A-"maze"-ing Card

The plastic maze disks were purchased on the Stampin' Up clearance page online.  I thought they'd make cute kids cards for Operation Write Home.


Using Make The Cut, I cut the card bases and fronts separately, then attached the printed paper onto the card base.

The sentiment was printed on my computer.

I wanted the maze puzzle to be inside the card and just peek through the card front.








After taking the photos, I added a blue circle around the maze.  The clear plastic just didn't show up well on the white background.










I lined up the puzzle with the opening in the card front so it would fit snugly inside the opening.  I'll send a piece of thin foam along with these cards to protect the plastic mazes.

This is a cool card Linda! I didn't know you use use stuff like this for the soldiers. I think soldiers with kids are really going to scarf these right up to send home to their youngin's!

I'm only sending 4 in this box, Brenda, with a note asking if they're okay. I did tuck in a 4x4 piece of thin foam to pad the maze but am still not sure they'll be okay.
