Hi crafty friends, today I am trying something new to me and I’m trying to go for a very modern looks with fresh colors and bold stripes. This card was inspired by the wonderful Stephanie Klauck.
I have to admit, originally I had wanted to use the solid floral background stamp and then emboss the fine outline image on top of it, but I just couldn’t figure out how to line up the stamps … so I decided to go with two other layers from the same stamp set 😉
I think for me, the color combination and the stripes are what makes this card “modern”: the gold over the fresh mint color is just something that I can’t associate with traditional color schemes. And the thin patterned paper strip really adds contrast to the otherwise very simple and clean design.
The gold strip of paper was an afterthought: I didn’t like the way the patterned paper bumped against the design, so the gold strip is softening this transition. Of course, I had to add a few sequins for sparkle.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you got inspired!
