Spectacular Birthday

Here’s my card for this week’s challenge at CAS(e) this Sketch. This birthday card came together quickly using the Spectacular stamp set and coordinating Spectacles die from Taylored Expressions.

I stamped the set’s eye chart style birthday sentiment in gray ink on a white rounded edge panel. The stamped panel is adhered to a light blue card base over a chevron patterned paper panel. I picked a paper with some text on it to go with the eye chart. Once the sentiment was in place, I added a pair of die cut eyeglasses using foam tape, positioning them carefully so that one of the letters from the chart style sentiment was visible through the lens of the glasses.

Materials Used:
Spectacular stamp set, Spectacles dies (Taylored Expressions); Memento London Fog ink (Tsukineko); Whisper White cardstock (Stampin’ Up!); Steel Blue cardstock (My Favorite Things); Sea Glass cardstock (Avery Elle); Buttercup 6x6 paper pad (Lily Bee Design); Rounded Rectangle die (WPlus9); foam tape


  1. Fabulous outside the box thinking Lori, love your card!
    Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS(E) this Sketch this week!
