For the clouds I punched a scalloped oval from scrap paper and sponged on Baja Breeze ink using the punch as a mask. After sponging the Baja Breeze I sponged some Pacific Point ink over it. After sponging some Old Olive across the bottom of the blue strip and adding 3 star brads on the top left corner I was ready to adhere it to the Old Olive card front.
After rolling the Right on Track wheel across the bottom of the Old Olive I was ready for the fun yet tricky part. I used the Word Window punch to punch 2 pieces from the middle of the card (save these pieces). I trimmed off the little notch out of the middle so the pennies don’t get snagged on them when you slide the train. It really bugged me (perfectionist that I am) that some white showed through on the first card so I placed the green card front on the white card and marked where the ends of the slot were. Then I adhered a strip of green cardstock there so there wouldn’t be any white showing through. Like a 3 year old is going to notice. . .
I took the 2 green pieces that I punched out and trimmed a little off each end and glued them end to end to the back of the train to hide where I am going to put the pennies. Seriously, if white can’t show through, why would the pennies be able to show through??? Besides, if the child knows they are there the card may have to come apart! Place a Stampin’ Dimensional to this strip about 3/4” from each end.
I printed out and cut up all those names for the drawing. There were a lot who didn't post their email addresses. I hope most of them were Stampin' Up demonstrators who just wanted to comment and didn't want a prize. The 2 winners will have their choice of one of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets. I will email them seperately to get their addresses but you all want to know who won so their names are Terri H. and Denise KF!
