Here I am back with our next prompt of 2013! It's been lovely seeing the cards made so far, but I wonder if anyone is going to join me on the epic Christmas Cracker adventure of 2013? ;o)
This week we're focusing on "clean and simple".
This is a style of cardmaking I much admire but rarely ever do... for some reason I find it quite a challenge!
We can also think of it as a bit of a creative detox. Getting back to the basics and making something with a minimal amount of elements that is not only satisfying creatively but visually too.
So, here's the card I made for the main prompt this week:
Paper: Crate Paper
Dies: PTI, MFT
I wanted to give my card a bit of a lift so the butterflies stood out from the background. I die-cut the butterflies from the main background paper, then covered the apertures from the back with the reverse side of this same sheet of patterned paper and stuck it down on my card blank.
Then I with the die-cut butterflies left over I flipped them over and scored down their middles and stuck only half the butterfly down in the original aperture, folding the other half back so it popped out nicely.
Really clean and simple but it looks pretty effective in real life. :)
I'll be posting my Christmas Cracker card for this prompt later this week.
