It's time for a new Color Challenge (PPA174) at Pals Paper Arts! Get out your supplies and join us for this challenge! You may use any brand of papercrafting supplies to create your card. Take a look at the beautiful palette of fall colors the PPA Resident Artists are working with this week!
I decided to keep it simple and create a card with minimal layers that could be easily mailed with no extra fuss. I pulled out Summer Silhouettes, a set normally used for Spring or Summer themed cards, and challenged myself to make it work for Fall.
I really like the contrast of the Baked Brown Sugar base with Pumpkin Pie and Pear Pizzazz! It acts as a neutral and makes Pumpkin Pie and Pear Pizzazz really stand out! Candy dots in Pumpkin Pie simulate berries and create dimension. A simple scored strip of Pumpkin Pie becomes faux ribbon and adds an additional pop of color and linear balance to the overall look. It's a quick and easy card to make, uses minimal supplies and can be adapted for any occasion!
I hope you like the final product as much as I do! Please leave a comment below! I'd love to hear what you think about my card!
