This card was inspired by the mini catalogue and one of my sidelines, Trish Hollis. The cutting out took a little bit of time, more like a whole day of cutting out. But it was worth it in the end. I love the card, I’m not sure if I can bear to give it away.
Here I took an A4 Whisper White CS, and cut it at 5″ wide. Then I folded the card into quarters in length. The Real Red mat is from a 12×12″ cardstock that I have cut out to be the height of a normal A6 card. The train tracks were made using the Right on Track wheel in basic gray. I use the bold brights for the train segments from the Choo Choo stamp set, and the animals are from the Wild About You stamp set. The rolling hills were made by drawing on a scrap piece of paper and then using it as a mask for both the hills and the sky, using pastels.
