Sometimes all it takes for a great card is the perfect die cut to go with a fun sentiment stamp! Designer Corri Garza used a My Mind’s Eye 6″x6″ paper pad to create a wonderfully coordinated splash of pattern on this fun card. It might be tempting to use shades of brown and black with a coffee-themed stamp and a coffee cup die cut, but the bright graphic patterns give a much happier tone to the card and its sentiment. The key is to mix the colors and size of the patterned paper. Corri contrasted the bold plaid with a more subtle geometric patterned paper.
