Basic Card Layout #13

Published on 15 October 2023 at 09:00

Hello, my crafty friends!  Today I bring another Basic Card Layout for you.  This is a super simple layout.  Just by adding extra cardstock and DSP it adds so much to the layout.  Note how my base is a solid, then a patterned DSP, then the focal point starts with a solid and has a DSP allowing all the patterns to work just by breaking up the design with a solid color.


Also a Quick Tip today:  Do you have any acrylic blocks that have turned cloudy?  If so, take your heat gun to them and they turn clear again.  I did this with one of my clear blocks last night and it works so well!


I have an extra Paper Pumpkin Kit from last month---that is today's giveaway!

That’s definitely an easy layout. I’m going to try it with fall colors. I need to make a retirement card and think it will work well for that. Also great too about fixing the cloudy block!! Thanks for sharing that!
