Happy 16th Birthday

It's day three with Dawn Griffith as our Guest Blogger. Today she is showing you her creative use of a non-traditional item (the Match Box car) and incorporating it into her card design. Please click on any of the pictures for a closer view.
Ok Jeff, here is your new car Hee! Hee! Who doesn't want a new car when they turn 16? I thought I would use a Match Box car as the theme for this fun birthday card and I wanted to include a matching party blower. The car is inserted into the card and actually pops out of the window I created on the front of the card.

Even though the car has the number 16 on it, I still wanted to make a tag for the card and make it more personal. I just love how easy it was to assmble the wooden block with the Small Letters and Times New Roman letters. I created exactly what I wanted to say....Happy 16th Birthday Jeff.

The wooden block that comes in the Curlz Accessory Kit lets me work with whatever ink I have handy. This time I used the black & blue SU! markers to give 2 different colors to the monogram.

Thanks for stopping by and happy monogramming!
