Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Tinsel Time


Hello, I am back again today with another Christmas card using the train and sentiments that are part of the Tinsel Time Collection. from Spellbinders. I hope you are enjoying seeing all my Christmas in August cards as much as I am enjoying making them. The tiny ornaments/bows and presents are also such a great addition to this set!

I thought about this card the longest as I wanted to do something a bit unexpected with the train. I think the cream and silver look so elegant together and I love the way it turned out. The piece of striped vellum I found in my stash was the final key that helped pull this card together.

Card Details: The darling train and cute ornaments and gifts are called the Holiday Express Etched Dies. The Tinsel Time greeting can be found in the Tinsel Time Sentiments set. I used a snowflake embossing folder from SU for the top of my card. The striped vellum I have had in my stash for eons and is also from SU. I used a strip of mirrored paper to divide my panels. The train engine window has a piece of vellum over it. The glitter paper really made this card come to life as well. I have dimensionals under my greeting.

Over at Simon Says Stamps they have a challenge starting today that is Christmas and they also are featuring Spellbinders products too. I will be linking my train up over there as well.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! Nanc’
