Makeover Monday: One Tag Fits All Baby Card

I'm a few hours late because I feel asleep working last night, but I'm going to back-date this post because I can't have "Makeover Monday" on Tuesday! ha ha!

I teamed up with my friend Jen Davidson again for a card makeover featuring the One Tag Fits All stamp set from the Occasions Catalog. Check it out:

Jen tends to create monochromatic cards because she's not sure what colors to pair together. My advice is to choose designer paper with several colors, like the Lullaby design in the "After" card. Then pull the color combination from that design. In this case, I didn't end up using any additional colors from the design (Hello Honey, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, and Sahara Sand), but by using a design that incorporates both the Hello Hone and the Coastal Cabana, it pulls those two colors together and makes them seem less random.

Other changes:
  • I extended the designer paper to both edges of the card.
  • I changed the shape of the greeting layer to better fit the image size and layered it.
  • I stamped the image in black and colored it to make it POP.
  • I changed the ribbon to a wider piece of cardstock to create a strong base and "anchor" down the stamped image.
If I could only change ONE thing about Jen's card it would be to stamp the image in black and color it. This single thing would really make her card pop. Not sure which black ink to choose?
