Springy trains

When a friend saw my card with wobbly dinosaurs, she asked if I could make a card with trains on springs. Fortunately, I had some Papermania mini springs and found up a Hunkydory topper and a railcard padded sticker that seemed suitable. The backing paper is Basic Grey Obscure, on to which I printed the wavy railway line. The sentiments were from Kanban.

The card doesn't look as dull in real life!

A birthday insert is being added inside.

This is for:

  3. Great card...the springs are a great idea. Love the colours and the track portion is so realistic.

    Little Mr P used to play with his tracks for hours at a time...sadly he has moved on to lego! How I preferred to step over intricate miles of wooden Thomas the train tracks rather than step on teensy lego! Ouch!!!

  4. Brilliant male card Hazel, fab images and colours, Kate x
