It is possible to have too much of a good thing. This week's Tip of the Week is to use your designer series paper as an accent, or highlight, rather than the focal point. This is especially true with busy or large patterns. As much as I love designer series paper...and you know I do!...it shouldn't always the focal point of your card making. Use it to add just a pop of color or texture to catch your attention, but not overwhelm.
I love the fluid motion of this card. My friend and fellowStamping Bee team member, Amy Bryson, made this for me. I've used it on my display board at all my summer events and it never fails to get compliments. I just love how used the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper to tie in the Night of Navy and So Saffron together.
