More challenge inspiration - DSC#077
This was a very quick and easy card to make. After creating a cardstock base in Midnight Muse, I cut a 3-1/2" square of Whisper White and a 3" square of Midnight Muse. I also cut out several branches of leaves using the Little Leaves Sizzlits die (#114511). I adhered those leaves using our Multipurpose Glue (#110755) - be careful - a little goes a long way! In doing this, I made sure some of the branches hung off the edge of the blue. Then I trimmed the branches off to make the edges even. I adhered the blue layer to the white layer, and then mounted it to the card using Dimensionals (#104430). After that, I affixed several sizes of our Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246).
TIP: when using multiples of any embellishment, placing them in visual triangles will help move the viewers' eye across the project. In this case, each size of rhinestone was placed in a visual triangle with other rhinestones of the same size.
I added a white piece of cardstock to the inside, but left it blank so that I can grab it and use it for any occasion in the coming months...it's always nice to have a few extras laying around.
I hope you enjoyed this quick & easy card. If you'd like to purchase these, or any current SU! products, please visit my store! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
