Hi and thanks for stopping by! My hands down favorite technique is color block. I love the clean lines and bold graphic design you can achieve with this effect.
Today I’m sharing a pastel egg design that looks complicated but is very easy.
I started by creating a background with the Tall Triangle dies set. My 4.25 x 5.5″ card base is topped with a slightly smaller panel of dark teal card stock. Next I cut the second largest Tall Triangle twice with a medium teal, and three times with a light teal. I assembled the triangles on their reverse side with washi tape, and trimmed the panel to my card size.
I cut the largest Stitched Egg from the assembled Tall Triangle panel and adhered it to my card base. The pastel eggs are created by cutting the two Stitched Egg dies at the same time. I have a magnetic cutting plate that holds the dies in place for me, but you could also tape the die cuts in place before running them through your die cut machine.
Cutting the Tall Triangle panel with the Stitched Egg left a stitched outline around the die cut opening. The remaining eggs were inserted and adhered inside the egg shaped opening.
The Simple Joy sentiment makes a clean greeting when paired with the Joy and Peace clear stamp set. I love that I’m repurposing a holiday stamp set so I get more value from it.
Wishing you a wonderful day with time to do what you love best!
