Here Comes Christmas - Color Dare #520 - TicTacToe

This is my Design Team project for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #520 "TicTacToe" (Column 3: Scarlet, Pine, Toffee) and using CTMH paperpack Christmas Story.  Well here it is again going into November and I have only put a dent in my Christmas cards; so here's one less that I need to make. However, I love this stamp set and may do a couple more.   

Heart2Heart has a challenge "Create a Cool Background"... not sure if this means inked background as the requirement; but I used patterned paper for my "Cool"  Winter background.   

Stamped two sets of Santa's rail cars, sign and gift images on white cardstock, die cut images, colored first set with Copic markers, cut and colored parts of the second set to adhere with thin foam tape to the first set for dimension. Phew, a lot of fussy-cutting.  

For my background... used a dotted patterned paper for a light snow fall and a patterned paper for snow with a die cut stitched track for Santa's train with car filled with gifts.  Sentiment added at bottom corner of screen.

I really love that train. I really want to have that stamp set too... it would have been perfect when my son was small, he loved trains and he had a Thomas the tank engine party when he was 4 :)
