PTI Blog Hop
This month's challenge was to try a nontraditional color scheme for a card or tag. Nichole put together six different color schemes and I picked this one:
The pinks and turquoises are so happy together! :)
I created a couple cards using this scheme. Here's the first one.
I adhered strips of cardstock to my card base - Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Hawaiian Shores, and Aqua Mist. Then, I die cut a banner out of white cardstock and stamped "be merry." on it. I got the stamp a long time ago and not sure who the manufacturer is but I thought the modern sans serif font was a good match for the minimalist look of the card.
Here's another card I did following this same scheme and layout - just moved around the cardstock strips and changed the sentiment.
And here they are together.
Do you prefer one over the other? I think I like the first one best. Maybe because of the font of the sentiment, or maybe it's because of the order of the cardstock strips. Can't quite pin it down.
Also, I should note that the layout of this card was completely inspired by a piece of stationery I saw on Pinterest. Isn't it a great layout?!
Enjoy the rest of your hopping.
