Layering Paper Shapes – Positive Vibes Only

Layering Paper Shapes – Positive Vibes Only

Hello my lovely friends, ready for one more card?

Layering Paper Shapes - 4

This one uses the leftover heart banner / border from this card.

I only layered a few flower images / ephemera, a sentiment sticker / ephemera “positive vibes” and a few enamel dots to go with the leftover gold heart border piece :-)

Here are some tips & tricks I like to go with when layering paper shapes on my cards.

  1. Stick to some sort of color scheme with 2-3 main colors. For this card I went with pink and gold as my main colors. The green and black are only in moderation and are not competing with the pink and gold.
  2. In this case the pink flowers have a gold center, so I added gold heart border and the sticker that has gold letters. I also used pink shaded enamel dots one of which is sparkly. This way I added more gold areas to balance the pink areas.
  3. Bring balance in terms of sizes of various shapes used – the flowers are roughly same in size here and the gold border is cut to almost that size.
  4. Leave a lot of white space – I think I am fan of clean and simple cards, so I like a lot of white space on my cards.

There you go. I will share more tips in the upcoming cards too. Please let me know what tricks you use, would love to learn from you :-)
