Sketch Inspired Mother's Day Card

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. I have a tons of inspiration in creating this card. I am able to join blog challenges again. I miss doing this. This is the reason why I got myself hooked into cardmaking and also into creating a blog. Designing commitments put me on a standstill in participating in blog challenges. I am very glad that I was able to fulfill my responsibilities quick enough to give me some extra time to create and participate in challenge blogs.

I enjoyed putting this card together. The difficult part is choosing the right elements that complement each other. I got my color theme for rainbow by doing a search online for a three colored rainbow. Luckily, I have a 6x6 patterned paper pad that includes all the colors of the three colored rainbow. Knowing your crafting products helps lot in creating a card. I have products from way back that I still use up to now. Another reason why I enjoyed creating this card is that I  was able to do some stitching on this card which I enjoy a lot. 

I was planning to use a neutral colored patterned paper from the same 6x6 patterned paper pad I used for the rainbows. I already die cut the letters but I didn't like the way it looked with the patterned paper rainbow die cuts. I die cut some plain cardstock and that seem to do the trick of making the sentiment pop. I adhered the patterned paper letter die cuts to the back of the cardstock letter die cuts to add a bit of dimension. Might as well put these die cut letters to good use rather than stashing it in my scrap box.

Off setting the alphabet die cuts gives it a different look, just like the flower die cut. Replacing letters with image die cuts can make the sentiment look playful. 

Adding embossing to a plain panel can add more interest to the card. Flicking paint can give it more texture and not too clean looking. I think I overdid my splatters. What do you think?

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
