Simple Yet Elegant Card
Words that describe simple yet elegant are restrained, graceful, refined, tasteful. It’s using the various elements in harmony with each other. It’s also timeless. So often we use elements that are the in vogue and will not stand the test of time.
So that is what I set out to do.
Create a simple yet elegant card with these hints. To get started decide:
- The main colour. In this card, my main colour was Sweet Sugar Plum. Rich Razzleberry and Emerald Envy are strong colours that compliment the Sweet Sugar Plum.
- The stamp set. The only stamping on this card is the sentiment.
- How much and where to position the focal point or, in other words, where does your eye go first.. The focal point on this card is the group of flowers and leaves cut with the Flourish Thinlits.
- Finally, decide on embellishments, if any. The embellishments are simply the strip of natural trim with silver accents and the very vanilla lace.
