Happy last Monday of the year! Today, I have a pretty *sweet* swap card from a fellow demonstrator, Theresa Sweet!
This card uses tons of stamps from the Nature’s Prints bundle, which was also used in last week’s card. But the two cards are completely different, and shows how versatile stamp sets can be! This card has a super natural and organic feel, with the minimalistic colours, simple working and asymmetric ink “blots”. The organic shapes and the soft edges gives this card a very inviting and non-intimidating feel which can be hard to come by when it comes to elaborate and sophisticated cards.
Furthermore, the slight layering of the greenery and the ink creates a lot of visual depth and intricacy. This clean design is easy to digest visually, and the open space creates a sense of peace and calmness that some super complicated cards cannot offer. But when it comes to little details to pull the whole look together, I really appreciate the fact that it’s the same blue that runs everywhere from the leaves in the centerpiece to the words to the banner design to the borders. Finally, I love the different sized iridescent rhinestones that are subtle, yet fun. They add the extra pizzazz the card would have needed otherwise, and pull the whole card together!
Thank you so much, Theresa, for sending me this gorgeous card and a bigger thank you to all of you who have been keeping up with me all year, despite the ups and downs and uncertainty with COVID! I can’t wait to see what next year brings, and until then, have a great rest of your holiday season and Happy New Year!
