Inspirational Cards #3

Hello! This is the third post in the {Inspirational Cards} series sharing my projects from the Big Picture Classes (BPC) Create & Share Cardmaking class with Kim Kesti.  It was hard to top the first cards I did, but these are my front runners.
Tip: Always keep proportion in mind when creating a card or layout. Design is key.
Technique:  Layer washi tape at an angle and then cut or punch out an image from the washi tape pattern (see butterflies above).  Also use the piercing tool to punch holes on the outer edge of cardstock for a unique border.

 Tip: Layer and raise the pieces of your cards for an impactful design.
Technique:  Power of three - to nail the design element of your projects, think in threes.  It's a symmetrical number to the human mind if structured in a triangle-like placement.  Reference the flowers and the flamingo dots above. 

Tip: Add in a neutral paper to a pack; it works! (Kraft cardstock above)
Technique:  Wrap bakers twine around the cardstock as desired and tie in a knot.  Tie an additional small piece to get the look above.

Thanks for checking out my cards!  Hope you enjoyed them. Happy Crafting! :)
