MFT December Release Countdown | Day 3

Hello! Welcome to Day 3 of the countdown to the December release from My Favorite Things! Today I have a card to share with you and a fun paper train filled with holiday candy! ;)

First up is the fun train that I created using the new Candy Train die-namics! This is such a fun die that cuts out the parts you need to actually assemble a train (it can be as long as you want) that can be filled with candy or other fun things!

I decided to make mine Christmas themed since it's that time of year, but these can be created for any event at any time of the year. I created all of my trains out a red cardstock and added the wheels from Steel Grey and some shiny foil paper I had, for the inner parts of the wheels.

I wrapped some silver and white striped washi tape around the tops of each train for some detail and then I added a Santa and the reindeer from the Jingle All The Way stamp set to the center train car. I love how fun and easy it is to dress up the train and make it look fun and festive! ;)

Once I had the train all assembled and adhered together (you'll want to use a really strong adhesive for the wheels since any weight you add to the train may make them fall off), I filled it with some fun holiday candies! ;)

Such a cute way to leave treats out in the house over the holidays or for holiday parties. You can decorate them to match any party decor.

My next project uses the new Wild Things stamp set and die-namics and an awesome new die that will be released tomorrow! ;)

The animals in this set are so adorable and so much fun to colour. I love the big tree image - it looks so great with the animals underneath it. I coloured everything with Copic markers and then created my scene to look like a polaroid photograph. ;)

I added the sentiment to the bottom area of the card with black ink and adhered the entire piece onto a piece of kraft cardstock with foam adhesive for some dimension since the rest of the card was so flat.

Thanks so much for stopping by for day 3 of the MFT New Release countdown! The new release products will officially be available on the My Favorite Things website at 10pm EST on December 2, 2014! Yay!!
