When I posted these two birthday cards the other day, one of my faithful readers (hi, Cat!) wondered what they'd look like with colored card stock fronts instead of white. Today I made two. Here's the first one:
I do think I like it better than all that white. The sentiment got lost in the background, so I added an off-set layer of black for contrast.
Note: The Quickie Glue pen isn't the best adhesive for these die-cuts. It's easy to apply, but the stick isn't as good while you're working with it.
The card seemed boring, so I added clear Wink of Stella to the word and then drowned it in Glossy Accents:
That was SU Bermuda Bay, and this one is SU Poppy Parade (I think - it's feral card stock in my drawer):
and the detail:
Sorry about the blinding gold balloon.
I'm not sure which I like better:
I think they both have their merits, but now I'm leaning towards the colored panel..
Thanks, Cat, for the suggestion. I've used a few more inches of that SU DSP. :D
Thanks for stopping by!
