I've made word shaped cards before using phrases from the Wild Card cart, but this time I started from scratch and used the 'text' feature to write the words "think" and "pink." I used the Carousel font since it has a lovely chunky shadow layer. I ungrouped the shadow letters and manipulated them until they overlapped and then welded them together. Using small triangle shapes, I covered up the smaller gaps between the letters so that the shape had a more cohesive look and welded again before duplicating and flipping the image. Aligning the two shapes one on top of the other, I welded them into one shape. I added thin rectangles to fill in the fold line and welded again. Lastly, I added the shadow layer from the ribbon from the Pink Journey cart and welded all the images together.
I think next time I try this technique, I'll fill in more of the gaps between the letters and see if that gives it a more structured look. (I want to try this with my grandchildren's names - won't that be fun?)
I wanted to keep the card as uncluttered as possible, but could not resist a rolled rose from the Flower Shoppe card and these tiny bead butterflies that have lived in my embellishment box for years just waiting for the right card!
One last look: -
Do go see here to see what the DT created for this challenge. Their imaginative projects are part of the reason this card was so challenging!
I am also linking my card with the BCA awareness Pinky Linky at DL Art.
Thanks for visiting with me today. : ) Christine
Oooops! I did not read the rules properly at BBTB2 and since this card doesn't have lingerie OR a lady, I removed it from the link up. Ah well! This card was a terrific learning process and I loved making it. : )
