marianne die using red and green card. I die cut various dies for presents using Sue Wilson and X Cut dies to add to the train.
