Look Who’s 4!


Hi everyone,

I am making an early start on some birthday cards for my Grandson who will be 4 years old in May. I know that is a long way away right now, but I wanted to get one made to include in my daughter’s card stash I give her each Christmas.

For my card I am using the Sizzix Decorative Flip-its card die. What boy doesn’t love trains so I used The Stamps of Life’s Trains2Stamp and Numbers4Trains stamp set.


The smoke coming out of the train was created using one of the popcorn stamps from The Stamps of Life’s January Club Stamp set called Popcorn2Stamp. I have also used the coordinating die set to cut out each popcorn kernels which if you aren’t a Die Hard Club member you will be able to purchase on the 20th of this month. I think it works perfect for the smoke don’t you!

Stamps: Trains2Stamp; Numbers4Trains; Popcorn2Stamp – The Stamps of Life
Paper: White; Grey; Swagger DP – Fancy Pants
Other: Black Ink; Sizzix Decorative Flip-its Card; TSOL Popcorn Dies; Foam Stamps; Copics

So cute! That train is on my wish list, and I think it's BRILLIANT to use the popcorn as smoke.

This card is very cute, but I don't understand how you do the making to cut the bords but not the center. Is there a video ?
Thank you.
Have a good day.
