I’m sure you already had a look at our challenge “Clean up your act” – some of you have already played along. We love seeing your creations!
Well, I’m a fan of the CAS style. But like many of you, I usually use white card bases, especially for CAS cards. Today I want to show you ways to create clean but colorful cards – without a white card base.
Let’s have a look at the first card:
The card base is dark teal – a color that I LOVE! Some speech bubbles are an easy way to create some eye movement on the card and still keep it CAS. I added some interest by using clothpins, holding the bubbles. Of course the bubbles could have been white – but wouldn’t that be boring? Some neons pop! And by stamping the tweed pattern diagonal we got some more movement. Easy peasy!
Really – no matter what color you use – it’s about adding some details without overloading your card. I often help myself by using wood veneers as an subtile accent – you should try that out!
