Hello crafty friends ~ It's Tinsel Time at Spellbinders and I'm so excited to be a part of it! Tinsel Time is Spellbinders newest release, and it is filled with super cute winter and holiday themed sets that are perfect to help you get started on your Christmas cards for the year. Truthfully, I am woefully behind in my Christmas cards, so I really need to ramp up the volume and get making.
I was so delighted when I received the Holiday Express dies in the mail. My dad loved trains so much. He volunteered for many years, to be "Mr. Conductor" at the Maine Narrow Guage Railroad's annual Polar Express rides.This picture was taken the Christmas before my dad passed away. I cherish this photograph of my dad, my daughter and me. It hangs on my refrigerator, and it brings me smiles of joy when I see it. You can see more pictures and read the full post about The Polar Express HERE on my blog.
My first card is a CAS slimline card, using a panel from Mini Slimline Envelope & Nested Card Creator die set. I wanted this train to look like a gingerbread train with white frosting, so I cut it out of both brown and white cardstock. I sponged on a bit of Gathered Twigs DOX ink to the edges of the brown pieces to look like the gingerbread was baked. It turned out so cute!
