Designer Deena Ziegler is here today with a card that shows blocking taken to a whole new level!
Deena used blocking on this card to create distinct areas for two different sentiment phrases on the front of the card, allowing them to co-exist in the design without seeming to compete with each other. The longer sentiment got a larger, more elaborate mounting block, while the simpler sentiment (happy birthday) got a smaller, simpler background block. This also helped the card’s balance by giving the eye someplace to rest that wasn’t too busy.

As a young mom Deena became a professional crafter, and now she works at Sizzix as a Craft Designer, teaches card making classes, teaches online at My Creative Classroom, and owns and operates a small card kit business – and she blogs all about it. Deena enjoys finding ways to be creative in daily life by repurposing, giving handmade and creating with her daughters.
