Trifold Letter Shaped Card Using Cricut

Hello! We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog. Our challenge theme is creating Shaped Cards. I suggested this theme, thus, earning me blog post author too. When I came up with this theme, my idea is to create a non-traditionally shaped card. Anything but a rectangle and a square. I cannot wait to see what entries we will have for this challenge.

Our sponsor is Polkadoodles. When I was asked to suggest which images we can use, most of the images I requested are images that can be used in a Mother's Day themed-card. I always like creating one thing for two purposes. This is how I save time and maximize my creating effort.

I colored the image using Prisma color pencils. I fussy cut the image leaving a thin white border around the image.

I used the Cricut Design Space to create the letter shaped base card. I weld the letter M to the heart. I cut this twice. I ink blended the letters and the hearts with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide. I flicked water droplets to the inked area, then picked the water droplets with a dry paper towel.

I stamped the sentiments to one side of the inked heart, being mindful of placement since I want the image on the other side. The sentiment stamps are from Lawn Fawn Mom + Me stamp set. The sentiment stamps are in phrases. I did not want to cut the stamp so I masked the part which I don't need using a washi tape. After which, I removed the tape, wipe off any stray ink using my finger, then stamp the sentiment on the heart. I did not have a good impression on one of the words. No worries! I traced the letters using a thin black marker.

I adhered the image to the other side of the heart. I stacked the hearts on top of the other using a liquid glue to form the word Mom.

I added clear Wink of Stella to the bows and flowers. I also added Stickles to the heart on the letter envelope and to the flower centers.

You can fold this into a tri-fold card and it will fit a regular A2 sized envelope.

The card can also stand up if the recipient wishes to display this card.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Advance Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!

Please join our challenge which is live for the next two weeks. I cannot wait to see what your shaped card is. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
