All Aboard the Party Train! AR DT September Blog Hop

Welcome to the Creations by AR Design Team Blog Hop! This month the Creations by AR Team is sharing creations made with the new Party Train and Frame it Train Card Templates. These templates are created for use with cutting machines, there are also PDF files available for those who do not own a cutting machine. Be sure to keep reading to see how you can win one of these new templates!

I cut the Party Train template from 7Gypsies pattern paper, Riding Hood Red and Espresso card stock, using the Silhouette Cameo, to create a Holiday Themed Train.


Template - Creations by AR Party Train www.lisasomerville.com

I used the Snowflake Texture Fades Folder to emboss the engine cab, and sponged Malted Milk paint on all pieces for more of a distressed look.  The Train would be cute as a table centerpiece filled with candy, and also makes for a wonderful presentation when giving smaller gift boxes!

Card Stock - Riding Hood Red, Espresso
