Base cardstock used: Basis Red and Green, Solar White, Pow Glitter Black, Mirri Sparkle Glitter Silver, Metallic gold
I took a Lori Whitlock card from the Silhouette Store and decided to make a Christmas Train card.

Since I saw the penguins in Jacob's arms, I decided that I wanted to add to the train on this card. But no matter how I played around with the animals and Santa, it just wasn't going to work with this train. The elements were all too small. So I grabbed the Santa Express Train set by Stinkin Cute Paper Piecings from the Silhouette store and switched the train out. 


I added the last cart by taking this and that from the Santa Express set, cause every Christmas has to have a tree! 

Once I had my final plans laid out, I got to cutting and detailing. 
The eBrush is great for adding soft highlights or heavy detail.
For the snow hills, I wanted to give it a gray detail to match the snowflake ridden sky on this card.
Next I grabbed my polka dot Darice embossing folder and ran each piece through the Sizzix Big Shot.
I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of the snow filled hills and matching sky. Once this was done, the card rolled out into what it became.
Finalized card:
