2-Year-Old Train Birthday Card


My little neighbor just turned two and was having a train themed birthday party, so I made him this train birthday card.  To be able to fit a good size train on to my card base, I sized the card to fit in a regular business envelope, at 4" x 9 1/4".  The train is an Echo Park cut from the Silhouette Online Store, with a few modifications.


I replaced one of the train cars with a birthday cake, which I took from the Lori Whitlock A2 Box Card:  Birthday cut.  Then I used some sewing machine thread to tie a birthday banner to the engine.  The banner was cut with a die from My Creative Time's Fly Away With Me Sentiments stamp and die set and stamped with a sentiment from MCT's Many Greetings.


I replaced another train car with a cute present, made with a Miss Kate Cuttables cut.  Lastly, I stamped Julien's name on the caboose with stamps from MCT's Just Simply Live stamp set.
