Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff
Today's idea is an Ombre background. Ombre is just
a variation in one or two color families from dark to light.
Here is a closeup of the punched border (Martha Stewart-Embroidery punch)
in five shades of yellow. I started with a piece of card stock (yellow)
5x7 inches. I punched the border from the five colors to fit across the piece of
yellow card stock. Starting with the lightest color, I overlapped the pieces and
I love this bright fun birthday scene by Art Gone Wild (AGC1-2594)
Here is the finished card. After I finished adhering the border pieces to the
yellow piece of 5x7 inch card stock, I finished the top with a piece of designer paper
Basic Gray 6x6 paper pad- Cupcake. And a top border (EK Success) in white.
I matted the image with white then green card stock. I glued a green striped ribbon across, over the paper and the borders, and added a ribbon bow. Glittered pink stars are a Sizzix die. I glued the entire piece to a blank 5x7 white card.
I used borders to create my Ombre background, but you can use punched circles, stars, or anything else you can come up with.
Hope you have a chance to try this Ombre background.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great Monday. Until later.......
