If you like to make Corner Fold Cards, I’ve got a stunning one for you using Peekaboo Peach to set off the artwork! Combine the peach with Rose Red and Always Artichoke, and you’ve got a high contrast yet harmonious color combination. The flower and leaves are from the Birthday Blooms set, which is very popular for cardmakers who love to color stamped images! The “Happy Birthday” in the awesome font is from Butterfly Basics. If you’re like me, it’s likely to become your favorite stamp for birthday cards!
The basic design of the Corner Fold Card is appealing because it makes such good use of a diagonal line, a very effective element in a handmade card. In addition, the cut-out flower and leaves are positioned to enhance that diagonal line.
The one thing I pondered in this design is whether the Peekaboo Peach liner is too strong for the artwork. When I first look at the card, I tend to see the peach background first because it’s so strong. Then I find my eye easily drifts down to the flower, and tends to come to rest there. What do you think? Is the Peekaboo Peach liner too much, or does it provide a compelling frame for the focal point? Leave a comment and let me know how your eye sees this design.
These are the kind of questions you need to ask yourself when you’re creating handmade cards. When you make choices based on time-honored design principles, you’ll easily know how to answer those questions!
