A Different Way to Say Thank You

365_3 Thank You

Today’s card started off as a card sketch challenge and I got really sleepy half way through it so I took a nap.  When I awoke, I forgot about the card and started doing something else.  Ahhh, the life after the Air Force is so harsh (LOL).  But seriously, I often find myself day-dreaming of having water-cooler conversations.

  • Division of color and patterns.  To divide the solid and lined earth-tone colors I used Early Espresso to show a bit of contrast and give a little pop or darker color.  I mean, why does Real Red get all the props when it comes to giving pop to a card!? What other colors would you suggest using instead of Real Red to give some pop?
  • Color Blending (My Way).  In order for the Very Vanilla Flower Medallion to blend with the card base, I cut the layers 1/8 of an inch smaller than the card base to pull from the Very Vanilla color. The card base is A2 size (measures 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″).
