Day 3's lessons were tips on as using bold patterns. One of the ideas shared was backing a negative diecut shape with a bolder pattern so I gave it a try - again apologies for the blue cast on the photos... the cards are so more vibrant than these photos suggest... :-(
The first card is fairly CAS using a flower die set from MFT and an older paper line from Basic Grey. The sentiment is from Lil Inkers and the banner die is from Simon Says Stamp. I actually liked how it turned out :-) so I tried another busier card... not as happy with second one, but it is going to a little girl who will love it regardless so I can live with it. Patterned paper on the second one is MME My Girl and the diecuts are from Cottage Cutz (rabbit), Quickutz (pinwheel) and Simon Says Stamp (banner). The sentiment is Papertrey Ink.
