Card Remake

Hello! We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. The challenge theme is Mother's Day And/Or Flowers. We have two sponsors for this challenge. 

I am remaking a card I made two years ago as seen above ( I was cleaning my supplies when I came across the extra cut out letters I created for that card. I decided to card-lift my own creation and make use of these cut outs.

My first version of this card was flimsy. Luckily, I have extra cut outs. For this card, I layered two cut outs to make it sturdy. I had to trim a sliver off the letters and the heart, on the side of the fold line, so there will be no issue when folding this trifold card. 

Instead of ink blending, I adhered floral patterned papers from My Mind's Eye to the letters and the heart. I trimmed off the excess.

I printed the image on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I colored the image with Prismacolor colored pencils. My inspiration in coloring the image is a Japanese maid waitress. I fussy cut the image, leaving a small white border around it. 

Back to the trifold shaped card, I added flowers and leaves to the letters. These were die cut using a Paper Smooches die. I spritz the flowers with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide spray. I layered these flowers to add more dimension.

The sentiment is from Trinity Stamps So Appreciative Stamp set. I created a sentiment strip by heat embossing the sentiment on one of the patterned papers in the paper pad. I die cut this using an Avery Elle Simple Sentiments Elle-ments die. I blended a dark gray ink to this strip. I wipe off the excess ink from the embossed sentiment. I die cut two more pieces of a scrap cardstock using this sentiment strip die. I adhered these cardstock strips to the back of the sentiment strip.

I adhered the image to the heart using foam adhesive. I adhered the sentiment next. I added Pretty Pink Posh gems to the heart. 

Funny that I have the same sentiment, although from different stamp sets, for  both cards. I also adhered the image to the left of the heart on both cards. I only found out about this after I searched for my first card in my blog so I can post it here. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see your creations in the challenge blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
