Ride the Birthday Train

Get on board the Birthday Train!  This was my first attempt at using Karen Burniston’s Train Pivot Panels and companion Train Elements.  Having made other of KB’s pivot panels I found it an easy assembly. (If you haven’t made a pivot panel card before, please look at her assembly videos.)

I used bright primary colors for the card using lots of scraps bits for the words and tiny decoration pieces. “Enjoy” and “ride” are double cut from red and blue papers and off-set to give a shadow effect.  The card base is from Karen Burniston’s Circle Tag Book Pop-up.  The red grosgrain ribbon hides the tiny portion of train’s “cow catcher” and tracks that show beyond the rounded edge.

Two pearl-like domed dots were used for the railroad crossing sign.(I removed these dots and replaced with red circles of cardstock when I sent the card to a two year old because of the fear he would try to eat them.) Bears are from KB’s Winter Animals die set.
