Summer school at MFT is rapidly coming to a close, and I’m just making it to the finish line with my final card. This card is for day five, which is ‘white space’. (If you mised them here are day one, day two, day three, and day four.) I’m a fan of clean and simple, so this challenge was ideal for me. And I made sure to really embrace the white space for my design.
I started by creating a panel of white cut to 1/4″ smaller than my card base. I then cut off 1″ from the bottom before cutting an angled line through the remaining panel. This allowed me to easily create a channel through the panel which would have perfectly parallel lines.
Next unused the MFT Band Aid Dienamics to create plasters in yellow and brown, each with the alternative colour as a square, as well as a red heart to go on each one. I used Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to adhere the layers of the plaster together.
I lined up the plasters in the channel of the card panel with a brown on the centre and yellow on the edges. I trimmed the excess pieces away and adhered everything to the card base. I used double sided tape to adhere the panel, and Tombow for the plasters. I made sure to use my T-square ruler to get everything correctly lined up.
I finished the card by adding a sentiment. The one I used was retired but any get well sentiment could be used. I stamped it with Altenew Ruby Red ink.
Clean and simple cards can be really fun to make, but the simplicity does mean having to be a bit more accurate because mistakes are easier to notice than they would be on a busier design. That’s why I used my ruler for checking alignment, and an adhesive eraser for removing any glue spillage. I think this design worked out really well in the end. What do you think?
