Keeping it together can be easy


It's another day of our partnership with Scrapbook Adhesives and I'm bringing a little wintry breeze into the hop today with Stampendous' Train Postcard. If you noticed some extra dark shading, well that's just me and my utility knife getting focused on the train so we could use a variety of foam dots by Scrapbook Adhesives.


I stamped the postcard twice, colored one and cut out around the oval frame and colored the second one with a little bit of shading around the edges and the postage stamp. The fun part about this is the super easy dimension you can get when you cut around part of the image and pull it through a slice in the popped up layer. It really looks like the train is coming our way.

I used my Quickie Glue Pen to add a small amount of glitter around the berries, trees, water, train and oval border. The card surprisingly glimmers a lot with only a tiny bit of the Stampendous Micro Glitter.

  3. Such a lovely vintage card! I am a little confused by the bit about "pull it through a slice in the popped up layer". Is there any chance you could elaborate?

    1. Pandora, I wrote my post a little quick and so I apologize for not catching this confusing part of my post. I stamped a second image for the oval and colored it. I used a utility knife to cut ("a slice/slit") a hole at the back of the train and then a line towards the front of the train big enough for the train on the bottom layer to slide through to be adhered with the foam dots.

      I hope that makes it clear.
