Hi, everyone!  I've been talking about a Sponge Bob card I made for my friend at work. And here it is.  This is for her grandson's 1st birthday.  He stops every time the show comes on. LOL

This is an accordion style card that you can find the instructions on Splitcoaststampers.  Really easy to make, but please make sure you cut the panel in the correct direction.  If you don't the pieces won't fit together.  Go ahead and ask me how I know!  LOL  Anyway, the characters are coloring pages I captured from the internet and colored with copics, the letters I cut with my Sizzix, and I used some clear dew drops to make it look like it was bubbles.

Here is the back.  I didn't take notice to the way the characters looked from the back until it was all put together.  So my recommendation is to back them with matching papers.  They sentiment was printed on my computer and I stamped the 2014 in the bottom corner. 

I had a lot of fun making this card.  Wasn't really sure how it would turn out until I was finished!  Thanks for taking a look.

I had a special request to make a Harry Potter card for a 21st birthday.  The style is simple, but they loved it!  I used photo paper to make the colors of the castle and owl pop, used a MS punch for the corners, a "happy birthday" sticker and some generic paper from my stash.  I made the scroll that Hegwig is carrying.  For the inside, I printed a picture of the Gryffindor insignia the labels and scarf I cut from my Slice.  I'm still muddling through trying to use my Slice every time I can, but it's giving me some grief, so I've ordered a new.  Got a great deal for 1/2 off.  I hope it works better.  The sentiment says "It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.  Albus Dumbledor". 

Thanks for looking!
