Rusty Old Train

Good monday morning to all. Here is my take on the  "Make It Manly" for the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge.  It is always nice to do a mans card for the special men in our lives. My hubby always appreciates my hand made cards so I enjoy making them for him as well as for my son and grandsons. This is the new Choo Choo  train from the last release. I cut it from a paper that makes it look old and rusty. This train is way too kool and so detailed. I put some mountains in the background and used bakers twine which worked well for the train tracks. The Dimensional Sm Leaves #1 really worked well to embellish the corners. I inked the leaf dies and then cut them out giving them even more detail. Krinkling them a bit really makes them look so real. The Happy Birthday words are such a nice font and are so easy to cut out and appy to a card. Well hope this gives you some ideas for manly cards and that you will be inspired to come on over to Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge and join the fun with a chance to win a $20.00 store certificate. Also stop by Cheery Lynn Inspirational Blog for a peek at some awesome creations.
