GCD + A Color Combo!


     Just wanted to share a couple of cards of mine that appeared in GCD's The Paper Cut, a free monthly e-zine filled with ideas for layouts, cards and projects as well as tips, tricks and techniques. My challenge was to create cards using pink, yellow and aqua.
Soft yellow lines provide a background of movement for the fun polka-dotted stars of pink and turquoise (an aqua tone). By using a color's tints (light hues) and tones (dark hues) you can help you get more mileage out of several colors.

Since lines are usually a strong and hard element, I used polka dotted paper
 from Flower Child to soften the design of this card.

A fun trend in paper crafting right now is confetti. I created confetti by punching circles of patterned paper from Flower Child and Oh Happy Day, and arranged them on the card to create some movement!

Well, that's it for me today! Check the blog for more amazing ideas and projects all month long!
