Christmas Train

Sending Christmas Fun!

This is a special card for a very special little boy. Daniel loves trains and I hope he will get a kick out of this one. It features HIM as the train engineer (teddy bear version), pulling a load of Christmas presents and of course, his parents too.

3-Panel Children's Christmas Card

Card size is 12" wide by 5-1/2" high.

The greeting spreads out across all 3 panels. Letters are shiny silver stickers (much easier than trying to cut my own).

And that's where the time-saving ends. There are many layers to this card. It's one of those projects that seems simple enough to make, but requires a lot of patience! View the video below to see the dimension and shine better.

The family of bears are from a scrapbooking page I've had a long time. They were exactly the size I needed and their poses worked perfectly with my design vision.


I welcome your comments and questions!

  1. Those little bears are adorable and so perfect for this card. Just love it. I'm saving a screen shot for next Christmas. Actually, Grace, I'm thinking with a few changes, this is an adorable birthday card too. TFS. Merry Christmas.
