I fashioned this card after Clean & Simple's post today, which mentioned using black to make things POP. Well... what do you think?? I color-matched the cupcakes to the patterned paper using my Copic markers. I used a cool shade around the cupcakes and stand to offset them from the white in the paper. It is hard to see, but I doubled-up my ribbon, with a crisp blue on a cute orange plaid organza. OH, and did you notice the cute little cherries with their glossy opaque white shiny spot? Gotta love the details!
Don't let the simplicity of this card fool ya either. I had to keep slimming my paper down to the 1/16" to get that checkered piece to fit nicely between the two blacks! UGH! It was worth it since it turned out cute; at least I think so.
Anyone have a birthday coming up??
