Bubbles of Love
A little treat
of sorts today as I have 2 cards – both very similar and both the kits were
designed by Paper Creator and were bought from https://printable-craftshop.com/boutique/
at an amazing price too...I paid just £1 each but when I came to checkout I
found it was a bogof so even better.
Rather than show
one today and the other tomorrow I decided they should be grouped as one – so we
have baby boy and baby girl – the kits are called Bubbles Of Love 6x6 card kit
So for both
cards I used an A4 sheet of 300gsm card which I folded in half using line 7 of
the blue score board the turn the card and score again to create the 6x6 card.
The base layer
was attached to the card front using double sided tape, and there are 2 panels
to each kit – one is a pale blue panel with pale blue bubbles on it and then
the other panel is a pink or blue mottled looking paper, so I made them both up
the same, the bubbles paper was stuck across the card and the coloured panel
stuck down the left side.
The topper was
mounted using double sided tape, it fitted nicely over the bubbles and between
the mottled panels. I have used double sided tape throughout the card so far.
was very easy to cut out making the kits perfect for new crafters as well as seasoned
The sticky pads
I am using now are by Stix2 and I like these as they are just 1 mm thick. This
gives the decoupage lift but doesn’t make it high and wobbly looking.
The sentiment is
the same on both cards – Bubbles of Love but obviously in the colour of the
card itself and the text is facing the baby – and I love the baby boy just look
at his sweet little face!!
The sheets were
very generous with the decoupage; in fact I only used 3 layers on each card and
left over 2 layers which I made into atcs so making this kits even more value
I bought and
made up the kits for no other reason than they were lovely to make up and
always handy to have just in case a new baby should come along!
The kits also
have lots of different sized bubbles to decorate the cards with – after all they
are called Bubbles of Love, but I haven’t used them yet as not sure I like them
on the cards, but when I come to add some glitter and glossy accents I may well
change my mind.
I hope the cards
made you smile with the cute babies – and if they did I'm glad I shared the
cards and cheered up your Sunday.
Be back again
tomorrow with something else – as yet don't know what and I don't think I will
be working on anything today as got a touch of headache and apart from that – I
can't be bothered with anything, could be because I was up and down all night
as I wasn't too well...but never mind!
