At our Candy Hearts team meeting in May, I received some great swap cards. Today I’m sharing one that was made by Susan Ballentine. She used the new Share What You Love Designer Series Paper along with some great products that carried over to the new catalog to make this great card in shades of green. I love all the “white space” on this card, with all the decor concentrated at the bottom right. It has an asymmetrical but balanced look.

 

Here’s what she made:

  • Share What You Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 4-1/4″ x 3″, then cut diagonally from the top right to the bottom left
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″

Die cut using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits:

  • leaves from a scrap of Lemon Lime Twist CS x 3
  • the geometric pattern from a scrap of Mint Macaron CS, then cut it out around the edges using Paper Snips

  • one dragonfly from a scrap of Tranquil Tide CS
  • one dragonfly from a scrap of the DSP

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
