Watch out for Trains!



Here I've used the Choo Choo stamp set again from the great Spring Mini Catalogue. The 'Happy Birthday' stamp is also an individual stamp available from the same Catalogue. I made this card after passing a train crossing sign every day (though it could do with a puff of smoke...).
For a bolder image, try embossing with black embossing powder.

Project Recipe:
Stamp Set: Choo Choo, Birthday Wish
Ink: Basic Black
Cardstock: Basic Black, Yoyo Yellow
