The latest special issue from Paper Crafts Magazine, Card Style, is now available. Like I said before, this issue is amazing! The concept is; each section of the magazine has cards in a particular style. Cards which are brilliantly designed and spot-on in their genre. After reading through the issue the other night, I am totally inspired and very proud to be a part of this issue (not to mention being on the cover!! eeee! :))
Because each project had to be exactly in each style, it was a challenge to create projects! A good challenge though, because it made me think about each and every element I placed on a card. I guess that made it easy to edit what I could and couldn't use. :)
Here is my project to share with you today. My style (at least for today :)) is Classy and Elegant. I definitely gravitate towards this style-classy colors with timeless design elements. Think Pottery Barn and Martha Stewart.
The card started out with wood paper for the background. LOVE that! Then I die cut a pendant shape from black cardstock and placed it along the left hand side. I trimmed the excess away. Then I proceeded to use several left-over smaller accent pieces that came from the original cut, so I could create a damask-looking image. Black pearls were added to places they just seemed to fit perfectly. To keep the classy look, the sentiment was stamped in black ink.
Wood, pearls, black, scripted font, damask. Absolutely timeless elements. Each one staying within its style.
Ready for a different style? Because here is the super duper fun part of today, the Mystery Blog Hop! I am giving you a link to another project, from an amazing designer, in another style. Consider it research for your next card! :) Click the photo below or click HERE to continue on the hop.
