Ombre is hot! We’re used to seeing ombre in a watercolor style, but our designer for the day, Susie Moore, reinterpreted it and created an ombre look here with patterned paper. The lightest area of the ombre gradation leads the eye perfectly to focus on the focal point image.
Small details can really help tell a story on a card. On this one, the pearls set a feminine tone but are contrasted by the more masculine twine – echoing the same visual contrast in the focal image. The twine also adds a thematic touch, appearing reminiscent of shoelaces and football pad ties.
