Toot Toot – It’s Thomas & the Cameo

I’ve made a few Thomas cards across my crafting time.  He’s a tricky customer for punch art because of the unique shape of his train cab.

This week I needed a Thomas card for a special little man and went searching the net to see if I could find an SVG cut for my Cameo to help me out with the punch art side of things.


Success!!!  {kind of..}

You can find the download via the Cute As A Fox page (note: it redirects to a download page and there are some requests to sign in etc…. nothing is ever as easy as it seems!).

Unfortunately, the SVG download didn’t work in the Cameo software (I’ve now read the comments on the post and it seems the SVG is designed for a Cricut).

Not to be deterred from my plan, and a little problem solving later, I did manage to use the images from the pdf instructions & the trace function in the Cameo software to get all the pieces.  Slightly frustrating, but now that I have it all sorted, I’ve saved it for future Thomas cards.

Here’s is the end result of the process.  You’ll see that I still chose to print & punch out Thomas’s face – I think he looks more authentic with his actual face rather than attempting to do this with shapes & punches.

Thomas the Tank Engine Stampin' Up! & Silhouette Cameo hybrid card. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

The Thomas font is called Flange BQ and you can download it here.

I love how well my Stampin’ Up! range works with anything I want to cut in the Cameo to create cards with that extra special touch.

And how gorgeous is the glittery 2 using the Large Numbers Framelits.  It’s hybrid card making at its best!  Kelly x
