Happy Birthday Kellen
I did however manage to make a couple of cards in spite of the chaos going on in my home (kitchen redo, new windows, minor basement flooding and a short vacation--whew!)
I had to make my great-nephews card for his first birthday and I went right to the Train Tracks set from Papertrey (after all that set was bought mainly for Kellen's cards anyway). What a fun set it is. I cut out the kraft paper using the co-ordinating dies and then stamped them accordingly. I stamped and colored the gift packages and trimmed them out and placed them on the flat bed. I found ribbon to use for the train tracks , a little checked ribbon on the blue card and then I found the birthday ribbon for the other and it worked out perfectly. I used Papertreys Road Trip DP for the card on the right and I just used blue card stock for the base on the other without any DP. Stamped the 'steam' and the sentiment and was done. Kellen of course loved it and spent a lot of time showing it off to everyone (she said tongue in cheek).
I'm pleased with how it turned out and I hope you like also. Thanks for stopping by.
