Before we get to today's card, I want to pass along a question from reader Laura H., who asked me if the Tim Holtz Deco Sheets work well with dies. As I don't have a die cut machine of any sort, I'm useless to her on this, but perhaps one of you fine stampers can help her out. How do those glimmery, adhesive-backed sheets work with dies?
Thanks in advance!
Now, for the snow storm.
Generally speaking, I love white space. Well, duh. But sometimes--very rarely--my CAS-lovin' heart looks at a card with lots of white space and says, "Meh. Kick it up a notch."
That's what happened with today's card. Originally, there were just three snowflakes arranged in a lovely triangle over the sentiment. Boy, did it look blah. I suspect the sentiment is just too large and the snowflakes too spaced out. The idea of Winter Wonderland just didn't go with two smallish and one mediumish snowflake.
When I started adding the large and small snowflakes to the edges of the card, the whole design came together. The veritable snow storm of lovely purple flakes makes much more sense with the sentiment, lending some overall unity to the design.
So white space isn't always a good idea.
Wow. You have no idea how hard that was to type.
