Hello again. Time for Club Scrap Blog Hop. I am having a busy overwhelming hot summer, probably many more with similar experiences. This month I chose clean and simple. No fancy backgrounds or techniques. These are the perfect "stash Buster" projects, generic, simple and timeless. In thinking about this months kit, I kept going back to the Superman and Batman comic strips. Somehow the paper and fonts in this kit reminded of those simpler times, so that is what I did, simple. Before we dive into the cards, lets take care of the travel plans. You should have arrived from: DEB. If you need to start at the beginning: Click Here!
The techniques are all the same. I chose background papers to ground the image, stamped the image in a dark ink, either black or brown and heat embossed in clear and fussy cut. Added an sentiment or saying, also stamped in a dark ink and heat embossed. So lets look at each card and discuss the design elements.
Created the same as the first one. Only difference was that I used copics to color the rollodex and fussy cut out the Happy Birthday. If you look close, I used the angle of the letters to guide the cuts. This adds interest and avoids all that white space. Again a few sequins just to fill it and balance. I hand lettered the saying on the Rolodex. I think this is the perfect , opps forgot your birthday card, but again the formulae is simple and easy to create on a moments notice..
I made all three cards in less than 1 hour after I had the design elements worked out. All are A2 cards and while not my usual cards, are unique and clearly one of a kind. Isn't that why we make them?
Hope you enjoyed this foray into simple. Your next stop is: Jennifer.
Until next week when it is time for Team Challenge,
