HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I got a little busy towards the end of last year, and there were a few cards I didn't manage to post, so hopefully I'll get round to it soon!
I cannot believe that my cousin's going to be 1 in a week, last year flew by! So I've not been back from holiday long but I've been busy making this card, which I'm taking to the Playground with me!
I started by cutting the train shape from plain brown paper, and then the blue and white shape, which was glued on top. I then cut a small square for the window. I cut the top shape from plain orange paper, and then used my finger to add some browny-orange paint for effect. This was then stuck on with foam pads so it was raised. I did the steam by cutting some circles out of white paper and again painting it on with my finger. I stuck all of this onto some plain cream card and cut around it, with the fold being the left hand straight edge, and cut around the bit that sticks out at the top of the cab. I found some buttons and stuck them on with PVA glue, but I'm never sure how well the glue works, have any of you got any suggestions of ways to stick buttons on?!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas :)
