Birthday toot with Thomas cards

Thomas the tank Engine is always a favorite with little boys and two of my wee friends are no different!  I paper pieced and punched two of the same little Thomas’ and then added them to different fancy fold cards.

The first one is an easel style card and sits up against the tracks to hold the easel in place. I didn’t have a stone type image for the gravel under the tracks so I used the rubber on the end of a  pencil. Worked pretty well huh! I hand cut the grass border too.

Number two was a side double step card with Thomas on the front step and the train house  on the back one. Thought it looked a bit bare on the side so I added the stop go lights and then a strip of Attic Boutique paper across the base. Both cards use the Birthday sentiment from Petite Pairs which is a great set as it covers lots of occasions AND has a matching sentiment for inside the card. Check it out on page 105 of the Idea Book and Catalogue.
