In reference to the dilemma of yesterday's post, it was the color and the image.
|This is SOOOOO much better.|
Changing both the pink ink to green AND the solid flower to an outline that is more obviously styled to match the tree, and the envelope "belongs" much better with the card.
Note also the nothingness inside the flower. It draws you in. Ponder it for a while.
And then move on to...
Another entry for One-Layer Simplicity #5: Fabulous Flowers!
This card was entirely inspired by a whole set of New Year's Eve cards for 2003 in 1,000 Greetings, that endless font of inspiration that several of you have purchased. Wise choice.
The particular inspiration card I used for this had four vellum panels, each with one number of the year in big, big type integrated into a sentence or phrase in tiny type. The vellum panels layered onto each other interestingly (read: busily), but I loved the interplay of a big image and little type. My card doesn't go to the big/tiny extremes of the inspiration piece, but I still love how it plays with scale anyway.

Just a tip: when you ink up half a sentiment, stamp, clean, ink the other half, and stamp again, MAKE SURE YOU CLEAN THE STAMP THOROUGHLY BETWEEN INKINGS!!!!
