Wild Card #23 -Thinking of You

This card is a "thinking bubble" shape, a very fun idea for a "thinking of you" card.
This wild card can be found on page 54 of the wildcard booklet.

Circled in red are the images and quantities cut for this card.
Each image was cut at 6" (I do not use the real dial size feature)

The front bubble image was cut on double sided paper, so I was able to fold it over and glue the flap down, it created a great frame look. I then glued this directly to the top of my white card.I discovered a really cool effect for my "thinking of you" word. I wanted the word to pop off the card, but I knew using pop-dots would look too bulky for me, so I tried using liquid applique, this is like puff paint after being heated with a heat tool it puffs up.

I added white liquid applique to the back side of my word, let it dry for a few hours, then heated using a heat tool, then I gently dabbed my wide two-way glue over the puffed applique then placed it onto the front of my card. This gave me clean raised words, just the look I wanted.

I added the cut out oval to the front of the signature
