OK I know it is trendy and popular now to use card sketches but I have always used them to record my card designs. So I thought I would show you a couple of examples of how to use a basic two “panel” design in three different ways. The card front is split into two patterns and then divided with an embellishment. A focal point is provided by using die cuts and stamped images.
The first has a single patterned panel but being on textured card the use of the ric rac gives it the appearance of two panels. The co-ordinating die cuts completes the look.
The second one has two complementary patterned papers from the same paper stack used on each side with a similar themed stamp used and coloured to match.
The last one which I think is the most creative using two green panels with a vintage lace separating and combining the panels with two gorgeous die cut butterflies. Both butterflies follow the theme of the card – one from a lace like paper and the other from a deeper green patterned paper.
So next time you are creating a card think about how you can use the same design in different ways to create a few more cards for your stash.
