Christmas is coming to town!

Yes, Christmas is coming faster than I can believe. Once September arrives, it seems like the holidays are just around the corner.  This cute Christmas Train from the Stampendous July Catalog says it all!

This week the theme for the Stampdenous Design Team is "All in One", those stamps and stencils that have an image and a sentiment all in one design. This helps speed your card making during the busy holiday season.

W159 Christmas Train
To create this simple card follow these instructions:

W159 Christmas Train
MPW811 Mixed Media White Paper

Bazzill Basics cardstock Sea Water
Neenah Papers Classic Linen Cover Red Pepper 80#
Chameleon Color Tones - CG8, BK4, BL3, BL6, RD4, YG3, CB, D
May Arts Ribbon Black 1/4" ric-rak AAR10
Beacon Adhesive Fabri-Tac
Zutter 1/2" corner rounder
Double-sided tape


Step 1:  Fold a 5" x 10" piece of blue cardstock in half to form a square, top fold card, round the top corners

Step 2:  Stamp the Christmas Train image on Mixed Media White Paper and color with Chameleon pens, trim around the image and edge with the black marker

Step 3:  Cut another piece of white paper 4" x 4 1/4", round the top corners, use the Chameleon Detail pen and a ruler to create a background similar to the train background, tape to a red mat that has matching rounded top corners

Step 4:  Use Fabri-Tac to add two rows of ric-rak near the bottom, tape the train above it

Darling card, Louise. I am almost ready to be brave and make a plaid pattern now that I've seen your amazing-ness with a ruler and pen.
