Wouldn't this be a fun and simple card to slip into your young student's snack or lunch as a special surprise on their first day of school?
I kept this card purposefully simple to show that these images can hold their own without being colored. Just bold card stock and black embossing and this card pops and can be done in the time it takes your sleepy child to rouse on that first day of school.
If your child loves Thomas then be sure to head over to Cornish Heritage Farms today, the official release day for Thomas the Tank Engine!
