Speech Bubbles Birthday Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Hi everyone! :o)

Yesterday, Monday, January 20th, 2020, was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Speech Bubbles Birthday Card:o)


To make this card I CASEd my own card that I shared here on my blog in April 2016 (here).

I used stamps from two Jane's Doodles stamp sets: a speech bubble from 'Read All About It' and a sentiment from 'Anemone'.


How I made my card....

stamped speech bubbles directly on a white top folded card base.

I stamped the speech bubble in black on a black cardstock paper, cut the speech bubble shape out while the ink was still wet and heat embossed the sentiment in white on it.

Then I glued 3-D foams on the back of the speech bubble and glued it on the card.

As a finishing touch, I embellished the card with enamel dots in  three different violet tones and my card was finished. :o)


Card measurements:  95 mm x 133 mm (3 3/4" x 5 1/4")

List of supplies:

    White Snowflakes Christmas Card - Croatian Sentiment (CASology Week #359)


    Hi everyone! :o)


    My 2nd post today. If you missed the first one, just scroll down or follow a direct link here.


    Last Tuesday, January 7th, 2020, a new challenge started at CASology. This fortnight's cue word is Repeat. :o)


    I didn't have time to write blog post on time, but there's still time to join the challenge, which ends on Monday, January 20th, 2020, 9 AM, CST (UTC -6)


    And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), White Snowflakes Christmas Card. :o)


    Design defined: 
    An otherwise busy background can work in CAS design by using white on white & a very simple pop of color.


    How I made my card....

    I went with die cut technique on my card. My repeat element on the card are snowflakes. :o)

    I die cut snowflakes on a white cardstock panel. I glued 3-D foams on the panel and glued it on a  same size white side folded card base. I glued a white cardstock panel, slightly smaller than the card base, inside the card to make the card sturdier.

    Then I wrote a sentiment 'Sretan Božić' on my computer using Impact Label Fontprinted it out on the white cardstock paper, cut it out, colored edges with a black marker and got a lovely label, as if I had label maker. :o)

    Sretan Božić means Merry Christmas on Croatian. :o)

    Lastly, I glued 3-D foam squares on the back of the label, glued it on the card and my card was finished. :o)

    I really like how my card turned out. :o)


    Card measurements: 124 mm x 95 m(4 7/8" x 3 3/4")

    List of supplies:
    • Wiler Creativity Cutting Dies (gift from a dear friend Alice of Scrap & C... THANK YOU ALICE!!! ♥)
    • Sizzix Big Shot
    • Impact Label Font (Important: Read licences before downloading.)
