Papertrey Ink's annual Stamp-a-Faire event was this past weekend and I've been watching all of the challenge videos and working on projects. Here is my card for the Take Ten Warm Up Challenge.
I chose the black and white inspiration photo because the classic color scheme immediately jumped out at me. There are great color combos in the other choices though! I pulled out Background Basics: Geometrics to create the background on my card. It was the first set to pop into my mind when I saw the photo.
I cut the floral silhouette twice from black cardstock using the Petite Pots dies by Papertrey Ink and glued them together. I cut the word "hello" using the Noted die in both white and black cardstock, offsetting the layers for a shadow effect. I stamped the sentiment from Wet Paint on white cardstock and cut it into a strip. Once I glued everything in place, the card was done. Simple, but very striking!
