This week’s color challenge from The Paper Players (Blackberry Bliss, Baked Brown Sugar, Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke) gave me a perfect reason to reach for the Thanksgiving sentiment in Mingle all the Way. Here’s the card I made for this color challenge:
- Straighten it Out! Do you recognize this Designer Series Paper in the background of my card? If you know me, then you already know I’ve straightened out the diagonal lines found in Lullaby Designer Series Paper. With the solid band across the middle of the card, the lines in this beautiful paper look so much more striking horizontal.
- It Fits! A couple of weeks ago, I shared a card that paired the Note Tag punch with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. This card pairs one of the Chalk Talk Framelits with the same tag topper punch. I love the versatility of both tag topper punches, so it’s fun to play around with how the shapes work with other shapes. Layering is fun.
- Weighty Triplets. Three candy dots always make me happy. Three leaves in a tiny cluster make me smile, too. On the face of this card, I believe the candy dots carry just as much weight at the three leaves, helping to balance the card perfectly. Why? I’m no design scientist, but I think it’s because the dots are presented on a white space, while the leaves are shown on a striped, more visually distorted space. I hope that makes sense – I also hope it’s right. Either way, I like the way these triplets help to balance this card. Yippee!
