All Aboard the Love Train!

I have been creating Valentine Cards lately, and I wanted to work on an SVG file to go along with the theme. so I made this little Love Train. This is sized for my 5x5 card base, but could be shrunk down a bit more for an A2 card, or made larger for a scrapbook layout. The cute engineer bear I "lifted" from a  famous teddy bear site that shall remain nameless (*ahem* .....Vermont sure is snowy this time of year, isn't it?! ). It was an image they use to promote an outfit they make for their bear dolls. I sized it, adjusted some things in PSE to suit my needs, printed and cut him out by hand. Then I tucked him into the train window. I think he's adorable, and hope that you like him on my card!
The train is made up of several cuts (thirteen in all, I think). I embossed the train body with a Cuttlebug folder called Diamonds in the Rough. The heart base layer, smoke stack trim and dome are embossed with the Cuttlebug Victorian folder. I did some inking along all of my edges, as well as some faux stitching with a black journaling marker. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you come back again!
