Love Train

 Hi To All My Crafty Friends!

It is Pam sharing with you on the blog today.

I don't know if you all are old enough to remember the song Love Train By the O'Jays.  It was an R&B hit back in 1972!  Now I am really dating myself! Anyway it is now playing in my head and that was the inpiration for this fun Valentine card.

Design Steps:

1.  Using the Circus Train die cut out the pieces on silver, white and black card stock. The little window and headlight I cut in white then colored with an C1 copic marker.  Next use the Be My Valentine Puppy die and cut out the pink and red hearts several times.  Turn the cage car over and glue down the hearts, add hearts to the wheels and car tops as shown
2.  For the base use a white A2 card, heart DP 4 x 5 1/4 and cut a white retangle using the second from the largest Stitched Scallop Rectangle die
3.  Glue the heart paper to the white card base then center and glue down the rectangle
4.  Pop up the train using dimensional dots or tape
5.  Add the sentiment layered on red card stock and finally add the sequins

6.  I decided to decorate the inside with some leftover paper and a little pink heart and your card is complete
