Working in neutral colors in a clean and simple card design can be a joy or a nightmare. Overcomplicating a cardmaking design is far too easy. At times I look at a component for a day before I decide to create a card with it. Having a design in mind before you start, can really help the process. In deciding to make this card, I wanted a tone on tone look with the leaves and flowers. But there would need to be a color disruption to balance the design visually. Hmmm…… in comes the diagonal stripe of the patterned paper 🙂 Problem solved!
Using the Glassine paper for the die cut was not difficult. Glassine is very thin but it does not tear when I use it for die cutting. What I do like the most about it is the way the wings curl up on the Dragonflies That’s not my work, it’s the paper 🙂
Measurements for this project are:
-Card Base of Tip Top Taupe card stock: 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ (scored and folded from 4 1/4″ x 11″)
-Whisper White card stock (for the layer) cut at 3 3/4 ” x 5 1/2″
-2015/2016 In Color DSP layer cut at 2″ x 5 1/2″
-Tip Top Taupe card stock (for the card front) cut at 3 5/8 ” x 5 1/2″
-Glassine Sheet paper (Acetate) scrap cut at 4″ x 5″ for Dragonflies die cut
-Whisper White & Tip Top Taupe card stock scraps for sentiment die cut
