Here is a second fun card using the Candy Cane Christmas Designer Series Paper which has an unusual color scheme for Christmas. With this card, I used a different pattern and glitter brads to show how just a few small adjustments can change a look of a card. Another change was the ink color used for the sentiment at the bottom of the card.
This card is based on the same layout that I posted the past two days but with a few changes. The addition of the glitter brads took this card up a level but the change to glitter brads in the same color as the ribbon also added a new dimension. 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 “Leading Lines.” Leading Lines are used to lure the eye deeper into the subject or project. Straight, curved, parallel, or diagonal lines are all good at promoting interest. In photography, good examples could be roads, rivers, streams, bridges, branches, or fences but there are endless things that could be used. In this project, my leading lines are found in the Designer Series Paper.
- Grouping elements. Different elements that are the same color grouped together help draw the eye towards that grouping.
- Stampin’ Up! punches are a great option to help you create interesting elements. For example, I used two different punches on this card to help create interest.
