Welcome to the Paper Crafts Magazine Card Design Handbook blog hop. I believe you would have learn a lot this week from Paper Crafts Connection and Moxie Fab World blogs as they've posted heaps of the design elements and rules on how to create a WOW factor card :) 10 of us were invited to join this blog hop on sharing some of the rules found in this issue. For today post, I will be focusing on the rule of "Asymmetry" by showing good-to-great cards.
GOOD CARD: The first card I attempt using "focal point" to balance well with the birdie and sentiment...
GREAT CARD: The second card I try to stamp the leaves to the right side and the sentiment up and to the middle. By using "asymmetrical balance", it gives a little bit of fun twist as well as the white space added more balancing towards the card. Furthermore, instead of using normal colour card stock I have used cork texture paper to die cut the birdie in order to create some embellishment on it.
