Green on Green Card0
One of the nice things about making cards for people for their special occasions is the ability to be able to really personalise them to what they love the most. Papermilldirect card really lets you do this so easily with their amazing colour range - they have the perfect shade for everyone. As soon as I saw this Papermilldirect Spring Green card I knew it had to be a card for my Mother in Law. It is not usually a colour that I would rush to work with. However green is her favourite colour, and this shade is her absolute perfect shade of it. I paired it with the Papermilldirect Dark Green Card for a nice contrast, and added in a pop of Papermilldirect Smooth White for the image to be water coloured onto.
I layered dies, frames and banner shapes on this one for more texture and dimension. I foam mounted the flowers in the jar on top of it all. To add some interest to the dark green background panel I used my score board to add some diagonal lines across it. This is a very simple trick, easy to do, and yet it gives a very big impact. You can see these score lines a little better in the image below.
I left the sentiment off the card and added a larger one inside the card, along with the handmade greeting. I felt the card just looked lovely and simple and understated as it was and didn't want to add anything more to it than the little gems. I hope this inspires you to play with some different colour combinations than usual, and give it a go!
