Clean & Simple Boutique Cards
For my next Altenew Educator Certification Program submission, we were challenged to make clean and simple cards. Clean and simple can be tough because those embellishments are just screaming to be adhered to your project. The toughest thing with clean and simple is less is more. The Altenew class, Clean and Simple Boutique Cards gave me some great ideas of how to achieve this difficult look. Using metallic elements and lots of white space lends to a great clean and simple card. Using Altenew's great floral sets helps because they come in such intricate and wonderful designs that you don't need much else on the card. Click below to read more about how I made this card.
1) Choose a great image
For this card, I used Altenew Persian Motif stamp set. I had already colored in the images. In a previous post, I detailed out how I color on the go. For these floral images, I used Prismacolor Premier colored pencils. I chose to use the largest floral from this set. I love the details of these stamps and the loose flow of these images.
2) Tone on tone and lots of white
3) Use metallic elements
4) Minimalistic sentiment
