The card on the right is my original card. The Pinefeather cardstock background is so beautiful, but I tend to lean more towards lighter colors, so I decided to go back in for a redo!

Since I liked my original layout and design, I kept it the same for the most part. I switched up the outside frame and made it a different color from my inside panel and I decided to make my orchid colors pop more.

I also went with more matching colors for the background repeated sentiment and the die cut focal sentiment, as opposed to the quite different, black and chartreuse, in the original. Anyone else still fawning over the new Weathervane grey??? I’m obsessed. It goes with everything. πŸ™‚

By using a white panel in the background instead of a matching Spring Moss panel, the repeated sentiment pops more and creates added texture and interest behind the focal point. This draws the eye in and that orchid locks it down! πŸ˜‰

Transformation Tuesday // Papertrey Ink

Hello friends and welcome to a fun Transformation Tuesday with Papertrey Ink! If you aren’t quite familiar with this new feature, we are basically taking a card we’ve made in the past that we haven’t been 100% happy with, and showing you how we are re-creating it to be something we love!

Today I am working with this card from last year’s Papertrey releases:

Now although I don’t hate this card, it just felt like it was missing my style a bit. I have this weird thing where I like what I make to really feel like *me* and this card just felt a little bit off.

To get started, I went through what I really liked about this card… 1) color scheme, 2) twine, 3) the cutout concept. So with these things in mind and being used as my inspiration, I created a new card.

A couple of the things I really wanted to change about this card were the kraft cardstock, and the notched corners. For some reason, I just wasn’t vibing with them haha. I decided to go with a more clean cut card that felt a little bit more Clean and Simple.

I kept my color scheme basically the same but switched out the Raspberry Fizz for Berry Sorbet. And instead of using the coordinating dies for the cutout concept, I went with one of the Scalloped Tag Dies instead to create a focal point more around my sentiment.

And finally, to keep those clean lined edges, I used a Berry Sorbet card base as opposed to having an extra layer on the top of my card.
