This card is for my nephew. His name is James and he's turning 3. You probably figured that out already! You know that I like to play with words and colour on my cards, so when I realized that James and three both have the same number of letters, I knew I wanted to make some kind of a grid and this card started to come together.
Not too quickly, though. I tried stamping directly onto a panel, but I couldn't get the letter blocks straight (despite a using a clear block that is supposed to let you see exactly where you're stamping). So I dug out the matching die for this Papertrey Alphabet and cut way more tiles than I needed, so I could have lots of do-overs!
Actually, doing it this way was quite soothing. When I messed up the final 'e', I just redid the tile rather than having to throw away the whole card. That made for a nice change! lol!
