I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.
Today I wanted to share with you all a Christmas Train Picture frame:)
This project took me days to complete and I was not as happy with the end results as I had hoped to be.
I used a couple of cricut cartridges to make the project.
I used the cricut craft room to make it:)
The trains are from the B Is For Boy Cricut Cartridge. I did cut the train a bit different by using hide contour to hide some parts that I did not want on the train. And I grouped a square in three places so it would cut out a spot for the pictures.
I used cereal box in the middle and coved both the front and the back with heavy card stock.
I flood filled the train with colors from the Mr. Frosty Imagine Cricut Cartridge.
I cut the track using Cricut Pop Up Neighborhood cartridge and flood filled it with a basic black.
I cut the tracks four times and glued all four pieces together to give the tracks some dimension.
The tree is from The Give A Hoot Cricut Cartridge. Flood filled with basic colors. I also cut several layers of card stock to make the tree sturdy.
The hills in background is from the Give A Hoot Cartridge too:)
I mixed glitter and flock together and applied it on the tree, the hill, the ground, and the tracks to give it a snow like effect.
Added some embellishments and I was done.
Oh I also cut white card stock and bent it slightly on one side. Glued the hill to it and the tracks and stuff so that the frame would stand up on its own.
It was a lot of fun to try something different but I am not 100 percent pleased at how it turned out. But definitely a learning experience and I hope each time I try something different it comes out better each time.
Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek:)
