Inspired by Soap Packaging, Part 2

Note: Yesterday's post was for the September One-Layer Simplicity Challenge #31, Back in Time. I hope you'll play along this month. It was so much fun!

Back to soap packaging. This photo on Pinterest was so inspiring!


Today's card takes advantage of the layout in the butterfly package on the top right.

One thing we based the OLS Challenge on is the notion that clean-and-simple cardmaking is in the details. When you pay attention to the little things, good design happens. In this case, a very simple design gets elevated by adding two gold elements: the centers of the poinsettias and the gold border.

This card was okay without the gold, but adding those touches really makes me happy. The poinsettia centers were added with a metallic gold gel pen, and the edging with my handy Prismacolor gold metallic broad-tip pen.

Whenever your design seems a tad blah, start looking around in your stash for supplies to add a touch of wonderful!
