Here is a fun card using the Candy Cane Christmas Designer Series Paper which has an unusual color scheme for Christmas. This color scheme can be a fun challenge. I’m slowly falling in love with this color combination but I can’t say it will ever be an absolute favorite! Personally, my favorite Christmas color scheme is Navy Blue.
This card is based on the same layout that I posted yesterday but just added a few embellishments. The addition of the glitter brads took this card up a level. Also, notice how I place elements so your eye is drawn to each item in a circular fashion.
- When creating a card or scrapbook page, think about different design concepts such as the Rule of Thirds often used in Photography and by artists. The Rule of Third breaks an image into 9 sections (think of a tic tac toe grid) then elements are placed so they follow along those lines.
- Grouping elements. I also like to group elements to help draw the eye to look at all aspects of a card. For example, I grouped the three brads with the bow.
- The Color Coach is an awesome tool offered by Stampin’ Up! that can help you find a different color combination you may not have considered.
