2017 MFT Superstar Entry

Hello there!  Today, I am joining the fun with My Favorite Things by participating in their "Superstar" card design challenge. I am entering my card into the "Clean & Simple" category described below.

Clean & Simple Genius

"Here is your chance to showcase your innate understanding of design. White space, color theory, and design rules are critical components of pulling off a beautifully clean & simple look. You understand that sometimes, less is more, and you aren’t afraid to show it!"

This is right up my alley, as I LOVE all things color.  And white space. And clean and simple! 

Here is my card:

I began my card by embossing the Chevron Grid background with white embossing powder onto white card stock.  Then, I turned on some music, grabbed some Copics and began coloring away!  What is it about coloring that makes it so relaxing and therapeutic?  

Next, I made my card panel using the Wonky Stitch Rectangle Stax on white card stock and adhered it to a top fold kraft card stock base.  I trimmed down the Chevron panel into a rectangle and popped it on the card base using fun foam.

Here is a better look at the dimension...

And finally, for the sentiment, I used the Big Birthday Wishes stamp set and alternated the white text on black card stock and black text on white card stock.   I really like this look.  It adds more interest, yet it still keeps the design clean.
