Last week I shared some tips for using Designer Series Paper (DSP) in this post: Designing Handmade Cards. I showed one way to use a bold design that could easily detract from the focal point of your card. Today’s card is another example of how to use a rather busy design without overwhelming the rest of the card. You can add it as a layer, with only a small portion of it showing behind a background:
You can see the flowered DSP just peeking out from behind the card stock, repeating the color of the Pool Party Twine and tag. It seems a shame to cover up so much of the DSP, but you really have to figure out what you want people to see most on a card. If their eye is drawn to the background instead of your focal point, your design is not going to feel harmonious to the viewer.
The time for Sale-a-Bration is already halfway gone, so don’t forget to celebrate the FREE merchandise from Stampin’ Up!
