Enhancing a simple frame card for #GDP081


This week, the Global Design Project challenge has a color challenge. The idea is to create a card design that features a certain set of colors in a card project.  To view the projects for this challenge, please visit the Global Design Project page by clicking here.

Design Choices

When thinking about using these colors in a handmade card, my mind went to Floral Boutique DSP with the deep blue tones and watercolored look. So many choices, though! I decided to use a medium print that could hold it’s own as a background. To echo the floral theme in the foreground, I created a large floral die cut with Special Reason Bundle. The dies cut away the negative space and are very versatile. After stamping and die cutting, I coated the die cuts with Clear Wink of Stella. These design elements are attached and part of a frame that includes the white negative space of the large flower.
