Good morning to all...

Here's what I'm doing with the postcard art that Maria posted recently as a possible inspiration piece for a "flattie"...it was indeed "inspiring"...and i had to start it right away...

Here's a link to her original post...https://www.cardboardchristmas.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1508

I'll post updates as the project moves along...

my very best regards...

Howard...

I can't believe you already have them cut out already. This is another perfect flattie project. I'm glad Maria was able to find these.

greetings to all...

this was the most challenging flattie i've made so far...i guess i brought it on myself making the four figures into one flattie rather than four separate figures...lesson learned... ;)

my very best regards...
