How to make

  1. Using the Tattered Lace Centre Stepper Card die, cut the bases of the card using black cardstock. Select the appropriate sized matting and layering rectangles to die cut two pieces of light blue cardstock for the side panels, a strip for the base and a large piece for the central panel. These are all made to ensure you have an even black border around the edge of the rectangle.
  2. Using forest green cardstock, cut with the Tattered Lace steam train die using a die cutting machine and the correct combination of cutting plates. Apply Tattered Lace detail glue to the reverse of the train and adhere to a piece of caramel cardstock, for the background colour. Leave to dry then carefully cut around the edge of the train using craft scissors.
  3. Take a piece of brown cardstock and die cut a Tattered Lace fence. Cut the pointed edge from the top of the fence posts to form a train track and glue to the bottom strip of the stepper card, leaving the edges to hang over slightly.
  4. Using the clouds from the Tattered Lace Travel Embellishments set, die cut two clouds from black cardstock and fix to the middle and back train carriage with only the top half on show to resemble coal. Attach the train to the front strip and decorate the wheels with self-adhesive pearls.
  5. With the same cloud die, cut a selection of clouds using white cardstock. Form a large cloud and attach to the top of the central panel using foam pads. Attach another small cloud to the side panel then cut three small clouds. Attach these to a piece of clear acetate and fix one end under the clouds and the other to the front of the train.
  6. Using the small scalloped rectangles from the Centre Stepper die set, cut two rectangles, the larger in black and the smaller in white. Using black ink, stamp a Father’s Day sentiment to the centre and then matt the die cuts above the train using foam pads.
