Let's Chat

Happy Friday! 

I just wanted to share a fun little card for one the Card Creations Challenges over at the Moxie Fab World Blog.  This is for the Speech Bubble Challenge.   

I thought it would be fun to make a card based on the iMessage iPhone app.  Here's my take: 

I cut out a square of green paper and rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper.  I noticed that the app actually has some subtle stripes that run diagonally, so I stamped the Notebook Paper stamp from Paper Smooches with VersaMark to get the subtle green color I wanted.  Next I punched out 2 circles and stamped/embossed the number 1 (Smitty's ABC's, LF).  I then die cut a speech bubble from my Lawn Fawn dies out of white paper and vellum. 

I adhered the vellum slightly off to give the speech bubble some dimension as though it was shaded with a marker.  I think it's kind've a neat look.  The speech bubble and circles are adhered with foam tape. 

I then added my sentiment (Perpetual Bliss, Paper Smooches) and some twine (LF) to finish off the card. 


And since "Anything Goes" over at the Simon Says Stamp blog, I'll link this card up as well. 

Thanks so much for visiting today!  Hope you have a nice evening!
