Thomas the Tank Engine’s Happy Birthday

Grandson Liam's birthday was Saturday, and like most 3-year-old boys, he loves Thomas the Train!  This card, designed by Stampin' Up! demonstrator Pixie Elletson, was a must!  I added a few touches to make it my own, but basically followed her measurements for this terrific punch art idea.

Needless to say, it ended up being quite a large card.  I designed the track to fold forward and lie on the table when the card is standing.  Two hearts punched from Whisper White card stock and the Full Heart Punch serve as Thomas's smoke.  The Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder for the Big Shot added some interest, and I found a piece of chipboard from a long-ago On Board Chipboard set to serve as the No. 3 on the front of the engine.  I colored it with Brilliant Blue Craft Ink, layered on some Clear Embossing Powder and used the Heat Tool to set it.  Inside I wrote a very corny saying, but perfect for this adorable card — "Chugga-chugga choo choo.  Happy Birthday to You!"

Here's the birthday boy enjoying helping the entire family put up a new play set in his back yard, a gift from his mom and dad.

Some of the wonderful colors used to create Thomas are retiring.  Get your Brilliant Blue, Summer Sun, Bordering Blue and Creamy Caramel card stocks before they're gone forever!
