Hi Crafty Friends,
Today I am sharing a Train Easel Card that I created for my husband's birthday. It was such fun to make!
This card uses Anna Griffin's Antique Train Slimline Easel die set. I had been looking for this die set for ages, and unfortunately Anna Griffin doesn't sell to international customers and Scrapbook dot com didn't stock it either. Finally I checked eBay and found a seller there who was selling it new, so I took the opportunity to get it while I could.
I die cut the train from blue pearlescent cardstock and also gold and paper pieced the gold into the holes in the blue train. I die cut the easel portion from a smoky blue cardstock and then covered the base with patterned paper.
I had recently purchased a train wax seal stamp, which I also wanted to use. As it didn't look right on the front of the card, I decided to add it to the base. I can't be seen unless you open the card, but that is ok.
I die cut the train shadow die from white cardstock, so I could add to the back of the card. This gave me a place to stamp a sentiment and also write a personal greeting. I also added two images from the Kanban stamp set that I used on the front of the card.
