For You

Make It Mondays are always a treat at PTI!
This week Laurie shows us 3 ways of color blocking our cards.
I'm working on a series of felt ornaments for the grandkid's Christmas trees,
and had this felt car ornament ready.
Just perfect for a color block card front!

A simple bg was what was needed for my felt car. Lifted it up a bit 
in front to follow the grade.

The car is attached to the card front with a velcro disc.
A while back I bought a roll of these discs so I could attach blending
sponges on the backs of my ink pads. (Thank you Jeanne Jackna!)
So handy when your ink sponging a background.
The car/ornament stays in place until little hands peel it off 
to put on a tree.

  6. Nancy, this is so cute! A treasure they can keep forever!

  7. Super cute idea for the grands! With three boys in my life I need that car and discipline to complete them! I'm with you on putting the blending pads on each ink pad. Lizzie has a good idea but simplicity is my style.

  8. This is just about as cute as it your wonderful idea!

  9. ADORABLE, Nancy, and what a fun way to "gift" your ornaments!

  10. Adorable card & such a great idea to use a detachable felt ornament. What a great keepsake!

  11. This is so cute Nancy! What a clever idea making this sweet felt ornament removable. You are always thinking outside of the box!

  12. So adorable, Nancy! And the grandkids will love them. You're so clever to make this as a card with removable ornament.

  13. Brilliant idea! Thank you...I see velcro tabs in my future.


So happy you came for a visit. I love reading your comments!
