Ever make something and sit back and say, “OH, for cuuuuuuuuuute!”?
I don’t feel I’m being overly cocky when I tell you this happens to me a lot. It’s been happening for years as a scrapbooker and now it continues as I’ve added cards into the creative mix. As a graphic designer by trade, I should be making visually pleasing things, or I’m in the wrong business, people.
The card I’m sharing today just makes me happy. The white cardstock. The bright pinks, oranges and yellows and the splash of warm, gold embossing powder is a perfect blend for a clean and simple card that actually features quite a few techniques, but none of them too difficult to tackle. Plus, it features a brand new stamp set from me, Yes, You Can.
I’m starting to find my legs in card design. It’s really just like any other canvas and the rules of design help to create something that is pleasing to the eye. I still love my white space, as always, but a card like this just gets me even more geeked about card making.
I love the idea of popping up a panel and having a burst of color in the background that matches the main embellishment. This is really easy to do and yes, you guessed, I have a tutorial to share.
Just a note: I am working to figure out the best app for filming. I use my iPhone because that’s all I have right now for video. I thought I had figured out how to lock the exposure, but clearly, I missed it in a few of the clips. I have a nice DSLR but it’s just too heavy to mount and film with. Trust me, I’ve tried. I’m working on putting together a post to share about the things I’ve found helpful for filming videos from a beginner’s perspective! Hoping to have that ready by next week to share with anyone who thinks, “Well I make cute cards! I should film the process and share it with the world!”
Here is the video tutorial. Enjoy!
One quick note: there are coordinating dies coming for the Yes, You Can stamp set. They just aren’t back from our die maker yet! Stay tuned!
