Comic Relief

I had the idea to create a comic strip to showcase this fabulous Kaboom which I stamped and die cut using the WMS Kaboom die set and matching die. So I drew up some rectangles using the Silhouette Studio software and cut this panel with the Cameo.  I embossed it with black embossing powder for extra wow.  I've used the opening lines from the old Superman television series as the story line and I used Wordart in Word to create the text passages using a fabulous font called SF Comic Strip.

I have to admit the WMS Kaboom and Halftone Backgrounds sets are so much fun to play with that I got a little carried away with the background.  The story finishes more simply inside.  It could be either a Father's Day card or a birthday card for a super dad (such as mine who turns 91 next month).

As I was catching up on some blogs the other day, I came across the CAS-ology Week 148 cue card which is story and I thought I'd enter this card in the challenge there even though that background is a little busy.

Thanks for stopping by


  1. Hi Kate, love this card idea and how you tell the story, it's great! TFS Heike

  2. Hey Kate! Such an awesome idea!! Comic do tell a story. Very creative!!!Thanks for playing along with us this week at CASology.

  3. I'm not sure your card is technically CAS, Kate, but when I started reading, I immediately thought of the "story" word at CASology, so I'm glad you entered anyway. (As far as I'm concerned, you should be a designer!) This is very, very, very clever, so perfectly executed, and simply awesome for a Father's Day or Father's Birthday card!! Hugs, Darnell

  4. What a great idea Kate! Love how you've done the 'kaboom' - it totally pops off the card. So love this set...I think it might be on my next order!

  5. A fantastic card. Love the idea, it's so original. Your dad will love it

  6. Fabulous card, love this idea :)


I'd love to hear from you !!!
