Wishing You Weren’t So Far Away

  • Stamp -Simon Says Stamp! “Square Sayings”
  • Patterned papers – Echo Park Paper “For the Record 2″ 6 X 6” paper pad
  • Embossing folder – Cuttlebug Anna Griffin “Poppy”
  • Rhinestones – Queen & Company
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

Here is an Operation Write Home card that features pretty patterned papers, a nice textured background, and some healthy “white space” that showcases the other elements of the card. I used a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (#104) for the basic design. This card is an example of using white space to draw the eye to the main design elements of this card, as described in Design Boot Camp at Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps. Since I tend toward simpler cards, I enjoy using white space as it can really give the eye a rest. Thanks for stopping by–I know it has been a while since I’ve posted. I’ll try to turn that around!
