The card sentiment for today is, in my opinion, a loaded statement and most likely a great conversation starter! 'You can never have too much happy', I will get into why later on but first I wanted to show you my latest and greatest card creation. Here it is I really hope you like it.
|Color palette looks amazing surrounded by all this white.|
The color keeps your eye moving till it lands comfortably on
|A side folding card is just a bit different for this|
modern CAS design.
|So, can you have too much happy?|
I am not sure.. Why?
Well without sadness how can appreciate happy.
I am playing along with three challenges today. The Paper Players is to use 'frames' and keeping the design clean and simple (CAS). My interpretation of frames was outlining some of the hexagons with colors inspired by Create with Connie and Mary challenge. The shadows from the cover plate can also be considered frames. While we are on the subject of CAS, the folks at Addicted to Stamps are making CAS their theme for this week.
Sending my card to:
The color combination is just fantastic for this predominately white card.. It seems that the eye is drawn all over the card from the pops of color that surround it. The outlined black hexagons brings you back to the solid black hexagon and sentiment which is framed by a larger vellum hexagon. Very subtle but very effective.
- Cut and scored my CS to 5.5"x 4.25" (A2)
- Die cut a hexagon cover plate and attached it to the card base.
- Coloring/outlining select hexagons using the challenge color palette.
- Stamped sentiment using VersaMark Ink then heat embossed white on black CS and die cut.
- Die cut a larger vellum hex frame then adhered it behind the sentiment hex.
- Attached the hexes to the card base.
Easy as that! Well not really, I went through many design options before getting to this one and I am very pleased with the outcome.
Thank you so much for stopping by I really do appreciate your visits! If you'd like, please leave a comment good, great or otherwise! I enjoy reading what you have to say. Take care and we will see you sooner then later.
All the best,
