Clean & Simple Class – Day 2

Day 2 was all about totally flat cards. One concept presented was using masking to make it seem like there were layers. Honestly, I just felt to lazy to try that. The other concept was a good layout balanced by heaviness of the images.

My first card attempted that. I used both the solid and outlined images to differ the weight.

While this is a mistletoe image, I made sure my colors and sentiment allowed that the card could be a Valentine or a Christmas card.


his next card attempts the weighted layout by varying the color. I also trimmed the card square because my images were small. I used a lighter color at the top and a darker one on the left. The sentiment feels like a good anchor to me (love the vertical flow of the sentiment).

Hopefully I can get caught up this weekend!

Thanks for taking a peek!
