Tags til Christmas Color Twist!

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.

SunnyGirlScraps Tips:

  • 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.
