Sending Peace – SSS May 2021 Card Kit

You know, in the creative process, not everything goes according to plan. The May 2021 card kit from Simon Says Stamp featured all of these great dandelion images, and I decided to try pairing it up with this cool paper from the DCWV Serenity Stack which also featured dandelion images. How perfect a match could that be right?

Well…the large graphic design on the paper would have been completely unrecognizable on a standard A2 card, so I decided on a slimline. I stamped my image on a matching piece of cardstock and layered up all the pieces. But, it was too much of the burnt orange. I tried breaking up the background with that black diagonal stripe accent, but I’m not sure that helped much.

In the end, it’s not my favourite piece I’ve ever made, but I decided to share it anyway!
