I made this card as an order for a customers father who is a steam train fanatic. I know it's ok to show it now as his birthday was yesterday.
My remit for this card was just a card for dad with a steam train on it.
My first challenge was finding a nice picture of a steam train, I found a couple on the internet and a couple on cd's that I had. I chose this one as it was bright and colourful. I printed it out four times then used my nesties to cut out four decreasing sizes, then layered them up in pyramage fashion.
I matted on some textured gold card and used a backing paper from Sheena's cd. Then cut out two circle borders using two Spellbinder border dies put together, this is to highlight the train wheels( or what ever you call them).
I received a lovely comment from the customer saying she loved the card and her dad would be thrilled.
I am entering it into these challenges
