Choo Choo Train

Stu asked me if I could make a birthday card for his friend's little boy for his birthday. I used red cardstock for the base card.The PP is K&Co Kazoo Kids as is the number 2 which I matted onto green Bazzill and red card.The train image is from the Making Tracks download from NitWit Collections,which I covered with glossy accents.Matted onto green Bazzill and red card.The ticket is also from the Making Tracks collection. I matted it onto some red card and stamped the Happy Birthday and Your Special Day with Woodware clear stamps and the name was using a Studio G alphabet.I ran a strip of red card through the Cutlebug with the Happy Birthday embossing folder.I finished it off with some buttons and ribbon.
I also decided to decorate the inside with matching K&Co Kazoo Kids PP. I printed the verse off
and mounted it onto green and red card again and added 4 brads. Stu drew the tracks for me and I cut them on the Craft Robo and made them into a little photo frame,to add a birthday picture to.The carriage was again from the Making Tracks collection and I again added glossy accents and stamped the sentiment with a Studio G clear stamp.
To finish it off i made a matching box and covered it with K&Co Kazoo Kids PP,tag and grand adhesion.
