Santa's Express - September Rudolph Days

Hi, Friends.....

Quick post here to share a fun project using some Christmas train stickers to make a long format card. Are you like have stickers in your stash that never get used? I am delighted to finally get this little train set put together and onto a card.

(Sadly I can't remember where I got these please forgive me if you are the kind friend who sent them to me. I try to make a note on the package where I got things, but this was unlabeled. Please let me know in the comments if you were the one!)

I splattered the background with Distress Inks and added some fun die cut snowflakes from scrap pieces of cardstock.
Supplies used include:
Christmas sentiment stamp from stash
Versafine ink in Crimson Red
Provo Craft "Santa's Express" stickers
Sweet Dixie - 4 Layering Snowflakes die set
Scraps of Vanilla Cardstock
Distress Inks in Faded Jeans and Fired Brick for splattering  

Hope you enjoyed this card.  Maybe it will inspire you to hunt through your sticker stash and use some for quick and fun cards.

  5. Your Santa Express train is so adorable! Great card.

    I just made 80 birthday cards for a charity draw that my eldest is organizing. They are all simple designs and I managed to use up supplies that are up to 15 years old. Brads, framed and diecut stickers, etc. Had so much fun making them.

    Thanks for taking part in the September Rudolph Days Challenge.
