CASology Week 282: HUG

Welcome to Week 282 at CASology!

At first glance, this may look like a Valentine's Day card but I'm using it as a birthday card to send virtual hugs & kisses along with happy birthday wishes. Why just send one hug when I can send a couple, along with kisses, by using an abbreviated image to send the message?

The Lawn Fawn Scripty XOXO is die cut from a white panel and backed with a piece of transparency. Foam adhesive is added to the back, creating the walls for an empty space behind the die cut to hold the red micro beads and irridescent pink heart confetti.When creating a shaker space like this, run a Qtip dipped in talcum powder along the inside edge of the foam adhesive to stop the beads from adhering to the foam.

Check out the design team cards for wonderful inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. So simple but a design that packs a punch with the gorgeous background peeking through the die cut.

  2. I love how the beads and hearts give an ombre look to your die cut message, Jacquie.

  3. Excellent card! I love it. Thanks for the tip.

  4. I didn't realize at first that it was a shaker card....but it's super cute!

  5. Love your word shaker. So cute. Thanks for the reminder that words make great shaker cards too.
