From the looks of it, you enjoyed my “guess the stamp I’m using” game on Monday. The response was so positive that I decided to play it again. *Rooooaaaarrrr!!!!!* I can hear your cheers from here. Yay! Ready? Oh, don’t be nervous. Even if you didn’t guess the one on Monday, you’ll definitely be able to guess this one. OK, so here goes. I’m not going to delay one more minute…because that would just be rude…making you wait and wait and read and read…OK! OK! Sorry!…Tell me what stamp I used to make this card:
If you guessed Papillon Potpourri, then you guessed wrong. Then answer is Bold Snowflake. I knew you’d get it! I have never been so proud of another human being in all my life. I was REALLY proud of Bandit when he learned to put away all his cat toys at the end of an exhausting day of play, but that’s a shadow of the pride I feel for you today.
Tips, Tricks and Reminders:
- Simple is Soothing. There’s something very relaxing about a simple color scheme. In this card, I only used two colors: Baja Breeze and Midnight Muse. On a white background, the Baja Breeze settles in quietly, while the Midnight Muse pops with excitement.
- Take it Up a Notch. There’s not a lot going on in the overall design of the card, but add a pearl and a dimensional, and the Midnight Muse snowflake really stands out in the crowd. If I didn’t already have a hate-hate relationship with glitter, I would have added some to either the background snowflakes or to the punched snowflake. I was too chicken, but I like the way it looks.
- Keep it Balanced. Balance is important with any card. That doesn’t mean that everything has to be centered. When you assess the weight of the images and the weight of the colors, all sides of the card should balance each other out. In this card, the heavy snowflake is only slightly off from center of the card. Do you see how the Midnight Muse sentiment in the bottom, right corner perfectly offsets the weight of the flakes?
