The Global Design Project is hosting a really big party this week – and you’re invited. Let me clarify – we’re hosting a Party themed challenge, and you’re invited to play along. Woo hoo! I went with a super-clean and super-simple card, but I love the outcome. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- You’re Invited to a Mashup. Do you recognize this sentiment? If you immediately said, “yes!” then you are either lying or absolutely amazing. This sentiment is a mashup of two sentiments in Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Annual Catalog. I used the “YOU’RE” from You’re So Sweet and the “Invited” from Marquee Messages to create one sentiment that was exactly what I wanted. You already know I adore the mixture of print and script, so I was thrilled when I found this combination.
- More White Space, Please. I really wanted to big, white circle to pop on this card – that’s where the sentiment is, right? My original design had more dark paper in the background (instead of the panel of Whisper White). While I love this combination of colors, it was too dark. When I tried the panel of white in the background, I realized that it didn’t take away from the circle – instead, it helped the circle to pop even more. Tip: Play around with white space – it might help you out more than you think.
- Rich Color Combination. I love this rich combination of Emerald Envy and Island Indigo. The colors are playfully formal together, don’t you think? The main panel of this card is covered with a fun design from Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper. While the paper doesn’t have any Emerald Envy in it, I thought it paired beautifully. If you also like this combination of colors, feel free to save this:

I hope you’ll pop over to the Global Design Project site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
