Created this Baby Boy Card using a Sizzix Train die that I have had for a long time; way before I had a Cricut I only had Sizzix dies. Cut the Train Engine out twice & paper pieced the Train Engine Wheels. Recycled plastic for Train Engine window. Used a Train travel theme. Used Tim Holtz sander. Used My Mind's Eye Train paper to complement the train theme. Stamped a Hero Arts ticket. Stamped a Pink by Design sentiment on ticket. Fussy cut the ticket out. Added hand calligraphy sentiment. Embossed the white cardstock with cloud embossing folder. Used TH Distress Ink on embossing. Added ribbon.
