Week #14: LEAF

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

 

How about some foliage this week?  In some parts of the world, it's autumn and the trees are displaying a wonderful array of colors!  In other parts, things are green as ever!  Wherever you live, take a moment to think about what a leaf represents for you.

**Remember, if you don't have a leaf stamp, it's not a big deal because the cue word never has to be taken literally!  Maybe "leaf" makes you think of flowers, spring, growth, nature, birds, etc!  There are endless possibilities with this!  The cue word is simply a springboard into your creativity!

The design team has created some wonderful cards for inspiration and Bridget, last week's winner, is joining us as our guest designer!

An embossed background is a great way to add interest to a CAS card without losing all that clean, crisp white space!

A simple white on white design can be taken to the next level by the using die cut elements in a fun way.

By using gradient colour, you can add depth to your one layer CAS design.

Using unexpected items (a leaf as a stamp) can yield surprising and beautiful results!


Jen

When using a busy focal point, keep the rest of the card super simple.


design defined:
By placing the focal point off center, you can easily add interest to your card.


 Now go have fun and don't forget to link up your LEAF creations by Sunday at noon (CST)!
