Ombré Effect Birthday Cards (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made these Ombr
é Effect Birthday Cards.

I love bold sentiments and these I used from 'CAKE!' stamp set are gorgeous! Perfect to create CAS cards. :o)

I have so many upcoming birthdays and, with current working schedule, not so much time to create, so I made two same CAS design cards. Quick and very easy to create. I was inspired with Season's Greetings Blue Card I made in November last year.

heat embossed with white embossing powder sentiments from beautiful Jane's Doodles stamp set, 'CAKE!'on white cardstock panels. Then I blended panels with Distress Inks creating Ombré Effect. For each card I used only one color.

When I was satisfied with blended colors, I trimmed both panels a bit, because I don't like distressed edges on panels when placing them on white card bases. :o)

I glued 3-D foams on panels and glued them on top folded white card bases.

White enamel dots to add more interest to cards, and my cards were finished. :o)

Cards dimensions: 107 mm x 139 mm (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")
