My first card was for our train-crazy youngest grandson's fifth birthday. To make the background clouds I made a stencil from a piece of card, and then dusted Distress Ink with a brush around the edge. The picture of Thomas was found on the web. I cut an additional face which I adhered with foam pads for a 3d effect.

The second January card was made for my brother and sister-in-law for their wedding anniversary. The embossed background card was attached to the base card with foam pads and the heart was left free to swing.
