Poppy Parade, one of the retiring In-Colors has become one of my favorites. I didn't appreciate this vibrant color until I opened a pack of "Everyday Enchantment" Designer Series Paper from this year's Sale-A-Bration. I'm really sad to see this beauty go.
If this card looks familiar, it is. You'll find it featured on page 18 of the 2012 Occasions Mini catalog in blue. It's interesting to see how a simple change in color changes the entire feel of the card.
One of the things I like about this design is the subtle sentiment achieved by using tone on tone. It's light enough to make the reader pull it close, and dark enough to make them realize there's something more. A little tease to have them really look at the card to appreciate the texture and layering you've done.
Most things on this card are retired or retiring but I hope you'll be inspired to see what you can do with a favorite design and different color choices.
Tips & Tricks: Experiment with color and texture using a card you've created in the past as your template.
