It’s Thursday again!  Time for another entry to my Throwback Thursday posts. If you are new to my blog, a few weeks ago I started a series focusing on how I have grown as an artist.  I find a card I made years ago and remake it with current products and step up the design to be a bit more elaborate.

This week I have chosen a card that was super simple to improve upon.

I would say that this card is probably one of the more simple cards I have ever made.  It is just a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the sentiment on Whisper White and framed in Early Espresso.

In keeping with the dad theme, here is my re-make.

I added some layering and moved the sentiment into the center.  At first I placed the trophy in the same spot as the “dear father” on the brown card but I preferred it in the center on this one.

Here are the supplies I used in making the card.

I couldn’t find a good DSP I liked that was masculine enough so I created my own with the Touches of Texture stamp set.  All the other images are from World’s Best Trophy stamp set.

I personally think adding sponging on the edges of some of the paper helps the card look more polished.  🙂

One way I like to make a card more interesting  is to add layers and images on the inside.

Here is a comparison of the two side by side. I  know they are not exactly the same layout but this was how I decided to interpret the step up and update to current products for my Throwback Thursday. 😊

Thank you so much for visiting!  Hope you enjoyed today’s post.  🙂  If you would like to be one of the first to be notified when I have posted a new blog, please subscribe to my blog today!  You can find where to do this at the bottom of the page.
