 Harvey is off to preschool this month and I just HAD to make him and his little friend a card to celebrate! The Pete the Cat series is a big hit in our house, so when I heard there was a preschool book I jumped at the chance to order it from our local bookstore, Huckleberry Books

Karen over at Cards Stamps and Ink inspired me with her rainbow coloured cards a few weeks ago, so I pulled out my Tombow markers and set to work. I decided to create a slimline card so that I could spell out the word, "Preschool". I cut out my slimline panel using the largest of the Lawn Fawn Large Slimline with Sliders die. Next, I decided on my rainbow of Tombow markers and drew three lines of each colour diagonally. After covering the entire panel, I took the smaller of the dies from that set and cut out a rectangle in the centre of the panel. From that smaller rectangle, I centered "preschool" using Oliver's Stitched ABCs dies. 

I made two cards by using the negatives leftover from the dies. To centre the letters, I used the negative as a guide first before gluing it down on the second card.

I had an extra set of helper hands when photographing my cards! Gotta be quick these days :)

Paper: Solar White (Neenah)
Dies: Large Slimline with Sliders, Oliver's Stitched ABCs (Lawn Fawn)

  1. Such fun cards! It's genius how you got two cards out of one panel :-)

  2. This is a really cool post. I love this kitchen. It is completely the style that would fit refrigerator compressor reset
