Welcome to Transformation Tuesday!

We all have cards that don’t necessarily turn out the way we had envisioned or a project that we designed to be feminine that could be made masculine with a few tweaks. Some of you may remember the Recipe Remix Challenge from SAF 2013. It’s sort of like that (but with our own projects instead of customer submitted projects). The idea is to show a project transformed into something fresh and new.

Join Laurie Schmidlin today as she changes things up to showcase the die cut elements on her card design.

“Ever since I created the Holly Jolly card for the September release, I knew that I wanted a chance to remake it.  Even though I adore all of the colors, they just never seemed right with this design.  I kept the overall design the same but changed up a few details.  I added Bitty Big patterned paper to the background, changed up the accent images, and added some sponging to the die cut so that it would stand out more.  I really am pleased with how the transformed card turned out and feel like it showcases the lovely die cuts better.”
