Moxie Fab Repetition Challenge


It's taken me a long time to come to realization that you can actually learn how to make your cards better.  I know, obvious, right?  But not to me - I thought that some people were just naturally more talented at it and I was doomed to forever feel like a second class card maker.
And while I'm still fairly sure some of my favorite card makers just have more of an eye for color and design than I do, taking online classes has helped me  A LOT.
So when I saw the Paper Crafts "Card Design " edition, I was delighted.  "173 tips to design like a pro?"  Sold.
This card was made using the guidelines for Balance/Repetition as well as the guidelines for color - a gallon of orange, a quart of black and a pint of currant.    The repetition design element was featured on the Moxie Fab blog too - as soon as I saw the challenge, I knew I had the perfect stamp for it.  It's the skull from the A Muse Nevermore set, one of my current obsessions...

It wasn't that obvious to me either. It took me years to finally clue in that maybe if I took an online class I could learn how to make cards. :) Funny enough, clean & simple are the hardest for me to make. This card is a perfect example of clean lines and simple design that is combined into fabulousness. (is that even a word?) :)
